BET announced that the ladies of legendary group, Xscape, will received the ‘Lady of Soul’ honor at “Soul Train Awards” 2022.
"Kandi” Burruss-Tucker, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, Tamika Scott and LaTocha Scott will collectively receive the award, making them the second group in history to win after SWV. The Atlanta based group emerged in the 90s with hits such as "Understanding", "Just Kickin' It", and "Who Can I Run To".
“Xscape is one of the most notable R&B supergroups of all time. Their powerful vocal harmonies laid the foundation for ‘90s R&B and some of today’s chart-topping hits,” said Connie Orlando, EVP Specials, Music Programming & Music Strategy. Their sound is undeniably unique and masterful. We look forward to honoring these multi-talented artists collectively on R&B’s biggest stage, Soul Train Awards.”
Discovered by Jermaine Dupri in 1992, Xscape quickly amassed success in the late 90s and 2000s. They released three certified platinum studio albums with tracks that ranked high on the Billboard charts. After the release of Traces of My Lipstick, the group took a hiatus to pursue solo endeavors and eventually reformed in 2017.
“Given how important Soul Train is to all of us, we’re so thankful to be honored with the ‘Lady of Soul’ Award this year,” Xscape said in a statement. “It’s going to be an amazing night, and we can’t wait to see you all there.”
The 2022 Soul Train Music Awards is taking place on November 13, 2022, to recognize the best in soul, R&B and Hip-Hop music. The ceremony is airing on BET, BET Her, VH1 and MTV2, with comedian and writer Deon Cole hosting the ceremony.
