PEPSI’s Super Bowl Commercial Unleashed / Secret Artist Revealed

pepsi-123

Last week speculation was rife as to which “top recording artist” would star in PEPSI‘s eagerly anticipated Super Bowl 50 commercial.

The drinks giant promised a spectacle staring a major musician in the TV spot, which will air to the 100+ million estimated to tune in on Sunday night.

Well, wonder no more. Because said ad has been poured online by PEPSI.

Find out who stars below…

It’s Janelle Monae!

Titled ‘The Joy of Dance,’ the commercial celebrates music greats past and present.

Per a new press release:

Janelle Monáe joins Pepsi on the journey to one of pop culture’s biggest moments of the year – Super Bowl 50 and the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. The TV spot also follows the journey and “passing of the mic” to Janelle as she puts her own twist on the famous Pepsi “Joy of Cola” jingle.

Congrats, we guess.

Your thoughts?

    Lol! Coldplay is about to be pissed when Bey leaves them in the dust. Watch everyone tune in to watch in waves as soon as people start going crazy over her coming in stage on social media. I still don’t know why Bruno will perform and what he can even contribute.

    A good look for her. I like a few of her songs, but her music is not for me. But I love her album themes tho.

    Yas great move! Unexpected and a very talented one. Love Janelle. The commercial itself was cool too.
    Pepsi and all those drinks are cancer for you guys though. Please learn to eat and drink healthier 🙂
