Published: Tuesday 17th Oct 2017 by Sam

It goes without saying that it’s been an exceptional year for both Solange and Bruno Mars. 

Hence, it’s fitting that the singers lead the pack of talent in the nominations for the 2017 Soul Train Awards.

Solo stands tallest with 7 honors, while Bruno blazes the scene with 6.

Both have achieved gargantuan success with their projects ‘A Set At The Table’ and ’24k Magic’ projects respectively.

Toni Braxton will also be bestowed with the coveted  Don Cornelius Legend Award, while SWV will receive the third annual Lady Of Soul Award.

The prizes are set to be handed out on November 5th at Las Vegas’ Orleans Arena, with the ceremony itself airing on BET on November 26th.

  2. 👧 + ✈ = 💀 October 17, 2017

    Yes Toni and SWV

  3. SMH October 17, 2017

    Gargantuan success? Lmao maybe for Bruno but a bit of a reach for Solange lol. anyway i’m totally here for Toni Braxton & SWV being honored.

  4. Thea October 17, 2017

    Should an artist who is color struck be honored with a Soul Award?

  5. kay for Toni braxton October 17, 2017

    This is totally Awesome!!! For Toni the braxton … well deserved we need Hollywood hall of fame for her too… its annoying how little kids gets it… these days

    • Livi Rolle October 17, 2017

      I agree, all these babies have stars! Just think about it Jennifer Hudson has a star but Toni doesn’t…..Toni Freakin Braxton!

      • Livi Rolle October 23, 2017

        Yes that may be the case in Tamar’s case however that still doesn’t matter because there are a lot artist who flop but that doesn’t mean that the body of work isn’t great.

  6. The Wig Snatcher October 17, 2017

    I thought Solange’s album is “A Seat At The Table” rather than “A Set…”

  7. Jacinta October 17, 2017

    I’m so excited Toni THEE Braxton is finally being honored! Long overdue! #DEADWOOD #LIVINGLEGEND #IHEARTU #TEAMBRAXTON #TB4LIFE

  8. Ocean October 17, 2017

    Bruno’s album was pure gimmick …why do black award shows always feel the need to honour melanin struck artists whilst snubbing our own ….

    So because Drake and Nicki sing on their songs are we now awarding r&b songs the hip-hop titles…

    Wild Thoughts – Dance Performance ??? LESS BE CLEAR THAT THING DJ KHALID WAS DOING IS NOT DANCING

    Beyonce All Night – Video of the Year ??? WHAT….HOLD UP / SORRY NOT SORRY MAKES MORE SENSE

    Mary J Blige didn’t release that version as a single therefor it should be credited to ASAP …AND EVEN THEN …SMH

    Gospel Award noms easily missing one or all …..TASHA LEONARD COBBS …. ERICA CAMPBELL….TINA CANPBELL …JONOTHAN MCREYNOLDS …..

    • Livi Rolle October 17, 2017

      I agree

    • Slick October 17, 2017

      “Gimmick Melanin struck”… STFU Puerto Ricans have a heavy African gene. And they f*** with African Americans/blacks harder than anyone else from the get. You racist ass f***. I love Black people and the ton of great things they contribute to the world, but the “only for blacks” mentality cause they created it is bull s***. F*** off with that s***.

  9. Fancy BISH October 17, 2017

    I’m still sitting at Solange’s table drinking Lemonade and listening to Starboy and 24k Magic!

    • JOHNVIDAL October 17, 2017

      The album I´m listening the most atm is Lust for Life by Lana del rey. This is great for Toni btw. Her voice is liek no other. Unique tone.

      • Fancy BISH October 17, 2017

        Cool, what’s a standout song on the Lana album in your opinion? And yaaaas Miss Toni is still underrated in my opinion even tho she’s sold so many records…listen to That Somebody Was You by Miss Toni…you will get your whole entire life lol

      • JOHNVIDAL October 17, 2017

        “13 beaches” is one no doubt. But it´s her style that you have to like. If you have not liked her music before I doubt you´ll like the new album. I personally love it even though the bish cannot sing live to save her life lol

      • Fancy BISH October 17, 2017

        lol, I respect Lana for what she does tho! Her music has a chill vibe to it…I’ll listen to 13 Beaches on Spotify

      • Slick October 17, 2017

        True. Way overdue.

      • Killian October 17, 2017

        Same here I think that lust for life is slept on the way she sings is everything,I saw you wrote 13 beaches as a stand out track below and I concur

    • JOHNVIDAL October 17, 2017

  10. Livi Rolle October 17, 2017

    • llawrence October 23, 2017

  11. DanYiel Iman October 17, 2017

    That’s awesome 👏🏽 & Toni Braxton living legend!!

  12. Adgg October 17, 2017

    Didn’t Solonge album come out September 2016????

  13. #TeamTinashe Stan (New Single “Faded Love” Ft. Future Comes Out 10/10/17) October 17, 2017

    “Unforgettable” should win Rhythm & Bars.
    How boring of all the nominations btw..

  14. Yonce October 17, 2017

    Congrats to Toni and SWV!!! TLC and Sade should be honored next year.

  15. Fact Checker October 17, 2017

    No Mention of Bryson Tiller who’s also nominated for 6 AWARDS! But hey keep pushing Bruno…
