This year’s Soul Train Awards was one for the books! The throwback R&B performances made us all remember one of the greatest eras in music.  The details, even down to the dancers backstage in the corridor, were all on point. There wasn’t a time that we didn’t reminisce or feel family reunion vibes (thank you R. Kelly). A huge surprise was the soul cypher. Cyphers are usually reserved for the hottest rappers with crazy flows but this one was full of scatting and nothing but pure soul melodies and lyrics from the great K-Ci Hailey, Eddie Levert, Lalah Hathaway and Chrisette Michele with Erykah Badu on the 1s and 2s.
