This year the Soul Train Awards were hosted by the beautiful Erykah Badu and shot in New Orleans, LA on November 6th, but they aired last night. The Soul Train Awards always recognize the talent in rap, R&B, soul, and hip hop.
During the night there were performances by Dru Hill (Sisqo), Carl Thomas, Brandy, Erykah Badu & DRAM, Indie Arie, Eric Benet, etc. There was even a small tribute paid to Brandy by music legend Babyface, Jhene Aiko, Jazmine Sullivan and others! (Ya’ll know I love some Bran so I was really happy for her!) And honey when Babyface said that her sound is UNMATCHED I was stoked! People try to downplay Brandy a lot but her vocals are astounding and her range is something that many in the industry look up to. She has copycats and ya’ll don’t even know it! Ok! Brandy was also a winner of the Lady Of Soul award.
Remy Ma & Papoose
Others took home awards like Beyonce, Chance The Rapper, Maxwell, Kirk Franklin, Fat Joe/Remy Ma/French Montana, Kanya West & Teyana Taylor, etc. Of course Bey took home several and the old Terror Squad crew actually walked away with two awards.
