With the new mom’s endless number of hit songs, we’re anxious to learn which of her tracks will make the cut for the big game. “Crazy in Love”? “Bonnie and Clyde”? “Single Ladies”?
Between her days as the lead singer of Destiny’s Child, her tons of solo smashes and multiple collaborations with hubby Jay-Z, we’re sure to be graced with a varied mix of Queen B’s classics if she does, in fact, rock the Superdome stage.
With the superstar's perfect track record of blowing away live audiences, the only thing left to wonder is which teams will rumble in the ultimate football showdown.
