R&B superstar Usher has been chosen to perform at the 2024 Super Bowl half-time show. The singer, known for hits like “Yeah!”, “Love in This Club”, and “Confessions”, will take the stage to sing fan favorites like “U Remind Me” and “Burn”. Usher was selected by Jay-Z, whose company Roc Nation produces the performance.
Jay-Z has described Usher as the ultimate artist and showman, praising his flawless singing, exceptional choreography and ability to bare his soul. Usher has expressed his excitement about the half-time show, calling it the “honor of a lifetime” and stating that it has been on his “bucket list” for years. He promises to bring the world a show unlike anything else they’ve seen from him before and thanked his fans and everyone who made the opportunity happen.
Despite being a non-paying gig, the Super Bowl half-time show is an incredibly expensive undertaking. Performers may not receive a check, but they are almost guaranteed to experience a healthy increase in record sales and streaming figures. In Usher’s case, this means that his new album COMING HOME is about to reach a whole lot of listeners, translating to a very nice payday after all.
