“Astroworld” will meet “beerbongs & Bentleys” at the MTV Video Music Awards, as Travis Scott and Post Malone have been added to the performance list for the show on August 20.
Scott will be giving his first solo VMA performance, and he’ll deliver a medley from his new Astroworld album. The Houston rapper celebrated the album’s release Monday by taking over Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California for a listening party, according to E! News. Girlfriend Kylie Jenner joined him to enjoy several rides, and her sister Kendall, as well as Jaden Smith, also attended the party.
Scott named the album after a now-closed theme park in Houston.
Astroworld is expected to sell 450,000 units in its first week and replace Drake’s Scorpion at the top of the Billboard 200 chart.
At the VMAs, Post Malone is nominated for Artist of the Year, and Song of the Year for “rockstar” featuring 21 Savage.
Cardi B leads all artists with ten nominations, followed by The Carters, Beyonce, and JAY-Z, who received eight nominations. Jennifer Lopez will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Radio City Music Hall in New York on Monday, August 20 at 9 p.m.
