“The Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show is one of the most anticipated performances of the year and we are thrilled to welcome The Weeknd to the stage,” said Todd Kaplan, Pepsi’s VP of marketing, in a press release.
The artist told Billboard that he put in $7 million of his own money in order to help the show live up to not only expectations but also his artistic vision.
“We’ve been really focusing on dialing in on the fans at home and making performances a cinematic experience, and we want to do that with the Super Bowl,” said The Weeknd.
It’s estimated that the performance will be 12-13 minutes long.
