Drake’s banner year keeps on rolling—he’s up for 12 Soul Train Awards for Views including Album/Mixtape of the Year, Video of the Year and Song of the Year. His closest rival Beyonce netted 8 nominations of her own, riding the crest of Lemonade. Other artists with multiple 2016 nods to their name include Rihanna, Kanye West, Adele, Chance the Rapper, Bryson Tiller and Anderson.Paak.
The news comes just one day after Drake broke Michael Jackson’s American Music Awards record for most nominations in a single year with 13. That record stood for 32 years until Drake’s juggernaut 2016 output rewrote the record books for years to come.
Brandy and Teddy Riley will receive career honors at this year’s Soul Train Awards, hosted by Erykah Badu, airing November 27 on BET.
