Drake Continues His Winning Streak, Nabs 12 Soul Train Nominations news

In case you didn’t know, Drake has been leading the pack all 2016. His latest work Views crushed every possible milestone and even earned 13 AMA nominations this week, usurping the King of Pop’s original record of 11. Now, it appears that Drizzy Drake Rogers is ready to run the table at this year’s Soul Train Awards, set to be hosted once again by Erykah Badu.

This year, Drake leads all artists with a dozen nominations, including major categories like Song of the Year, Album of the Year and Music Video of the Year. With a triple platinum album and a billion streams to his credit, it’s easy to see why Views continues to steamroll past the competition.

As for the rest of the gang, Queen Bey is in second with eight nominations. Check out the entire list of nominees below. You can catch Erykah and the entire show Nov. 27 on BET.
