Soul Train Awards 2023: Top Nominees Include Usher, SZA and Summer Walker

It’s time to celebrate the best in Soul, R&B, and Hip Hop at the 2023 Soul Train Awards, presented by BET.

This year, the show is spicing things up by turning into a fantastic Soulful Party right in Hollywood at a new location in Los Angeles, CA.

Leading the way with nine nominations each are Summer Walker, SZA, and Usher, creating a historic three-way tie. They’re nominated for ‘Best R&B/Soul Female Artist,’ ‘Album of the Year,’ ‘Song of the Year,’ and more.

But the excitement doesn’t stop there. 21 Savage follows closely with eight nominations, and Coco Jones and Victoria Monét each have six nods. Burna Boy, Chris Brown, Janelle Monáe, and October London all have four nominations.

The “Soul Train Awards” always bring us electrifying performances, special moments, and appearances by bright stars in Black culture and entertainment. The event is all about celebrating the remarkable influence of Soul Train on music and dance.

The show is led by Connie Orlando and her team, with Jesse Collins, CEO of Jesse Collins Entertainment, as the Executive Producer.

See below for a complete list of nominees for “Soul Train Awards” 2023.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for November 26 at 8 PM ET/PT, when the “Soul Train Awards” 2023 will air on BET and BET Her.

It’s going to be a night full of soulful fun!
