According to TMZ, Mr. Worldwide is reportedly in talks to share the stage with the Latin superstars, who are headlining the sports event talking place in the rapper’s hometown of Miami, Florida, in 2020. Given the “Por Favor” lyricist's a native to the city and formerly proclaimed himself as Mr. 305, it seemed to fans that it was a no-brainer to invite the star on stage for a cameo spot — and Miami’s top execs evidently couldn’t agree more.
Per the site, sources close to the situation told TMZ that Pitbull’s camp has had “recent talks” with his “On the Floor” collaborator’s reps to seal the deal. Not to mention, seeing as the 54th Super Bowl will be held at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens next year, even the honchos over at Hard Rock Cafe International have co-signed Pitbull as a guest performer.
While nothing’s been confirmed, TMZ indicates that Roc Nation, which is co-producing the halftime show, promises “other surprising acts” will be joining J. Lo and Shakira.
Word of Pitbull’s possible cameo comes just days after the two pop stars were announced as next year’s co-headliners for the big game. "These two remarkable artists are setting a new precedent for what this show can become, and we're confident that this will be an incredible performance for the ages,” Pepsi vice president Todd Kaplan said of the highly-anticipated presentation, which kicks off on February 2.
