The choice of Maroon 5 for the 2019 Super Bowl leaves opens a wide range of options. The band likely will perform renditions of its older pop-rock hits such as “This Love” and “Moves Like Jagger,” but recent collaborations with Cardi B and Kendrick Lamar mean the rappers could make a surprise appearance.
Maroon 5’s song with Cardi B, “I Like It,” was one of the biggest hits of 2018 and “Don’t Wanna Know” with Lamar also was a huge hit.
The halftime show likely will fall in line with past artists who have taken the stage, like Justin Timberlake, Beyonce and Coldplay, all of whom had a variety of acts and singers join them.
Super Bowl 53 is scheduled to take place Feb. 3 at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
