In a series of tweets posted Monday, the Grammy-award winner expressed interest in curating the performance for the 2019 game, which will be held in Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz-Stadium

“Yo is it true that the next Super Bowl is in Atlanta?” he asked. Once he received confirmation, he shared a few suggestions with the NFL. 

“@NFL you have the opportunity to celebrate incredible Hip Hop Artist from Atlanta Next year,” he wrote. “Outkast. T.I Gucci, Lil Jon, Jeezy, Jermaine Dupri just to name a few. It would be the best party TV has ever seen!”

How much is he charging for his services? He wants “like a billion,” he joked. “All jokes aside please lets make that happen.”

Gucci Mane, Lil Jon and Jermaine Dupri were excited about the concept. They all retweeted Mars’ original post, which garnered nearly 10,000 retweets and more than 30,000 likes. 

Fans seemed to agree with him, too. Several were particularly thrilled about the rap duo Outkast, responding with GIFs and memes.

Others chimed in with their own ideas. Some wanted to add to Mars’ list of Atlanta artists, with bids for hip-hop heavyweights like Migos and Ludacris.

And a few just wanted to see Bruno take the stage again. He performed as the headliner in 2014 and as Coldplay’s guest alongside Beyonce in 2016.

The NFL hasn’t announced any artists for the Super Bowl LIII yet. The featured musical act is usually revealed around October.
