Jack Harlow Announces UK Gigs For November 2022
Harlow is currently flying high after being announced as one of the hosts of this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, set to take place this Sunday. The rapper is due to host the ceremony with hip-hop greats LL Cool J and Nicki Minaj. A statement said that the three MCs will announce the show’s star-studded lineup of performers, presenters and winners, “taking a more innovative and unique approach to the traditional ‘host’ gig seen in previous years.
Harlow is also tied for most nominations at the awards this year with eight, including two of the night’s biggest awards: Artist of the Year and Video of the Year, bringing his career-to-date VMAs nominations to a total of 11. He will also make his VMAs solo performance debut — last year, he performed with Lil Nas X on their Hot 100-topping hit Industry Baby.
Past hosts include Doja Cat (2021), actress Keke Palmer (2020), comedian Sebastian Maniscalco (2019) and Katy Perry (2017), among many others.
Previously announced performers include Anitta, Blackpink, J Balvin, Jack Harlow, Lizzo, Måneskin, Marshmello x Khalid, Nicki Minaj and Panic! at the Disco; Kane Brown will headline the Toyota Stage.
Harlow released his latest album, Come Home The Kids Miss You earlier this year. The album features the US Billboard No 1 single, First Class, and Dua Lipa, a song named after the famous singer that Harlow claims to have cleared with her prior to its release. Other artists that feature on the album include Drake, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams and Lil Wayne.
A North American headline tour behind the album is set to begin next month.
