B.o.B hopes to join Bruno Mars on Super Bowl stage

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - B.o.B is happy Bruno Mars is the halftime performer at Super Bowl XLVIII, especially if he gets an invitation to join him onstage.

B.o.B says with a laugh: "I ain't got my phone call yet, but I hope I'll be on there."

Mars and the rapper collaborated on the 2010 No. 1 hit, "Nothin' on You." The song was nominated for multiple Grammy Awards and helped Mars launch his successful solo career, which includes two platinum albums and 10 Top 5 hits.

B.o.B said in an interview Wednesday that he and Mars came up the music ranks together, performing in the studio before the singer became a pop star.

Super Bowl XLVIII will take place Feb. 2 in East Rutherford, N.J.

B.o.B will release his third album, "Underground Luxury," on Dec. 17.
