For the second year in a row, Louisville native Jack Harlow has been nominated for a Grammy, this time for his guest spot on Lil Nas X’s song “Industry Baby.”
The song — which also reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 — is nominated for Best Melodic Rap Performance, which is for “a solo or collaborative performance containing both elements of R&B melodies and Rap.”
“Industry Baby,” a magnetic hip-hop anthem from Lil Nas X’s debut album Montero, was produced by Kayne West and Take A Daytrip. Harlow’s verse is a middle finger to Internet trolls.
