"Words cannot describe [how I feel,] it's honestly surreal for me," she said at the time.
"It's a Super Bowl commercial and it's Pepsi and I can never believe these opportunities when they happen. I don't know what it is, but there is something really special about this specific commercial," added the songstress.
As per People Magazine, H.E.R. was even more excited to have collaborated with some big-time music greats, and told the outlet, "Especially the fact that I got to work with Missy for a really iconic song and Timbaland as well. It's surreal. It's amazing."
