On Sunday night in Glendale, Arizona, Jay-Z brought his favorite Super Bowl companion along: his daughter Blue Ivy.
He took his daughter to work on Sunday to see the Roc Nation-curated halftime show, which featured the Roc’s own Rihanna. The 11-year-old also attended the Super Bowl with her father in Los Angeles last year and was also there at the big game in Miami in 2020.
Rihanna sang “Run This Town” and “Umbrella” together on Sunday night, and although fans would have wanted Jay to perform with her, he was at least present for the historic set, which marked her first televised music performance in five years since the 2018 Grammy Awards.
The father-daughter outfits were coordinated and all-black, with Jay-Z representing Roc Nation in a black hoodie. In addition to a black zip-up hoodie and black reverse snapback, Blue was sporting a black T-shirt bearing the image of Tupac Shakur.

Jay and Blue were seen mingling with Lil Uzi Vert, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and Hell’s Kitchen chef Gordon Ramsay, according to pictures taken on the field.
As an executive producer of last year’s Super Bowl halftime show, which was chosen as outstanding variety special, Jay-Z earned his first Primetime Emmy (live). Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and 50 Cent all performed at the hip-hop festival. The year before, Jay received a nomination in the same category for his work as an executive producer on The Weeknd’s halftime performance.
