Super Bowl 2022: who will sing during the famous half-time?

In February 2022, big names in rap and hip-hop will meet. Five artists who have won 43 Grammy Awards during their careers.

Five legendary voices to succeed The Weeknd who hosted the Super Bowl halftime show last year, just after Jennifer Lopez and Shakira in 2020. California rappers Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar , as well as Mary J. Blige and Eminem will perform at the next Super Bowl, scheduled for Los Angeles in February 2022, the National American Football League (NFL) announced.

This set will play at home since the majority of the artists are old hip-hop legends of the West Coast of the United States, Eminem, comes to him from Detroit, and only Mary J. Blige, the only woman, was born in New York. Los Angeles will host them on February 13, 2022. It had been since 1993 that the final of the American football championship had not taken place in this city.

Between them, the artists have 43 Grammy Awards . The Super Bowl, airing next season on NBC, is the most-watched event of the year on American television, despite an audience declining to 96.4 million viewers in 2021. The decline has not stopped Record advertising revenue of $ 545 million, according to an estimate by the Kantar firm.

Since 2019, the halftime show has been produced by the Roc Nation group, founded by New York rapper and now wealthy businessman Jay-Z. Now a music mogul, Dr. Dre , Snoop Dogg’s old traveling companion, has already produced all the artists who will be on stage with him. In 2019, Jay-Z explained that he wanted to help the NFL overcome the controversy that followed the protest movement launched by former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016, who dropped on one knee to protest against police violence. against African Americans. This gesture cost him the rest of his career.

Next year’s Super Bowl is shaping up to be a night to remember, at least music-wise. Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem are set to headline the 2022 Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show, marking their first time taking the stage together. The big event is set to take place on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA.

The lineup is a noticeable nod to the greater Los Angeles community, which will be hosting its first Super Bowl in 30 years. It was only right that the roster feature hip-hop heavyweights from the area: Dr. Dre and Lamar, who are both from Compton, and Snoop Dogg, who is a Long Beach native. (With Blige and Eminem, they’ll be representing the Bronx and Detroit too.)

“This is the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. This is history in the making,” Jay-Z, whose label, Roc Nation, is in a long-term partnership with the NFL, said in a statement.

To further show their support for L.A., Pepsi and the NFL will also help facilitate the opening of Regional School #1, a magnet high school in South Los Angeles that will join the LA Unified School District next fall. They also intend to collaborate with the school to develop “community-inspired applied learning experiences and industry internships” for the students.

The Super Bowl marks a big return to the public eye for Lamar, who has kept a relatively low profile in recent years, though he reemerged last month for a new collab with Baby Keem, “Family Ties.” Around the same time, he updated fans with a letter on his website announcing that his next album would be his last on Top Dawg Entertainment, his longtime label. “May the Most High continue to use Top Dawg as a vessel for candid creators. As I continue to pursue my life’s calling,” he wrote, per Fader.

Along with his four co-performers, Lamar follows a long list of top-tier Super Bowl headliners, most recently including The Weeknd (2021) and J.Lo and Shakira (2020). The 2022 show will air on both NBC and Telemundo and can be accessed via livestream on Peacock.
