Jay-Z Reveals Why He’s Yet To Headline The Super Bowl 

Must Read

JayZ is one of the biggest names in music and has headlined several concerts and shows worldwide except for the Super Bowl. The Hip-Hop mogul has helped produce the iconic show since Roc Nation partnered with the National Football League in 2019, and his creative vision has led to Emmy-winning performances by Dr. Dre and Rihanna

However, the question of whether he will ever headline the show himself remains a hot topic. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight during a red-carpet interview at The Book of Clarence movie premiere on Friday (January 5), Hov shared his perspective, stating, “I thought it would be too selfish to pick myself. Maybe one year. Maybe.”

The Roc Nation founder has a history of declining Super Bowl offers in the past, notably in 2021 when the NFL proposed a performance contingent on bringing Rihanna and Kanye West for their hit collaboration “Run This Town.”

“Of course I would have,” Jay-Z explained to The New York Times in 2021. “But I said, ‘No, you get me.’ That is not how you go about it, telling someone that they’re going to do the halftime show contingent on who they bring. I said forget it. It was a principle thing.”

However, with Roc Nation firmly established as the halftime show’s curator, a solo Jay-Z performance might feel more natural in the future.   For now, the focus remains on Usher’s upcoming performance at the Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas. Jay-Z expressed his confidence, stating, “He’s one of the greatest performers that we’ve seen in our time. I think he’ll take his rightful place.”
