PLATINUM-RECORDING ARTISTS TRAVIS SCOTT AND POST MALONE SET TO PERFORM AT THE 2018 "VMAS" AIRING LIVE ON MONDAY, AUGUST 20 AT 9:00 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY (August 8, 2018) - MTV today announced that Travis Scott and Post Malone will take the stage at the 2018 "VMAs." Scott will debut his first solo performance with a medley of hits from his highly anticipated, chart-topping, recently released album, "Astroworld," and Malone will perform a song from his record-breaking album "Beerbongs & Bentleys," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart. They join previously announced performers Jennifer Lopez - who will also be honored with the "Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award" - Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, and Logic with Ryan Tedder.

The "VMAs" will air live from Radio City Music Hall on Monday, August 20 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT across MTV's global network of channels in more than 180 countries and territories, reaching more than half a billion households around the world.

When artist, producer, songwriter and Cactus Jack Records founder, Travis Scott, hit the scene he forever changed hip-hop and irrevocably impacted culture. Penning and featuring on various cuts for Kanye West's "Cruel Summer" and "Yeezus," Scott first left his mark with 2014's seminal "Owl Pharaoh" and "Days Before Rodeo" mixtapes. "Days Before Rodeo" garnered a platinum plaque and stormed the Top 200 at #3, while notching his first #1 on the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart. In 2016, his second platinum opus "Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight" crashed the Billboard Top 200 and Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart and debuted at #1. "Goosebumps" featuring Kendrick Lamar earned RIAA triple-platinum status, the Young Thug collaboration, "Pick Up The Phone," featuring Quavo, went double-platinum; "Beibs in the Trap" featuring Nav soared to platinum; and "Through the Late Night" featuring Kid Cudi became gold. Everything set the stage for his recently released album, "Astroworld."

Post Malone stirs a mix of genres into his own sonic sound that's both intoxicating and invigorating. His RIAA Platinum certified debut album, "Stoney," led the genre-bending Dallas, TX artist to his first Top 10 Billboard 200 and first #1 R&B/Hip-Hop Album while being the "#1 Debut Hip-Hop Artist of 2016". In 2018, his sophomore album, "Beerbongs & Bentleys," debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #1 and achieved one the year's biggest streaming weeks ever. Additionally, Post charted nine songs in the Top 20 of the Hot 100, notching the most songs in the Top 20 of the Hot 100. Moreover, he also smashed the record for most simultaneous Top 40 Hot 100 hits with 14. As "Beerbongs & Bentleys" returned to #1 for the second consecutive week on the Top 200, his domination shows no sign of slowing down.

The full list of nominees for the 2018 "VMAs" is available here.

Fans can vote for their favorites across 12 VMA categories, including "Video of the Year," "Artist of the Year," "Best Collaboration" and more by visiting vma.mtv.com until Friday, August 10.
