Ranging from Cher to Whitney Houston, the Superbowl field has been graced by some of America's most legendary vocalists. The legacy of the American Superbowl has always showcased major artists who are known for belting extremely high notes or having a massive vocal range but does this leave room for Hip Hop artists like Swae Lee? Who is paving the way for Contemporary R&B.

The national anthem is a beloved treasure in America especially on the biggest televised event in the country, Superbowl Sunday. Pink was one of the major contributors who delivered an iconic performance that will be forever engrained in American history. But, the Superbowl still hasn't had many Black singers who have gotten the opportunity to belt out the national anthem on the biggest stage there is, so this leaves artists like Swae Lee dreaming for a better day to come.

Although the programming around the entire Superbowl has featured many Black artists such as Beyonce and Alicia Keys, there has been only a couple of Black men who have been granted the opportunity to sing the nation's most reputable song at the SuperBowl.

Swae Lee has earned himself international recognition from his rap group that goes by the name, Rae Sremmurd. Swae Lee then went on to sing the score for Marvel's, "Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse." His notable achievements are sky-rocketing him to the top of the Rap game and he can easily be considered as one of the few Black-male artists who are capable of singing at the SuperBowl.

The accolades one must have to step foot on the grand football field as a performer must be vast. Artists selected as key-note singers at the sporting event have almost all been nominated or at least won a Grammy for themselves. The Superbowl is a highly-reputable stage so this means the artists that are hand-selected to perform must match that amount of star power just like Beyonce.

The 26-year-old rapper and singer has begun to pave a memorable way for himself as an artist. Swae Lee has been nominated for five Grammy awards after leaving Rae Sremmurd and is one of the younger artists to do so. Maybe in a few years, he will be seen as a major contender for the Superbowl but for now, Demi Lovato is set to perform the national anthem at the 54th Superbowl. The performance is going to be aired on February 2nd, 2020.
