Will Cardi B Perform at the Super Bowl with Maroon 5? Fans Certainly Hope So
Fans are urging Maroon 5 to bring out Cardi B for the February 3, 2019, show
Maroon 5 is slated to headline the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show and fans are already demanding one specific special cameo.
“Cardi B is in negotiations to perform,” TMZ reported on Monday. “The main issue being discussed is whether or not she gets a solo set.”
A rep for Cardi B did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Twitter users put their full support behind Cardi B’s possible appearance.
“She just got her 3rd #1 song on Billboard, she broke records this year, and has the best female rap album this year… with that kind of success why not?” one user wrote.
Cardi B earned her first hit No. 1 with “Bodak Yellow” in September 2017 when she became the first female rapper since Lauryn Hill to get a solo No. 1. Then, this summer, she got another No. 1 with “I Like It.”
“Cardi B is making chart history, so she should definitely get her own solo set during Maroon 5’s Super Bowl performance,” another user said.
“Can the @SuperBowl please let @iamcardib do a mini set? Maroon 5 don’t get me wrong… but we all thinking it needs some added finesse or something. Cardi would def be that,” a fan wrote.
“I’ve already decided I’m not watching the SuperBowl next year unless Cardi B is the halftime headliner. #teamcardi,” another fan tweeted.
“Cardi B got 3 #1 songs and the Super Bowl in her debut era… Nicki is shaking,” one user tweeted.
“Lol Nicki watching Maroon 5 perform their number 1 song with cardi b at the super bowl is gonna be a great time,” another wrote.
The NFL previously released a statement about the halftime act: “It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show,” it reads. “We are continuing to work with [longtime sponsor] Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show.”
