Beyonce is not the only big name headlining the Super Bowl in February.

Alicia Keys will also be performing for the NFL championship game on Feb. 3 in New Orleans, the Associated Press reported on Friday.

The 12-time Grammy winner released her fifth studio album, "Girl on Fire," in November of last year, and it debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart.

At previous Super Bowls, notable performers of the national anthem included Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, and Mariah Carey.

Just last week, it was also announced that Beyoncé, who is the halftime performer, will be joined by her Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

The band went on a hiatus in 2002 before collaborating again in 2004 for their fourth album, "Destiny Fulfilled." Each has pursued solo careers and gone on to become extremely successful.

But now Destiny’s Child will reunite once again for the Super Bowl in New Orleans, and Rowland and Williams are expected to join Beyonce midway through her performance. They will perform medley’s of their hits, in addition to their newest single since 2004, “Nuclear.” 

On Jan. 10, Beyonce announced on her official website that Destiny’s Child will be releasing another album, which is a compilation of their greatest love songs, along with this new song.

This major news comes after it has been confirmed that Beyonce will have new music debuting this year.

"She's got her stuff going. She took the summer to start recording, and now she's in a place where she's ready to start gearing up to reveal her plan. She's already gearing up to get ready to put stuff out,” the Dream said in a statement.
