    Miguel – Best R&B/soul Male Artist


    OK who did Miguel sleep with to win that award? Not when Francine Ocean had the better album.

    Congratulations Luke James… Where is that album?.. Saw you in Vancouver last night… Amazing.. I don’t think any male singers can touch you at this time…


  11. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) December 2, 2013

    DEAD at FAKEmar and her ridiculous tears and speech like she won a Grammy….girl, it’s a soul train, same level as a BET award….

  12. cocobutta December 2, 2013

    I guess the SOUL Train awards are the only awards that didn’t slob JT’s knob.

    Nice one Tamar on awards, but that performance outfit, actually I just leave the comment positive cus chileeee lol.

    Very Happy for Robin Thicke because at least one award she recognises that Blurred Lines was a HUGE hit.

    Congrats all

    Nah. Frank Ocean was overrated in 2012 and had no impact in 2013. Miguel had hits and sold more records in 2013 than Frank. Plus urban radio ain’t really checking for Frank like that.

  14. Nicki Minaj December 2, 2013

    I don’t consider Frank Ocean’s album to be R&B/Soul. I don’t know, what do you think? It could be Pop (Michael Jackson). It’s definitely PBR&B (hipster R&B, alternative R&B) and neo soul.

  15. Nicki Minaj December 2, 2013

    channel Orange was better than KD. Maybe it’s cause I’m a tumblr hipster but CO went gold without any Radio help bedsides them playing Thinking Bout You. KD sold 321K. Men Lie, Woman Lie , Numbers Don’t. Neither do the Grammy’s.

  16. How Many Drinks (Miguels Wifey) December 2, 2013

    Yasss Miguel congrats babe. @Lovebird stfu Frank Ocean was overrated and overhyped.

  17. caribbean native December 2, 2013
