Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar are coming together to perform at this year’s Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show on Feb. 13
Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamarhave united like the Justice League to wreak havoc in this year’s Los Angeles-themed Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show, taking place at LA’s SoFi Stadium on Feb. 13. All five appear in a new trailer fittingly helmed by “Straight Outta Compton” director F. Gary Gray.
The epic teaser, titled The Call, begins by moving between each of the artists and their respective coasts. First, we see Eminem coming face-to-face with his rap persona, Slim Shady, mouthing the words to his hit single “Rap God” and Snoop driving in his hydraulic-enhanced 6-4,bouncing to his Dre-produced song “The Next Episode.” Then Blige gets out of her expensive ride to get her hair and makeup done while her Dre-produced hit “Family Affair” plays in the background. Lamar then rolls up on his bike, penning lyrics for his next album as his song “Humble” is heard. “Rap God” and “Humble” were released under Dre’s Aftermath shingle.
Each artist then gets a call from Dr. Dre to meet up at SoFi. Dre then walks along the beach, where a piano lays in the water. He eventually gathers with the four dispatched artists on a plane tarmac, as Dr. Dre and Tupac Shakur’s Dre-produced “California Love” plays in the background.
“Now that we are just weeks away from the most anticipated Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show performance of all time, we’re bringing fans closer to the magic of what will certainly be a colossal moment in pop culture history,” Todd Kaplan, VP of Marketing at Pepsi said in a statement.
The promo was scored by Adam Blackstone. Gray said in a statement: “Each time I collaborate with Dre, it seems to mark an important moment in entertainment history, from projects like ‘Friday,’ ‘Set It Off,’ ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ to now the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show. As a super fan, I consider it an honor and privilege to authentically build and create this moment with five of the most legendary artists in music history.”
