Lil Wayne has expressed his desire to perform at next year’s Super Bowl halftime show. The famed sports event heads to Wayne’s hometown of New Orleans for its 59th edition and the Young Money founder is eager to take the stage at Caesars Superdome next February. 

“We are praying. We praying. We keeping our fingers crossed. I’m working hard. I’mma make sure this next album and everything I do is killer. I wanna just make it hard for them not to holler at the boy,” Wayne told YG and Stevie on their 4HUNNID podcast. “I could be like RiRi, RiRi came out and performed (her hits) from year to year to year.”

NFL legend and Colorado head coach Deion Sanders also believes Lil Wayne should be the performer at next year’s halftime show in New Orleans.

“@nfl I fully expect @LilTunechi to be apart of the @nflsuperbowl 2025 in New Orleans. Thank u in advance. Much Love, CoachPrime,” Sanders wrote on X.

Lil Wayne previously made his intentions to headline Super Bowl 2025 known during an episode of Apple Music’s Young Money Radio last year.

“Super Bowl in New Orleans [is] coming up too… I was just letting them know [that] I’m from New Orleans… I was born there, so you know, just letting them know. [I’m] not sure that they knew that I am from New Orleans,” said Wayne.

He also hinted in a previous interview with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks that no one would be joining him on stage if he gets the opportunity.

“Going to the Super Bowl before and watching the halftime show and wishing, when you see the artist, you’re like, they could’ve sung the song that I was featured on. I’m featured on everybody’s song. You could’ve brought me out!”

“Please do not feel disrespected if you are an artist from New Orleans or an artist tied to me in any kind of way in the music [industry], but know that’s my moment,” he said. “I earned that moment. So I’m not bringing anyone. I’m singing all the hooks that you made, that you wrote, I’m singing them. Bobby Valentino, all y’all, Im singing them, sorry. I am so sorry.”

This year’s show was headlined by R&B legend Usher, who dazzled the Allegiant Stadium crowd with a medley of his biggest songs, including ”Caught Up,” “U Don’t Have To Call,” “Confessions Part II,” “Burn” and “Yeah.”
