Other nominees include Anderson. Paak, Andra Day, Rihanna, Kanye West, Bilal, Lalah Hathaway and Bryson Tiller, just to name a few. New Jack Swing creator Teddy Riley is set to receive this year's Soul Train Legend Award, while Brandy will be awarded this year's Lady of Soul honor.

As previously reported, Erykah Badu will be returning as this year's host for the Soul Train Awards, which will be taped in Las Vegas at The Orleans Arena on Sunday, November 6th. The newly-reconfigured Soul Train Weekend, which starts on Thursday, November 3rd in Vegas, will also include performances from Jill Scott, Anthony Hamilton, Jazmine Sullivan, Tyrese, Monica, Yuna and Bell Biv DeVoe.
