Maroon 5 was able to find someone to play the Super Bowl halftime show with them after all.
Travis Scott will join the “One More Night” group for the big show in Atlanta on Feb. 3, TMZ reports.
It’s a big get for Maroon 5, too, as few artists have had a bigger year than Scott. Kylie Jenner‘s other half, 26, has dominated the charts since his third studio album, “Astroworld,” was released in August.
Just last week it was reported that the Adam Levine-fronted band was struggling to find someone to join them for their Super Bowl LIII halftime show performance, in part because of the NFL’s continued stance against players’ right to protest.
The decision to hand Maroon 5 the headlining gig for what is viewed as music’s biggest performance was also widely criticized, with some, notably Waka Flocka Flame, wondering why an artist from the city’s vibrant and influential hip-hop scene wasn’t chosen instead.
While Scott is a rapper, his selection will only partially assuage critics since he’s from Houston.
