Lil Nas X is tied with Kendrick Lamar and Jack Harlow for the most nominations for the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards. All three artists received seven nods, the network announced today.

Nas and Harlow share many of their nominations thanks to their work together on “Industry Baby,” including Video of the Year and Best Collaboration. But they’ll 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 — his first since 2018 — include Best Hip-Hop, for “N95”; Video for Good, for “The Heart Part 5”; and Best Direction, for “Family Ties.”

Styles and Doja Cat scored six nominations apiece, while Drake, Sheeran, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, and the Weekend each nabbed five. The Queen of Pop herself, Madonna, has also 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 VMA history, with 20 wins, and thanks to Madame X now boasts 69 career nominations.

The 2022 MTV Music Video Awards will air Sunday, Aug. 28, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV, the CW, BET, BET Her, CMT, Comedy Central, Logo, MTV2, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, Pop, TVLand, and VH1. See the full list of nominees below.
