Swae Lee is throwing his hat in the ring.
The Rae Sremmurd crooner has expressed his desire to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. While speaking with TMZ, the “Unforgettable” hitmaker made his pitch to the NFL.
“To the NFL and all the highest up people, please, I would like to sing the next one,” said Swae, who performed an impromptu rendition from his car.
Swae will have to wait at least until next year though. Demi Lovato is set to perform “The Star Spangled Banner” at this year’s Super Bowl LIV in Miami on Feb. 2. “I know she gon’ kill it,” added Swae.
Past national anthem performers have included Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Diana Ross, Lady Gaga, and Christina Aguilera.
In the meantime, Swae has been working on his solo album and will perform as part of Rae Sremmurd during the Winter X Games in Aspen on Jan. 24. He will also perform a solo set at Coachella in April. Last year, he dropped a pair of singles, “Sextasy” and “Won’t Be Late” featuring Drake.
