Hip Hop Fans Not Happy NFL Chose Maroon 5 for Super Bowl Halftime Show in Atlanta

On Wednesday, Variety had the scoop that Maroon 5 is in talks to headline next year's Super Bowl halftime show in Atlanta, Georgia. The band, headlined by Adam Levine, has had several hits since its debut in 2001, including "This Love," "She Will Be Loved," "Animals," "Sunday Morning," "Moves Like Jagger," and "Sugar."

The group is popular and has plenty of material to work with on the coveted stage, but, as many critics noted, the NFL blew it. After all, Atlanta is home to some of the most popular hip hop artists of our time.

Maroon 5 is the headliner, but it does have the option to share the stage with any of the above artists. Super Bowl LIII will take place in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 3, 2019.
