The 2021 BET Soul Train Awards announced all their nominees, and H.E.R. led with eight nominations.
Off her first album Back of My Mind, H.E.R. was nominated for Best R&B/Soul Female Artist, Song Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Video Of The Year, Best Collaboration (twice), and The Ashford and Simpson Songwriter’s Award (twice).
"Wow… I’m honored to be recognized as this year’s 'Lady of Soul' honoree. This is a full circle moment for me because I received the 'Aretha Franklin Entertainer of the Year' Award at the Lady of Soul Awards in 2002. As we commemorate 50 years of Soul Train, I’m proud to be a part of this legacy and to return to the Apollo to celebrate! I’m Super humbled." She said on Instagram.
The Soul Train Awards take place at the end of the month.
