Rihanna Headlines Made in America Festival
Rihanna capped off the first day of the Made in America festival on Saturday (Sept. 3) at Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Shutting down the Rocky Stage, RiRi delivered another rousing performance less than a week after her show-stopping VMA sets.
Bad Gal delivered an ANTI-heavy set, with crowd favorites like “Needed Me,” “Consideration,” “and “Love on the Brain.” And although Drake wasn’t there, RiRi also got fan love for the ever-infectious “Work.”
After the show, Ms. Fenty took to IG to share her appreciation for MIA. “#MadeInAmerica that was so much fuuuunn,” she wrote. “Such a surreal feeling hearing you sing back to me! My family was in the house too! Thanks for an unbelievable night!! @miafest.”
Day 1 also featured performances from Bryson Tiller, Dave East, Jay Electronica, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Jamie xx, DJ Mustard, Justine Skye, Gallant, Manolo Rose, and SZA.
Get ready for Day 2 featuring another star-studded bill, including Coldplay, Chance the Rapper, DJ Khaled, Travis Scott, Tory Lanez, Desiigner, and Lil Yachty, among others.
