With nine Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hits from 18 top 10s, Usher has no shortage of material to pick from when choosing the setlist for Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show. He’ll have his work cut out for him in trimming things down to a mere 13-minute set.
On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith are talking all about the songs we need to hear from Usher on Sunday and what guests he might bring along for the ride. Will he skip “OMG” because he already played it during the Black Eyed Peas’ 2011 halftime show? Are Lil Jon and Ludacris guaranteed to pop up for “Yeah!” and/or “Lovers and Friends”?
Listen below for our full discussion:
Also on the show, we’re chatting about all the winners and performers at this past Sunday’s 2024 Grammy Awards, where Taylor Swift won album of the year and announced her next new album, The Tortured Poets Department. We’ll talk about everything we know so far.
Plus, we have chart news on how Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hiss” debuts at No. 1 on the Hot 100, Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” goes top 10, and a bevy of songs debut in the top 40 from Ice Spice, Morgan Wallen, Nicki Minaj, Justin Timberlake and Tom MacDonald & Ben Shapiro. Plus, Wallen ties Garth Brooks for a longevity record at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, while the Grateful Dead break the record for the most top 40-charting albums with the arrival of its latest release.
