Mary J. Blige is coming back strong this era. The R&B legend will co-headline the Pepsi Halftime Show at Super Bowl LVI on February 13, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. She will be joined by hip-hop heavyweights Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar.
Blige made a special appearance at Super Bowl XXXV, where Aerosmith and *NSYNC headlined and invited Britney Spears, Nelly, and others to share the Raymond James Stadium stage in Tampa, Florida.
Super Bowl LVI marks the third year since 2019 that JAY-Zâ€™s company Roc Nation partnered with Pepsi and the NFL to book the talent for the biggest event in football.
JAY-Z expressed his excitement for this all-star lineup, stating, â€œOn February 13, 2022, at the Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, CA, in the new SoFi Stadium, Dr. Dre, a musical visionary from Compton, Snoop Dogg, an icon from Long Beach and Kendrick Lamar, a young musical pioneer in his own right, also from Compton, will take center field for a performance of a lifetime.â€
He added, â€œThey will be joined by the lyrical genius, Eminem and the timeless Queen, Mary J. Blige. This is the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. This is history in the making.â€
Blige will release the first single from her untitled 14th studio album sometime in October. After that, she eyes a November release for the follow-up to 2017â€™s Strength of a Woman. She recently was spotted in the lab cooking up new music with London on Da Track.
If new music wasnâ€™t enough, on November 21, Blige is set to return to Starz to reprise her role as Monet Tejada in Power Book II: Ghost.
