Despite 12 nominations, Drake didn’t take home an award at this year’s Soul Train Awards. He was defeated in a few big categories by Beyonce. See the full winners list here.
The Soul Train Music Awards were held on Nov. 6 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, though the show didn’t air until earlier tonight. With the TV broadcast came the unveiling of all of the award winners. The categories included the year’s best in R&B and, of course, soul music, but there were also a handful of hip-hop nominations, as the event, hosted by Erykah Badu, is meant to serve as a celebration of black music. As was the case at last weekend’s American Music Awards, Drake had the most nominations (12) of all artists at the Soul Train Awards. He wasn’t nearly as lucky tonight, though, as he was unable to convert on a single award. Instead, the big winner of the night was Beyonce, whose Lemonade was selected as Album of the Year and whose “Formation” won both Video of the Year as well as Song of the Year.
