Robert: Big Boi and Travis Scott to join Maroon 5 at Super Bowl Halftime Show

After months of rumours and speculation, Maroon 5 have their collaborators for this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. Travis Scott and and OutKast’s Big Boi have officially signed on to perform alongside Adam Levine and the boys.

Scott’s involvement, however, is on a conditional basis. Reports state that he agreed to perform only if the NFL made a donation to a social justice cause. Scott and the NFL will be making a $500,000 donation to the Dream Corps, an organization founded by Van Jones to support social justice efforts. “I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believed in,” Scott shared in a statement. “I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”

Scott’s demand, as well as the reason rumoured artists Jay-Z, Rihanna and Cardi B refused offers for the gig, comes after the NFL was heavily criticized for their treatment of activist and quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Super Bowl LIII takes place on Sunday, February 3rd.
