Now that Cardi B reportedly dropped out in support of Colin Kaepernick, Travis Scott has reportedly signed on to join Maroon 5 for the Super Bowl halftime show.
Travis will join M5 during the halftime show in Atlanta on February 3. It’s arguably the biggest gig in music, with historical performances over the years.
It’s a monster move … Travis has the hottest tour going, a huge single with Drake and he’s generating big Grammy buzz.
And, if that’s not enough, we’ve learned his plus one will be the mother of his child (and possibly his wife) and one of the biggest and richest celebs on the planet … Kylie Jenner.
Our industry sources tell us Maroon 5 is also in talks with several other artists about possibly joining the show … including Cardi B and Outkast’s Big Boi.
The Super Bowl halftime show is a BIG opportunity, but it’s a shame the NFL can’t act right so we can enjoy such things.
Update: Meek Mill has responded to the news of Travis’ new gig.
Scott has yet to confirm the report, but if it’s true things are about to go full “Sicko Mode” at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The NFL quickly faced backlash for its decision to have Maroon 5 perform next year’s halftime show. In a city like Atlanta, fans were hoping local icons—Gucci Mane, Usher, T.I., etc—might be taking the stage.
If Big Boi, who makes up one-half of the iconic ATL duo Outkast, is performing, that might calm some of the previous detractors.
