[MUSIC NEWS] Cardi B May Perform During 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show If She Gets Her Own Set

The NFL has been catching heat for recruiting Maroon 5 for the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show in Atlanta, but rap fans will be happy to hear that it’s looking more and more plausible that Cardi B will join the band on stage.

According to TMZ, the NFL is in talks with Cardi B to perform her remix of “Girls Like You” with the pop-rock group for Super Bowl LIII. The only downside is that she wouldn’t have her own stage time, which may keep her from taking up the offer. She reportedly has other opportunities on the table around that time that would allow her to perform solo.

ast week, Billboard reported that the new mom, who just celebrated her one-year wedding anniversary with Offset, was already on the short list to perform at the event, though Travis Scott was also being considered. The NFL won’t confirm or deny the now-widespread rumors. XXL has reached out to Cardi’s publicist for a comment on the matter.

Both RZA and Waka Flocka Flame have spoken out for and against Maroon 5 performing at the Super Bowl, respectively. RZA reasoned, “If you gonna bring somebody like that, in these times, at least you got a guy like Adam Levine, who may bring out Drake for us.” Waka, on the other hand, feels an Atlanta rapper should be given the opportunity— himself included. “You’re coming to the biggest Black state in America,” he explained. “Why wouldn’t you let a Black artist perform and show the world that we’re progressing? That’s not cool.”

“Girls Like You”—which was recently sung by Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown—also made headlines today (Sept. 24) as it finally reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This makes Cardi B the first female rapper ever to have three No. 1 hits.
