The 2015 ‘Soul Train’ Winners Announced!

Posted Nov 30, 2015

The 2015 Soul Train Awards went down last night, and right from Erykah Badu’s opening monologue we knew we were in for a special night. We got two very excellent medley performances from a couple of the best songwriters in the R&B game (Babyface and R. Kelly), which featured the likes of Brandy,Fantasia and Boyz II Men.

The big winners were The Weeknd (who took home “album of the Year” and “Best R&B/Soul Male Artist,” as well as Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars for “Uptown Funk” (earning “Video of the Year” and “Song of the Year”). To the horror of the Bey Hive, Silento beat out Beyonce for best dance performance. Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” won the award for “Rap Song of the Year”.
