Neither representatives for Maroon 5 nor the National Football League immediately responded to Fox News' request for comment. No word yet if either collaborator will be joining Levine and his bandmates at the Super Bowl.
The NFL reportedly has tabbed Maroon 5 as the featured halftime show performer, and that's not landing well. This follows an early report from Us Weekly, where a source told the publication the "offer has been extended and they've pretty much accepted".
Super Bowl 53 will be held Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, and broadcast by CBS. We'll update this post upon confirmation, or if we hear any other news about this report.
The last band to play the Super Bowl halftime show was Coldplay at Super Bowl 50 in 2016 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. They have some big shoes to fill. "The Voice" coach reportedly told Howard Stern in 2015 that they "actively want to play the Super Bowl". One person even passionately demanded the Super Bowl pick the 1990s band Sublime to preform.
The NFL could have gone bold for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, which boasts a rich hip-hop culture. They've teamed with Kendrick Lamar on "Don't Wanna Know", and with SZA on "What Lovers Do".
Maroon 5 has been tapped to bring its moves like Jagger to next year's Super Bowl, Variety is reporting.
