Super Bowl 2022 could host the greatest halftime show ever after living legend Dr. Dre was announced as the headliner. While it may be difficult to surpass Bruce Springsteen, Beyonce and Prince, if one man can do it, it’s Andre Young. The man responsible for NWA and two of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time, Chronic people And 2001will be joined by rap royalty during his performance.
Protege Eminem, modern-day great Kendrick Lamar, ’90s icon Snoop Dogg and Mary J. Blige, one of the best female vocalists of the past 30 years, will also be featured on the show. Between them, the artists have been awarded 43 Grammy Awards and had 22 albums top the Billboard 200. Not bad.
The halftime show was personal for Dre, with the rapper getting the opportunity to perform in his old neighborhood, with Super Bowl LVI being held at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and to perform in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,” said Dr. Dre. “I am grateful to Jay-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in an unforgettable cultural moment.”
Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show will take place on February 13, 2022.
