LONDON - Rap star Cardi B is reportedly set to perform with Meek Mill at an exclusive Super Bowl party.

The 26-year-old rap star previously rejected the chance to play at this year's halftime show in Atlanta, but she will instead perform at the invitation-only Fanatics party on Saturday.

Cardi B - who is also poised to star in a Super Bowl commercial for Pepsi - and Meek will appear in front of a star-studded list of guests, including the likes of Kevin Hart, Jamie Foxx, Shaquille O'Neal and Gucci Mane.

Cardi B and Meek will perform their collaboration On Me, as well as their own individual hits, according to the _New York Post _newspaper's Page Six column.

This year's Super Bowl halftime show is being performed by Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi, with other big-name artists - including Cardi B - having turned down the gig in support of Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback who started the take-a-knee protest movement in response to racial inequality.

A spokesperson for Cardi B previously said: "There [were] talks about it, but she was not particularly interested in participating because of how she feels about Colin Kaepernick and the whole movement."

Meanwhile, Maroon 5 - who have attracted intense criticism for agreeing to play the gig - recently announced that they are marking their performance with a $500,000 charity donation.

The Moves Like Jagger hitmakers joined forces with the NFL and Interscope records to make the hefty contribution to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America - which aims to help children in the US fulfil their potential - ahead of their performance in Atlanta.

Frontman Adam Levine said: "Playing the Super Bowl has been a dream of our band for a long time. We thank the NFL for the opportunity and also to them, along with Interscope Records, for making this donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters, which will have a major impact for children across the country."
