The 2000s nostalgia is going strong these days, and it will soon make its way to the Super Bowl. After a lot of rumors and speculations, the NFL finally announced the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show headliner, and they’ve decided to go with Usher this time around.
The R&B singer, who gave us nine no. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 such as “Yeah!” and “Burn”, said it’s an honor of a lifetime to serve as the halftime show headliner. He announced his headlining spot with a series of funny clips featuring the likes of Kim Kardashian, Deion Sanders, Marshawn Lynch, and Odell Beckham Jr.
Jay-Z, who’s been producing the Super Bowl halftime show with Roc Nation since 2019, described Usher as the ultimate artist and showman and said he’s looking forward to his performance.
“Ever since his debut at the age of 15, he’s been charting his own unique course. Beyond his flawless singing and exceptional choreography, Usher bares his soul. His remarkable journey has propelled him to one of the grandest stages in the world. I can’t wait to see the magic,” said Jay-Z in a statement.
The Super Bowl LVIII is scheduled to take place at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on February 11, 2024, and User is planning to release his new album Coming Home on the same day.
