Lil Nas X is tied with Jack Harlow and Kendrick Lamar for the most nominations at the 2022 ‘MTV Video Mu Awards’.

The trio received seven nods, the network announced Tuesday. (26.07.22)

Nas and Harlow share many of their nominations – including ‘Video of the Year’ and ‘Best Collaboration’ – thanks to their work together on ‘INDUSTRY BABY’.

They will also be competing against each other in the ‘Artist of the Year’ category, along with Bad Bunny, Drake, Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles, and Lizzo.

Lamar’s nominations mark his first since 2018 and include ‘Best Hip-Hop’ for ‘N95’, ‘Video for Good’ for ‘The Heart Part 5’ and ‘Best Direction’ for ‘Family Ties.’

Styles and Doja Cat bagged six nominations each, while Drake, Sheeran, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, and the Weekend each got five.

Madonna has made history as the only artist to be nominated in each decade since the award show began.

She was already the most awarded artist in the VMA’s history, with 20 wins, and thanks to ‘Madame X’ now boasts 69 career nominations.

This year’s VMAs will air Sunday, August 28, at 8pm on MTV, the CW, BET, BET Her, CMT, Comedy Central, Logo, MTV2, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, Pop, TVLand, and VH1.
