Music news in February was dominated by chatter around Rihanna‘s Super Bowl Halftime Show, her first live performance close to four years. Providing a solo performance and back only by her dancers, the 35-year-old CEO began the performance by revealing she’s pregnant with her second child.
Meanwhile, the charts were dominated by SZA‘s SOS album, which stayed sitting atop or near the top of the Billboard 200 album chart all month long. Whe SOS claimed a ninth nonconsecutive week at No. 1 on the February 25th chart, it was the most weeks atop the list for an album by a woman in close to seven years.
