Post Malone Is 'Very Nervous but Excited' to Sing 'America the Beautiful' at the 2024 Super Bowl

The singer and rapper will perform "America the Beautiful" ahead of Sunday's highly anticipated match-up between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs

Post Malone is ready to shake off his nerves at Super Bowl 2024!

Ahead of the big game against the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, the rapper and singer spoke to Apple Music’s Nadeska Alexis about what fans can expect from his pregame performance of "America the Beautiful."

After initially calling the opportunity "nerve-wracking," Malone, 28, then admitted "I'm very nervous" while sitting alongside fellow pregame performers Reba McEntire and Andra Day. "But excited, I'm excited. It's just fun and super epic to be able to go out there and sing a song so many beautiful artists have sang before on this stage."

"I'm just gonna do my best, just do my best, and give it what I got," added the "Better Now" singer. "My dad told me, 'You'll never make everybody happy. So just be yourself and do your best at everything you do.' Do it your way and do it with love."

While this year's Super Bowl marks the first time that Las Vegas will host football's biggest game, it has been a city that has bought the musician luck on prior occasions.

During an appearance on the Call Her Daddy podcast in August 2023, Malone revealed that it is where he and his fiancée, whom he hasn't identified publicly, got engaged.

"I had lost a significant amount of money at the table. We go upstairs and I’m off my rocker hammered and I was like, ‘Hey, you wanna marry me?' I got a ring and all this stuff. And she said, 'No.' She’s like, ‘Ask me tomorrow’ and I was like, 'Alright.' And then I did and I was sober and it was nice," he told host Alex Cooper.
