Maroon 5 could reportedly have some high-profile company on the halftime stage at Super Bowl 53. 

According to Billboard's Emina Lukarcanin, Cardi B and Travis Scott are "on the short list" of guests who could appear alongside the Adam Levine-led outfit on Feb. 3 in Atlanta. 

Cardi B is featured on Maroon 5's "Girls Like You," which is currently No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.  

Scott, meanwhile, released his highly anticipated album Astroworld on Aug. 3. Scott's third studio album peaked at No. 1 and is currently No. 7 on the Billboard 200 album chart.

The NFL has yet to announce any formal plans for its annual halftime spectacle. 

"It's a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show," the league said in a statement to Variety. "We are continuing to work with [longtime sponsor] Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show."
