Rihanna dazzled the crowd on the first night of the 2016 Budweiser Made In America Festival in Philadelphia on Saturday night (Sept. 3). The 28-year-old pop superstar delivered a 90-minute set full of dancing, music and for a brief moment some political talk.
The Barbadian beauty looked fabulously fierce in her mustard-colored leather chaps and olive green jumpsuit that revealed her perky backside. According to Philly.com, over 46,000 people converged onto the Rocky Stage to watch RiRi perform.
Rihanna kicked off her set with the piano-driven ballad “Stay” and then segued into to her 2010 tune, “Love the Way You Lie.” She did perform several tracks from her latest release Anti, including “Work,” “Kiss It Better” and “Desperado.”
But Rihanna didn’t forget to perform her past chart-topping hits. Midway through her set, she told the crowd to get ready to dance as he presented a club-infused medley of “Take Care,” “We Found Love” and “Where Have You Been.” Then the crowd went bananas when she performed “Needed Me,” a fan-favorite track off Anti.
After performing her soaring ballad “Diamonds,” Rihanna took a moment to urge the audience to register to vote. The singer revealed to the crowd that she couldn’t vote because she wasn’t born in the U.S. She encouraged her fans to stay informed and exercise their right to vote. “The power is in your hands,” she said.
Overall, Rihanna rocked the Made In America festival stage and left no doubt as to why she was recently honored with Video Vanguard Award at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.
