Watch Rihanna Electrify Rock In Rio
Rihanna hasn't released a studio album since 2012, and her attention's focused more on her second career in fashion and her personal fragrance these days — but at Rock In Rio this past Saturday (September 26) she reminded the world that she's still very much a pop queen.
The singer's hour and 12 minute-long headlining set appeared to thrill the massive Brazil crowd. It opened with the R8 track teased in a Dior ad back in May (which heavily samples Florence + the Machine's "Only If For a Night"), and tore into a hits-heavy mix of some recent singles and songs from Unapologetic, Talk That Talk, Loud and Rated R. She also tackled her breakout, "Umbrella," and did a medley of vocal features from her tracks with Eminem, T.I., Jay Z and Kanye West.
You can watch the entire set in the video above, and if you're even a casual RiRi fan, you should — hell, if you're a fan of Canadian rock band Rush, its worth it for the backing band's bombastic "Tom Sawyer" moment around the 10:50 mark. The full set list is below, and so are a couple of Rihanna's best Instagram posts from the weekend.
