Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are perfect for the Miami-hosted Super Bowl LIV. The Latinx superstars are also the result of the work of Roc Nation, as part of its partnership with the National Football League.
Here’s the press release issued by Roc Nation and the NFL:
New York, NY – Today, Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation announced cultural icons Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will perform during the PEPSI SUPER BOWL LIV HALFTIME SHOW on FOX at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020. Pepsi and the NFL collaborated with Roc Nation to bring these two icons together for the first time ever, for what will be an unforgettable performance on the world’s biggest stage.
“Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the Halftime Show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl,” said Lopez. “And now it’s made even more special not only because it’s the NFL’s 100th season, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina. I can’t wait to show what us girls can do on the world’s biggest stage.”
“I’m so honored to be taking on one of the world’s biggest stages in the company of a fellow female artist to represent Latinos and Latinas from the U.S. and all over the world — and to top it off, on my birthday!” said Shakira. “This is a true American dream and we are going to bring the show of a lifetime!”
