“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.”
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.
Us Weekly broke the news on Wednesday, September 19, that the Adam Levine-fronted pop-rock band has been tapped to grace the stage at the NFL championship game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
“The offer has been extended and they’ve pretty much accepted,” a source revealed.
Us Weekly has reached out to reps for Cardi, Maroon 5 and the NFL for comment.
