Come Super Bowl Sunday, that’s one song fans can expect not to hear when the R&B superstar takes the stage during halftime. During a pre-game interview with the NFL Network shared Thursday, Feb. 4, The Weeknd revealed he decided against inviting any special guests to join him for the performance.
The reason? Let’s just say this “Starboy” is a lone ranger.
“I’ve been reading a lot of rumors,” The Weeknd remarked, before adding, “I wouldn’t bet on it. There wasn’t any room to fit it into the narrative and the story I was telling in the performance. So yeah, there’s no special guests.”
Fans have theorized that past collaborators like Ariana, Drake, Daft Punk and Kendrick Lamar could join The Weeknd onstage, much like Bad Bunny and J Balvin did during Jennifer Lopez and Shakira‘s groundbreaking Super Bowl set last year.
