The 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show might be months away, but Snoop Dogg, one of the headliners of the historical event, already has plans on how his performance would go.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the rap icon gave an insight into his creative process for the performance and opened up about what song he might perform on the big day.
The 49-year-old shared that his 1994 hit track, “Gin and Juice,” is on the list of songs he would love to perform at the Super Bowl. On whether fans would hear the classic rap single, Snoop Dogg said,
You might, man, depending on how they feel. I know I feel that I want it but I gotta wait for their orders and instructions, so we’ll be on point … whenever we get the information.
The rapper also discussed how he and his other co-performers are gearing up for the championship game. He shared that they have spoken about creative input and what they want the day to look and feel like.
There are also discussions about the choice of songs to be performed, but the artists haven’t decided on the setlist yet.
