Travis Scott Told NFL He'd Play Super Bowl Under One Condition

  • It’s official Maroon 5 will headline the Super Bowl halftime show

Rapper Travis Scott confirmed that he will perform during the Super Bowl's Halftime show with Maroon 5. It showed concert footage of the group and included scenes with rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi, who will appear as special guests during the high-profile performance.

Levine previously spoke only in hypothetical terms - joking that "whoever is lucky enough to get that gig probably is gonna crush it" - when Ellen DeGeneres asked him about the Super Bowl during an appearance on her show in November.

This is the first time the three-time Grammy-winning pop band has gotten the plum gig, joining other big time artists including Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, The Who, Katy Perry (who could forget Left Shark?) and Tom Petty. While the group and the National Football League were said to be seeking an Atlanta-based act and had spoken with the booming label and management company Quality Control, which is based in the city and also consults Cardi B, about assisting with the effort, the Texas-born Scott, whose "Astroworld" is one of the top albums of the year, is probably considered a sufficient coup. "I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change", Scott said in a statement.


A growing list of black performers have reportedly refused to join the Super Bowl half time show because of what they feel is the shoddy treatment the league has perpetrated against former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. However, he again stirred some controversy when he performed Minnesota-native Prince's "I Would Die 4 U" with a giant projection of the late artist on a large sheet behind the stage.

This year's Super Bowl will be broadcast from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta by CBS on 3 February.

"I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in".
