Newark mayor Ras J. Baraka shared his excitement about hosting the annual award ceremony again this year through a statement.

"Starting with America's first known composer in 1759, through the jazz explosion in the 1920s, and up to today's full spectrum of genres from hip hop to opera, Newark has long served as America's turntable for harmonic expression. The relevance of the Video Music Awards rising today from the same city that registered the film and video industry's first nitrocellulose patent is not lost on me as Newark continues to sit squarely at the crossroads of motion picture and music," he shared.


Although the organizers have not released the official lineup for this year, several speculations are doing the rounds that K-pop boy bands Stray Kids and Tomorrow X Together (TXT) and BTS member Jungkook will attend the annual award ceremony.
