Over the past few years the NFL has made a decisive move away from rock and roll artists for their annual Super Bowl halftime show. Most recently Canadian artist The Weeknd entertained the fans; Bruno Mars, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, and Beyonce have also performed recently at the annual event.

On September 30, the NFL, Roc Nation, and Pepsi announced the lineup for the Super Bowl halftime show on February 13, 2022 at the new SoFi stadium in Inglewood, California.

This year there will not be a single star performing but five artists will take the stage – Mary J Blige, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar. This will mark the first time that all five artists will share the same stage.

One of the early starts of the Rap music genre, Dr. Dre has been around since the 80’s and helped to launch the careers of fellow performers Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Kendrick Lamar. Dre also has ties with Mary J Blige; he produced her hit song “Family Affair’.

A southern California native, Dre stated that the show is going to be an, “unforgettable cultural moment.”
