We're gonna level with you: Houstonia is running out of shirtless stock photos to run alongside all the Travis Scott news, but here we are again to let you know that, per TMZ, the rapper will join Maroon 5 in the Super Bowl LIII halftime show in Atlanta.

The Missouri City native is the first Houstonian to get the halftime spotlight since Beyoncé's iconic 2016 Formation performance at Super Bowl L. We'll spare you an attempt at a "Sicko Mode" joke, and, to be honest, you don't want to see us try to shoehorn the word stargazing into this post—but after Scott's stellar showing at this year's inaugural Astroworld Fest here in Houston, we're sure it'll be sickening.

Onlookers can breathe easier, too, after the initial fallout from the announcement of Maroon 5 as the big-name artist. After all, Atlanta spawned some of the most explosive black artists of our time—from Usher to Outkast to Future—only to get edged out by Adam Levine's mainstream pop group. Along with Scott, TMZ reports both Cardi B and ATL homer Big Boi (of Outkast fame) are "in talks" to join the festivities.

Super Bowl LIII takes place Sunday, February 3, at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
