New York: Jennifer Lopez’s two-decade music career will be honoured at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.

The network announced on Tuesday that Lopez will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award on August 20 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Lopez, who last performed at the VMAs in 2001, will also perform at the show.

The Bronx-bred performer has released multiple hits and memorable, dance-heavy music videos since the late 1990s, including If You Had My Love, Waiting for Tonight, I’m Real and Jenny From the Block.

Past recipients of the Vanguard award include Madonna, Guns N’ Roses and Beyonce.

Cardi B is the leading nominee with 10. Lopez earned two nods for her Cardi B collaboration, Dinero, which also features DJ Khaled.
