Social media users expressed their disappointment after reports on Wednesday that Maroon 5 will headline the 2019 Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show.

NY rapper Cardi B and Travis Scott are "this" close to getting confirmation for Super Bowl LIII. At the time, he told Howard Stern that the band "very actively want to play the Super Bowl".

The Atlanta rapper, 32, didn't just come to complain either, he had suggestions as to who the league could've booked instead.

"Excuse me say what!?" rapper and Atlanta native Ludacris wrote in a caption of a photo he posted on Instagram of himself wearing an Atlanta Falcons jersey.

Olympic Team. "I'm looking forward to working with her in this capacity, but we will always be representing the Garnet and Black". She has won gold medals at the 2013 FIBA U19 World Cup, the 2014 FIBA Americas U18 Cup and the 2015 FIBA U19 World Cup.

Waka Flocka Flame suggested Migos or Future as two choices in replacement of Maroon 5.

But it doesn't surprise Waka that the National Football League would overlook the city and its musical legacy.

"You coming to 'the biggest black state in America, ' " he added. "Why won't you let a black artist perform?" Cardi B, who shares the song "Girls Like You" with the band (which now sits at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, followed by her hit "I Like It"), and Travis Scott, whose album Astroworld recently made a major splash. New reports claim the hip-hop stars could pull through for rumored headliners Maroon 5's halftime performance.

Maroon 5 - fronted by Adam Levine with Jesse Carmichael, James Valentine, PJ Morton, Matt Flynn, Sam Farrar and Mickey Madden - is now on tour to promote their 2017 album, "Red Pill Blues".
