Travis Scott faced backlash after he agreed to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show.

Six-time Grammy nominee Travis Scott and six-time Grammy victor Big Boi, the latter of whom calls Atlanta home, will add a hip-hop tinge to Maroon 5's inoffensive pop.

Levine previously spoke only in hypothetical terms - joking that "whoever is lucky enough to get that gig probably is gonna crush it" - when Ellen DeGeneres asked him about the Super Bowl during an appearance on her show in November.

Maroon 5 is a three-time Grammy Award-winning pop group.

Travis' participation has sparked controversy following the NFL's treatment of Colin Kaepernick. "CBS and the National Football League reached out to Rihanna first, who, after thinking about the offer, chose to pass due to the National Football League and the situation regarding players kneeling".

Sen. Coons: Trump's 'Closeness' to Putin Is 'Alarming'
President Trump has denied keeping details of his meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin from his own administration. "That comes back to the question, again, of why the president wanted to do this?" she asked.

"We are thrilled to hear about this announcement and excited to partner with Travis Scott to close prison doors and open doors of opportunities for all", the tweet read. But he, Maroon 5 and Big Boi are all affiliated with the Irving Azoff-helmed Full Stop Management, which apparently carried the day.

Despite the agreement, Scott's performance was received with its fair share of negativity, including from Black Panther's Michael B. Jordan, who told TMZ that his performance goes against what the rapper stands for.

"I think he should do what a lot of other major artists have done: say 'I'm not going to participate.' You can't fight against Jim Crow and then go sit in the back of the bus", the 64-year-old activist added.

This year's Super Bowl will be broadcast from Mercedes-Benz Stadium it Atlanta by CBS on February 3.

Some of the biggest names in music and entertainment have performed at Super Bowl halftime shows over the years, including Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen just to name a few.
