Rihanna teased her upcoming Super Bowl LVII halftime performance with the release of an Apple Music social media video, as new details about her show emerge.

The video is a reflection of Rihanna’s childhood dreams when she was a young girl growing up in Barbados, and followed through to the big night coming Sunday, which is poised to include an epic performance. Rihanna revealed some behind-the-scenes information during her Apple Music press conference, including the fact that she has gone through 39 different stylists to perfect her look, according to TMZ.

The promotional video is set to Rihanna’s hit song, “Run This Town,” and features three sentences that flash across the scene at the end of the video clip.

“My whole life was shaped on this very road,” is written across the brightly colored screen as a little girl, representing Rihanna as a child, flies her kite. “I was just a little island girl flying kites in the cemetery. But I had big dreams.”

The caption to the video reads, “run this town. @badgalriri @rocnation @nfl @nflonfox #SBLVII #AppleMusicHalftime.”

Rihanna told panel moderator Nadeska Alexis she has been taking charge and making endless tweaks and changes to ensure she is making all the right decisions for the big show. She reportedly said she realizes that Sunday’s performance will have a huge impact on her overall reputation. (RELATED: This Year’s Super Bowl Movie Trailers Are Already Giving Fans A Good Tease)

The famous singer has reportedly admitted to being bossy and particular about the details. She said she had even given particular instructions to her guitar players as to where they are supposed to stand, according to TMZ.

Rihanna said one of her biggest challenges for Sunday’s performance was to find a way to represent her career within the constraints of the 13-minute window she was given, according to TMZ.

Unconfirmed rumors suggest Jay-Z, A$AP Rocky and T.I. may also be making cameo appearances as part of Rihanna’s halftime show performance in Arizona.
