2017 Soul Train Awards nominations announced

Solange leads the pack with nods.

Solange is no stranger to award-winning this year after nabbing both a Grammy and BET Centric Award for "Cranes in the Sky," and a Webby for Artist for the Year.

Now she's leading the nominations for BET's just-announced 2017 Soul Train Awards upon receiving seven nods, including the major honors of Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Video of the Year, and Best Female Artist of R&B/Soul.
