Usher, Grammy Awards-winning performer, has said, “Yeah!” to headlining the Super Bowl LVIII halftime performance.

According to a Roc Nation and NFL press release sent on Sunday, Usher will perform in Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium during the halftime performance sponsored by Apple Music.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cross a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list.” “I can’t wait to give the world a show unlike anything they’ve ever seen from me,” Usher said in a statement on Sunday, adding, “Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity possible.” “I’ll see you soon.”

The singer has been singing his extensive catalog of R&B tunes as part of his Las Vegas performance series “Usher: My Way, The Residency.” Since debuting in the music industry in 1994 with his self-titled first album, “Usher,” he has sold over 80 million copies worldwide and won eight Grammy Awards.

Among his major singles are “U Got It Bad,” “U Don’t Have to Call,” and “Nice & Slow,” among many more.

“Usher is the consummate artist and performer.” He’s been creating his own distinctive path since his debut at the age of 15. “Usher bares his soul,” Jay-Z said in a statement Sunday, “beyond his flawless singing and exceptional choreography.”

Usher has expressed his thanks and hopes for a historic Super Bowl halftime show in 2024. The 44-year-old said earlier this year that the performance was on his bucket list. That aim has already been achieved.

Moreover, he published an Instagram image with Apple Music on Sunday. The tweet included a video of the first scene from Usher’s 2004 music video, “Confessions, Pt. II.” However, instead of receiving a phone call from a lady with whom he had become pregnant, the musician received a call from Kim Kardashian.

Kardashian tells Usher that she’s “finally gotten the answer to those rumors” and that he’ll be “doing the Super Bowl.”

“You’re using the Apple M.”

Usher previously sang “OMG” with the Black Eyed Peas during the Super Bowl halftime performance in 2011, but this will be his first time headlining.

Rihanna’s halftime act in 2023 became the most-watched halftime show in history. In 2022, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar hosted the Super Bowl LVI halftime concert.

On February 11, 2024, CBS will broadcast the Super Bowl.
