Just under a month before hip-hop royalty is set to take the stage at the 2022 Super Bowl halftime show, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar and Dr. Dre appeared in a trailer for the upcoming performance.
The iconic entertainers will perform together for the first time at the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show on Feb. 13 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
On Thursday, officials released a nearly 4-minute preview from “Friday” and “Straight Outta Compton” director F. Gary Gray. Dubbed “The Call,” the trailer featured snips of some of the musicians’ most well-known songs, including “The Next Episode,” “Family Affair” and “HUMBLE.”
“Each time I collaborate with Dre, it seems to mark an important moment in entertainment history,” Gray said Thursday in a statement, noting their work together on “Friday,” “Set It Off” and “Straight Outta Compton.”
“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. It’s been a blast!”
More than 100 million people have tuned in to watch the Super Bowl halftime show in recent years, according to officials with Pepsi, the show’s title sponsor. Past performers include high-profile entertainers Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Prince and Madonna.
