Despite losing in a crushing fashion to the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI, that didn't stop Joe Burrow from taking the stage with one of his favorite artists.
While he and his teammates will likely spend the offseason thinking, what if the officials didn't decide to get involved in the fourth quarter? What if we doubled-teamed Aaron Donald on the last play on fourth down? While only a ring could soften the disappointment for Bengals players, Burrow decided to try to forget the game and hit the stage with Kid Cudi at Cincinnati's after-party.
Burrow could be seen in a video that was posted all over social media dancing along to Cudi while he sings along to one of Cudi's songs, "Marijuana."
Cudi, who like Burrow, is an Ohio native, sent a tweet out following his performance, sending nothing but love towards Joe and the rest of the team and congratulated them on a good season.
"Performed at the Bengals after party w Joe and the boyz, Cudi said via his Twitter account. "He made the setlist. All his favorite Cudi jams. We all had some fun tn. Sent them off w a lot of love. Congrats on an epic season fellas!! We back next year!"
The second-year quarterback has made his love for Cudi known in recent interviews, saying he strictly listens to the rapper before games.
“I listen to strictly Kid Cudi pregame," Burrow said following the AFC Championship game. "New York City Rage Fest, ‘Soundtrack 2 My Life,’ ‘ Up Up & Away.’ All that good stuff from old Cudi.”
Burrow recently gifted the rapper his grass-stained jersey he wore in the AFC Championship game. Cudi said he was "so geeked" about receiving the jersey.
So while the Bengals weren't able to get the job done at SoFi Stadium, it must have been pretty sweet for Burrow to dance alongside his favorite musician.
