Priyanka Chopra will be the featured artist for Thursday Night Kickoff - the pregame show for NFL Network's Thursday Night Football. Priyanka's debut single 'In My City
', featuring Will.I.Am and produced by RedOne (Lady Gaga) and Brian Kennedy, will be the music bed for the intro to Thursday Night Kickoff. Earlier this week, Priyanka shot the spot that will air every Thursday night before and after Thursday Night Football on NFL Network. Thursday Night Kickoff begins September 13th with the 185th meeting between Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers - the most-played rivalry in NFL history.
"It's been an honor working with the NFL Network to create such a fantastic launch for my debut single," said Priyanka. "I'm really thrilled to bring my music and a touch of India to America and its football fans."
"We're excited to showcase Priyanka's talent and worldwide appeal to millions of NFL fans across the United States," said NFL Network Executive Producer Eric Weinberger. "'In My City
' will set the perfect tone for Thursday Night Kickoff which leads into each of the 13 primetime Thursday Night Football games on NFL Network."
The release of the full song and accompanying video for 'In My City
' is expected later this year.
