Taylor Swift may soon fulfill her fans’ wildest dreams, headlining next year’s Super Bowl halftime show, according to one report.

The Grammy winner, 32, will play the coveted spot, a trio of sources told Variety Friday.

Swift fans have wanted the “Wildest Dreams” singer to perform on America’s biggest stage for years, but it was long thought that her long-term role as brand ambassador for Coca-Cola jeopardized any chance of the singer playing what was, until recently, a Pepsi-sponsored show.

Pepsi ended its longtime partnership with the NFL in the spring, and Variety’s report Friday comes just hours after the NFL announced at midnight that the halftime show would be sponsored by Apple Music, whose 2015 launch was marked by Swift refusing to release her “1989″ album on the service as long as it withheld musicians’ reimbursements from users’ free trial periods.

The policy quickly changed and Swift released her album on Apple.

Reps for Swift, the NFL, Apple Music and Roc Nation did not immediately respond to the Daily News’ requests for comment.
