ATLANTA (AP)- B.o.B is happy that Bruno Mars is the halftime performer at Super Bowl XLVIII, especially if he gets an invite 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 he and Mars came up the music ranks together, performing in 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.
