The Weeknd has shut down any speculation that his Super Bowl LV Halftime Show will feature surprise guests. “I’ve been reading a lot of rumors… I wouldn’t bet on it,” he told sportscaster Kay Adams in a new interview for the NFL Network. “There wasn’t any room to fit it in the narrative, in the story I was telling in the performance. So yeah. There’s no special guests.” Check out the interview clip below.
Many people have speculated whether or not the Weeknd would be joined by any of his previous collaborators on Sunday Night—a list of names that includes Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, SZA, Lil Uzi Vert, and more. The most common rumor was that the Weeknd might be joined by elusive French duo Daft Punk, who worked with the artist on his 2016 LP Starboy.
