New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Travis Scott will join Maroon 5
on stage when the band headlines the SUPER BOWL halftime show.
NFL and Pepsi have not officially announced or commented on Maroon 5
headlining the show, even though multiple sources have confirmed it.
This will be Scott's most high-profile performance to date. This follows his album, Astroworld, debut at number one.
Sources previously told that Rihanna
turned down headlining the SUPER BOWL halftime show due to the controversy surrounding NFL players who kneel on the field during the national anthem to protest racial inequality and police brutality.
"Rihanna was the front runner for next year's SUPER BOWL halftime show," a source told in October. "CBS and the NFL reached out to Rihanna
first, who, after thinking about the offer, decided to pass due to the NFL and the situation regarding players kneeling."
When Maroon 5
frontman Adam Levine
was asked about performing at next year's Super Bowl, he told Variety, "I'm still formulating a lot of things."
