Rihanna may not be interested in paying to play this year’s NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show, but she has no problem lending her voicing to help kick off Thursday Night Football.
The new open will no longer ask, “Are you ready for some football?!” but “Who will run this town?!”
Along with Rihanna’s voice — Jay Z and ‘Ye unfortunately didn’t make the cut — the theme will also feature narration from House of Lies star Don Cheadle, who will help set-up each Thursday night rivalry.
