Lizzo and Lil Nas X recently received well-deserved Grammy nominations and we want to send a heartfelt congratulations from the TikTok community! TikTok has been a springboard to help artists and their songs to explode in popularity. Songs like Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" and Lizzo's "Truth Hurts" sparked trends on TikTok and then rose to the top of the music charts. To cap off their amazing year, Lizzo and Lil Nas X have been nominated for several 2020 Grammy awards including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Best New Artist.
Lil Nas X takes the old town road to the Grammys
Lil Nas X can now add 6 grammy nominations to what can only be described as the most explosive career that music has seen. In 2019, Lil Nas X went from sleeping on his sister's couch to having the longest running #1 hit on earth. He followed up this success with his debut EP 7 and another hit "Panini." All this while staying humble and giving back to his community. It's no surprise that Nas has received these nominations to cap off a truly amazing year and we couldn't be happier for him.
Lizzo's truth hurts so good
Lizzo leads this year's Grammy list with an astounding eight nominations proving that she is 100% legit! Several Lizzo songs took off on TikTok this year with "Truth Hurts" and "Boys" sparking DNA trends and boy crush confessions. "Truth Hurts" saw such a burst in popularity that it's been nominated for Record of the Year despite being released in 2017. Congratulations Lizzo on capping off an amazing year with these nominations!
