Watch: Usher Releases Star-Studded Super Bowl Halftime Show Trailer

Oh my gosh.

The new trailer for Usher's performance at Apple Music's Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show has been released and it'll have you saying, "Yeah!"

The video, which highlights his iconic song featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris, is an homage to his expansive music career and its cultural impact. In fact, this year marks the 30th anniversary of his eponymous debut album and 20th for the song.

The teaser begins with a gospel choir singing the track's famous opening line, "Peace up, A-town down." And the video takes that and rewinds it back as fans are transported two decades to see just how popular the song was after its release.

It weaves together footage of fans over the years, including young girls jumping rope to the song, a marching band's performance, a man playing the flute in a subway station and a group of teens in an orchestra practicing. 

But the trailer, which also features Usher performing in front of thousands at concerts, also spotlights some major celebrities moving and grooving to the song, including LeBron James, J Balvin and BTS' Jungkook.

It'll be an exciting month for the Grammy singer, who will perform in Las Vegas just months after finishing his 100-show residency in the city. And the show, which is being called "30 years in the making," also coincides with the release of his newest album, Coming Home.

The 45-year-old, who previously performed alongside headliner Black Eyed Peas at the sporting event in 2011, shared just how meaningful the opportunity is.

"It's an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list," he said in a September statement to EW. "I can't wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they've seen from me before. Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I'll see you real soon."
