It's approaching the end of Rihanna's Halftime Show set.
She's already performed Only Girl in the World, SOS, Umbrella, Please Don't Stop the Music.
The instrumental for Pon De Replay comes blaring throughout the stadium. Rihanna steps out onto the stage and utters the iconic lyrics, "It goes one-by-one, even two-by-two." Suddenly, the music stops. The stadium plunges into darkness. But still, we keep hearing, "It goes one-by-one, even two-by-two." It repeats several more times, but in those echoes, the lyrics have subtly shifted to, "One-by-one, then two-by-two." And subtly, the person saying those words has changed.
A figure slowly rises from the stadium floor. It's Lisa. Then Jisoo, followed by Rosé, and finally by Jennie. Imagine 2NE1's reunion moment at the MAMAs but at the freaking Halftime Show:
Then Rihanna hops back on stage, the music shifts to Pink Venom, and she does the full "this that pink venom, this that pink venom (get 'em, get 'em, get 'em)" choreography with BLACKPINK.
