MTV released the list of nominees for this year’s Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Tuesday, July 26, and Kentucky native Jack Harlow received seven nominations.

Harlow was nominated with his friend and collaborator Lil Nas X for their music video for "INDUSTRY BABY" in two votable categories, Video Of The Year and Best Collaboration; and in four non-votable categories, Best Direction, Best Art Direction, Best Visual Effects, and Best Choreography. The two were also nominated individually in the Artist Of The Year category.

Kendrick Lamar is the only other artist to receive seven nominations this year; Harry Styles and Doja Cat each received six.

The VMAs will air on MTV on Sunday, August 28, at 8 p.m.
