TOPLINE Usher will take the stage during the 2024 Super Bowl halftime show in February, the NFL, Apple Music and Roc Nation announced Sunday morning.
The game will take place on February 11, 2024 at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada and will be broadcast on CBS.
Usher will follow in the footsteps of Rihanna, who headlined last year’s show.
NFL music executive Seth Dudowsky called Usher “an icon whose music left an indelible mark on the cultural landscape” in the announcement.
18. That’s the number of top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits Usher has had in his career, including “U Got It Bad” and “Yeah!” featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris, according to Billboard. He also has four number one albums.
Usher is no stranger to the halftime scene. In 2011, he was a guest on the show Black Eyed Peas.
This is the fifth year the NFL has partnered with Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s entertainment company, to host Halftime and the second year Apple Music has participated. Usher has released eight studio albums throughout his 30-year career, the latest being Hard II Love, released in 2016. Usher has been in residence in Las Vegas since last July and recently renewed Stay period until December.
