The Weeknd, Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars Win Big at Soul Train Awards


CentricThe Weeknd, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars were the big winners at Sunday night’s 2015 Soul Train Awards. The Weeknd nabbed trophies for Best R&B/Soul Male Artist and Album of the Year for Beauty Behind the Madness, while Mark and Bruno snapped up the awards for Song of the Year and Video of the Year for their collaboration, “Uptown Funk.”

Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds received the Legend Award, while Boyz II Men, Fantasia, Brandy, Bobby Brown and Tevin Campbell all participated in a tribute to the iconic producer. Meanwhile, Jill Scott accepted the first-ever Lady of Soul Award at the ceremony. She also took home the award for Best R&B/Soul Female Artist.

The evening was hosted by Erykah Badu, who managed to take a jab at Iggy Azalea during her opening bit. In a fake phone call with Iggy, she told her that what she’s doing is “definitely not rap.”
