In anticipation of Lady Gaga’s halftime performance at this Sunday’s Superbowl, Billboard reached out to several of music’s most notable figures to ask their favorite and most memorable halftime shows from history. From Migos to The Chainsmokers to Mike Will Made It, the music industry’s most recognizable names chimed in to give their best Superbowl throwbacks just in time for this weekend’s game.
Andra Day, Mario and The Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall said that, in their opinion, the best halftime show ever was performed by the late Michael Jackson during Superbowl XXVII. Even though Jackson was his favorite, Alex Pall said that from now on, Bruno Mars and Beyonce should take over halftime shows.
“We still don’t know how he teleported around the stadium like he did but it was the most awesome thing ever. But since Michael is gone, we need to just let Beyonce and Bruno do every Super Bowl henceforth, no discussion. I’m pretty sure the entire world would get on board with this plan.”
Jeezy was in agreement with Pall, as he cast his vote for Bruno Mars’ Superbowl XLVIII show. “I like that guy, man. We should get in the studio — I have to hit him up.”
Migos’ Quavo said that Janet Jackson’s Superbowl XXXVIII show was the most memorable, while Chase Bryant chose The Rolling Stones and their Superbowl XL performance.
Finally, Mike Will Made It chose Beyonce as his favorite halftime performer, citing her iconic Superbowl 50 showcase.

Poor Usher. Poor Jeremih. Poor Trey Songz. R&B’s workmanlike radio superstars churn out jam after jam, some of them truly transcendent, yet only rarely do they actually transcend. When they do, it’s often by hopping aboard whatever stylistic wave is reigning that year — think of Usher’s electronic dalliances like “OMG” — than by appealing … More »
(AllHipHop News) Mike Will Made-It was likely riding high from Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” being the number one song in the country.
However, the producer of the SremmLife 2 track recently experienced a rough moment on the road.
Mike Will announced he was involved in a hit-and-run accident.
The EarDrummers captain wrote on Instagram:

(AllHipHop News) Rappers Rae Sremmurd have landed a second week at the top of the U.S. pop charts with their ‘Mannequin Challenge’ anthem “Black Beatles.”
The Gucci Mane collaboration, which soundtracks many of the celebrity freeze-offs posted online, keeps The Chainsmokers’ former number one “Closer” pegged to two on the new Billboard Hot 100 countdown, while The Weeknd’s “Starboy” is steady at three.
Ariana Grande’s “Side to Side,” which she performed at the American Music Awards with Nicki Minaj on Sunday night – before landing Artist of the Year honors, jumps into the top five at four, while Twenty One Pilots, who also performed at the AMAs, round out the top five with “Heathens.”
The song “Black Beatles” can credit its popularity to the #MannequinChallenge, where social media users post videos of people freezing in place as “Black Beatles” plays in the background.
The hit single was produced by Mike Will Made It.
(AllHipHop Rumors) It looks like Jay Z certainly has something up his sleeve, and it looks like it’s new music!!!
First Hov was spotted with producer Zaytoven, and yesterday producer Mike Will Made It posted a photo with Jay Z on Instagram with the caption,

We are supposedly getting a Jay Z album in 2017, and it looks like Jay Z is back in the kitchen cookin’!
What sound is Mike Will going to give Jay, we wonder? We aren’t sure what to expect yet, but we know it will be fire.
