Last night, several R&B faves appeared on this year’s Soul Train Awards.
Notably absent, however, was the night’s biggest winner, Bruno Mars. The pop superstar received awards for Best R&B/Soul Male Artist, Video of the Year, Album/Mixtape of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Dance Performance. And SZA, the super-talented artist who is commanding wide attention, won Best New Artist and Best R&B/Soul Female Artist.
Erykah Badu, R&B/Soul royalty and the award’s host for the year, stole the show, once again. The evening included third annual Lady of Soul honorees SWV, who were honored by singers, Ro James, Jessie J. and Luke James. The ’90s trio also took the stage to perform their hits, “I’m So Into You,” and “Weak.”
