Jack Harlow is really becoming a fan favorite. His collaboration with Lil Nas X on “Industry Baby” and his latest single “First Class” have him on his way to the top. Prior to his second album, Harlow appeared on Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards to perform a medley of his adult-friendly songs.

Since the KCAs are for the kids, viewers were a little skeptical about Harlow’s performance, especially since his music is quite explicit. The Kentucky native gave an energetic performance of his hits “Nail Tech”, “Industry Baby” and “First Class”. But the KCAs have long been a platform for rising stars to show off their skills. In addition to his performance, Harlow got the iconic Nickelodeon slime treatment.

Tweets circulating around his performance were amused that he was still able to deliver his music to such a young audience. One user tweeted: “The way Jack Harlow had to censor himself so heavily because the kid’s choice prize is literally a *kids* show is so funny to me. Like bro, why would you all pick a rapper who has the most songs be filled with explicit language and/or sexual content.” Another user wrote: “You all think Jack Harlow is going to get the KCAs and be anything but himself. He’s still busy with the kids. It’s not his fault they don’t know the words [laughing emoji] The producers don’t think this one is through [laughing emojis]†

Harlow is gearing up to release his second major label album Come home the kids miss you in May.
