Cardi B is going to the Super Bowl!
The “I Like It” rapper who unarguably had a fantastic 2018 is set to have a great 2019 as it has been confirmed that she is about to join a rarefied group of superstars, including Michael Jackson, Beyonce and Britney Spears to don Pepsi’s red, white and blue for the company’s Super Bowl ad campaign.
According to TMZ, the “Bodak Yellow” hit maker is officially locked as this year’s Pepsi celeb spokesperson and the ad has already been shot and will air during SB 53.
The Pepsi spot is considered the premiere commercial during the big game, which is watched by hundreds of millions and has a long afterlife.
It would be recalled that American supermodel and actress, Cindy Crawford did the honours last year, and her predecessors include music acts like Pink, One Direction, Madonna, Mariah Carey and The Spice Girls.
The Pepsi’s ad is not the only thing Cardi B has going on for her as she is also set to put on a show with Bruno Mars in the days leading up to The Super Bowl, which is expected to be the biggest party of the weekend.
It had been earlier speculated that Cardi B was in talks to join Maroon 5 during the halftime show but negotiations fell apart.
