Erykah Badu Will Host Soul Train Awards Again

Last year, the spaced-out soul-music queen Erykah Badu hosted the R&B-centric Soul Train Awards, and she was just awesome in the role, clowning Iggy Azalea and presiding over the BET Hip-Hop Awards parody Soul Cypher. So it’s cool to learn that Badu will return to the role this year. The Soul Train Awards have just announced their nominations, which predictably have Drake and Beyoncé leading the pack. And they’ve also announced that Badu will once again host; I hope she lets G-Eazy have it this year. The show will tape 11/6 at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, and it’ll air 11/27 on Centric and BET.
