The Super Bowl is one of the events that provoke the most expectation in American football fans in the United States, as it generates millions of dollars, breaks audience records, and mobilizes millions of people, not only for the game in question but also for the renowned halftime show, in which world-class artists have performed throughout the more than 50 editions.

Presentations such as those of Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, or Coldplay have marked a before and after in the way people conceive and perceive the event, and have made the show part-time show catch the attention of much of the world.

In the edition of next Sunday, February 13, the singers who will be part of this year's Super Bowl have already been made official. Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar will be the stars in a day that promises to be historic.

Dr. Dre

This rapper and producer is one of the most recognized and respected in the musical genre he performs. His forte is gangster rap. With almost 40 years of career, Dr. Dre founded Aftermath, a label that at the time was created to recruit young rappers with a lot of potentials; and it is no coincidence that all the artists who will participate in this year's Super Bowl halftime show belong to it.

Snoop Dog

Snoop Dog is considered one of the most successful artists in hip hop and one of Dr. Dre's best friends, with whom he has collaborated several times. But not everything has been good in the life of this artist, since in his youth he had problems with drugs. He was arrested on more than one occasion, and this is what he seeks to capture in all his lyrics.

Eminem

Direct lyrics and complex rhymes, those attributes characterize Eminem, noted by critics as one of the most successful rappers in history. To contextualize, his third studio album, "The Marshall Mathers LP" released at the beginning of the century, became the best-selling album in the history of hip hop. As if that were not enough, Eminem has had sales records, with more than 100 million albums sold worldwide. A year ago he was chosen by the prestigious Rolling Stone magazine as one of the 100 best artists in musical history.

Mary J. Blige

The singer and actress Mary J. Blige achieved great popularity in the 1980s and in the 1990s she established herself when she positioned her album “Share my Word” at number one on the Billboard list. It will be the second participation of the artist in this great event. His first appearance was in 2001 when he was part of the Aerosmith, Britney Spears, Nelly, and NSYNC show. Heading into the performance, there's a good chance she'll perform "Family Affair," the critically acclaimed 2001 hit that was produced by Dr. Dre.

Kendrick Lamar

Born in Compton, a city in Los Angeles County, Kendrick Lamar's lyrics are very difficult to analyze and digest, but what is clear is that he seeks to highlight his African roots and the historical abuse suffered by thousands of African Americans in the United States. She is an activist and frequently calls for justice for the rights of racial minorities. It should be noted that he is the youngest of the group that will perform this Sunday (34 years old) and one of the most listened to rappers on the Spotify music platform, with more than 31 million monthly listeners.
