OutKast’s “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below” won two awards, including R&B/soul or rap album of the year, to lead the winners at Saturday’s 18th annual Soul Train Music Awards.
The Atlanta duo, who won the Grammy last month for best album of the year, also scored the Michael Jackson Award for best R&B/soul or rap music video for “Hey Ya!”
The awards, named after the long-running television show, honor recording artists in R&B, hip-hop, rap and gospel music. They were held at the International Cultural Center and televised live via syndication.
OutKast was the lone multiple-winner at the ceremony hosted by Alicia Keys and producer/songwriter Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds.
Soul crooner Luther Vandross was the night’s sentimental choice, winning best R&B/soul single, male for his “Dance With My Father.”
Vandross, recovering from a debilitating stroke, continued a victory streak that saw him take home four Grammy Awards and four NAACP Image Awards at ceremonies in the past two months.
