The 2021 Soul Train Awards was a celebration to remember. Not only did we celebrate the legends and current stars in the R&B and soul genre, but we also paid tribute to Soul Train's 50th anniversary.
Hosts Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold brought the laughs as artists such as Ari Lennox and Lucky Daye delivered the show-stopping musical performances. However, the annual musical festivities not only featured star-studded displays of chart-topping talent but it was also a night of huge award wins.
The night saw Grammy-award-winning artists Ashanti take home the 2021 “Lady of Soul” honors and Maxwell accepted the “Living Legends,” but there weren’t the only ones with bragging rights that night. Here’s a look at some of the artists with the most 2021 Soul Train Awards wins.
Bruno Mars & Anderson.Paak aka Silk Sonic with 3 wins
The recently Grammy-nominated soul duo dominated the winner’s circle. Cashing in at a total of three awards, the group took “Song of the Year,” “Video of the Year,” and the “Ashford and Simpson Songwriter” award for the hit single “Leave the Door Open” off the debut album An Evening with Silk Sonic.
Jazmine Sullivan with 2 wins
The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jazmine Sullivan took home two of the biggest and sought-after awards of the night. Taking home the first win, Jazmine snatched the “Best R&B/Soul Female Artist” before returning to the stage to accept the award for “Album of the Year” for her fourth studio project Heux Tales.
Normani, Yung Bleu, and Giveon, with 1 win each
The trio each individually proved why they’re the artist to look out for each taking home a 2021 Soul Train Award trophy for “Best New Artist,” “Best R&B/Soul Male Artist,” and “Best Dance Performance” respectively.
