The Soul Train Music Awards Live stream is an annual music awards show which previously aired in national broadcast syndication, and honors the best in African-American / Captivating moments from 2021 Soul Train Music Awards

H.E.R. leads the 2021 Soul Train Awards nominations with eight nods. Jazmine Sullivan and Chris Brown follow with six nominations each.

Wizkid and Tems are next in line with five nods each, followed by Blxst with four. Silk Sonic, Doja Cat, and Yung Bleu each have three nods.

H.E.R., Sullivan and Wizkid are each nominated for three marquee awards – song, album and video of the year. Silk Sonic, the duo comprised of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, are nominated for both song and video of the year for “Leave the Door Open,” a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

 

The Soul Train Awards, which recognizes the best in soul and R&B, will be taped at the legendary Apollo theater in Harlem on Nov. 20. It will premiere on Sunday, Nov. 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on BET and BET Her. As previously announced, Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold will co-host the show for the fourth consecutive year.

The show will be special on two counts. This will mark the first time the show has been taped at the Apollo (or in New York, for that matter). It will also honor the 50th anniversary of Soul Train, which made its debut in October 1971.

Maxwell will receive the Legend award, which has gone in recent years to Babyface (2015), Teddy Riley (2016), Toni Braxton (2017), Erykah Badu (2018) and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (2019).

“It’s an honor to be presented with the Legend award by a community that’s been growing with me throughout my career,” Maxwell said in a statement. “I’m so grateful to be sharing this moment with everyone and returning to the Apollo for an evening of excellence.”

 

Ashanti will be the recipient of the Lady of Soul honor, won in recent years by Jill Scott (2015), Brandy (2016), SWV (2017), Faith Evans (2018), Yolanda Adams (2019) and Monica (2020).

“I’m honored to be recognized as this year’s Lady of Soul honoree,” Ashanti said. “This is a full circle moment for me because I received the Aretha Franklin entertainer of the year award at the Lady of Soul Awards in 2002. As we commemorate 50 years of Soul Train, I’m proud to be a part of this legacy and to return to the Apollo to celebrate.”

BET Soul plans to dedicate a full hour to music videos by Maxwell and Ashanti, starting Wednesday (Nov. 3) at 10 a.m. ET. Check local listings.

Connie Orlando, EVP, specials, music programming & music strategy, will oversee the show, with Jamal Noisette VP, specials, music programming & music strategy, set to co-executive produce for BET. Jesse Collins Entertainment’s Jesse Collins and Jeannae Rouzan–Clay will serve as executive producers.
