Jack Harlow wins 4 MTV Video Music Awards
Harlow won “Song of the Summer” with “First Class” and won three awards with Lil Nas X for “Industry Baby.”
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Rapper Jack Harlow is having a great year and has added more trophies to his collection.
The Louisville native won four MTV Video Music Awards on the Sunday night telecast where he also served as a co-host.
He opened the show by performing his hit single “First Class” in a fake airplane while donning the flight attendant costume. Its first-class celebrities included starlet Chloe Bailey, late-night host Jimmy Fallon and Lil Nas X to name a few.
One of the big surprises of the night was when Harlow brought in Fergie to do a rendition of Glamorous, the song “First Class” takes its catchphrase from.
Needless to say, the crowd was definitely on their feet at the Prudential Center with thunderous applause.
Early in the evening, Harlow won his first Video Music Award with the “Industry Baby” collaboration with Lil Nas X. Neither of them believed they had won the “Best Collaboration” award.
Harlow let Nas have his moment where he said, “and that’s for the champions.”
The couple would also win the trophies for “Best Art Direction” and “Best Visual Effects”.
Harlow picked up a solo win for “First Class” as it was named “Song of the Summer”.
In his acceptance speech, he thanked Fergie for giving him one of the best songs from his childhood.
“First class is me. It’s just who I am,” he said. “I’m hungry, so we’ll keep going.”
He also said it was a huge honor to share co-hosting duties with hip-hop legends LL Cool J and Nicki Minaj.
