Many Hip Hop fans (and Waka Flocka Flame) were upset when news broke that Maroon 5 has been confirmed as the entertainers for the 2019 NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show in Atlanta this year. Luckily for the Hip Hop fans, Cardi B and Travis Scott are rumored to be on the short list of guests to perform with the band.
As per a Sept. 20 report from Billboard, official guest haven’t been confirmed, but Bardi and La Flame are two of the fans who are allegedly being considered. The NFL fueled the rumor in a comment made in a statement to the publication but left details under wraps.
“It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show,” it reads. “We are continuing to work with Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show.”
Cardi B would make sense considering that she has a song with Maroon 5 which is presently No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Given her connections to Atlanta through her husband, Offset, many have speculated that should Cardi show up, she could bring out Migos also.
Travis Scott, as a Houston local, unquestionably has a down-south association. He’s additionally had a fruitful year since his ASTROWORLD album dropped.
Despite who gets decided for the guest appearances, Cardi and Travis in any event have another thing to bond over. Both respected their first child to the world this year.
