Will Cardi B Join Maroon 5 As a Special Guest During Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show?


We like it like that! Cardi B may be a special guest during Maroon 5’s Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, multiple sources tell Us Weekly.

“She is definitely being considered, but it’s obviously way too early to say for sure,” one insider says, noting that “anything could happen or change” by the time the February 3, 2019, game rolls around.

A second source echoes that it “will probably happen,” while a third insider tells Us, “Pepsi, the NFL and Cardi are all interested in her performing more than just her ‘Girls Like You’ verse.”

According to Billboard, which was first to report the Cardi rumors, fellow rapper Travis Scott is also “on the short list” of possible guests.

Cardi, 25, hopped on a remix of Maroon 5’s song “Girls Like You” earlier this year. The collaboration reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it her sixth Top 10 single. The music video, which featured cameos from dozens of female stars including Ellen DeGeneres and Jennifer Lopez, has racked up more than 890 million views on YouTube since its premiere in May.
