The 2014 Soul Train Award nominees were announced and controversial R&B singer Chris Brown leads the pack with seven nominations.
Brown, 25, is nominated for Best R&B/Soul Male Artist and his hit “Loyal” was nominated for Song of the Year.
As Dish Nation reported earlier today, Brown made headlines on Monday when he posted an insensitive tweet about the Ebola scare in America saying he thinks it “is a form of population control.”
Beyonce followed closely behind in the STMA noms with six and Pharrell Williams got five.
Nominated for Album of the Year is Michael Jackson, Drake, John Legend and Janelle Monae.
The Soul Train Music Awards will be hosted by daytime talk show queen Wendy Williams on Nov. 7 in Las Vegas, and will air on BET and Centric Nov. 30.
