​Chris Brown leads 2014 Soul Train Awards nominees

Chris Brown is the top nominee for the Soul Train Awards.

The R&B singer may have had a series of legal issues as of late, but he's managed to rack up seven nominations, including best R&B/soul male artist and song of the year for "Loyal" off his hit album "X." Beyonce earned six nominations and Pharrell Williams followed with five.

Williams and Beyonce will be competing against each other for album of the year, along with John Legend, Drake, Janelle Monae and Michael Jackson.

Hosted by Wendy Williams, the Soul Train Awards will be presented on Nov. 7 in Las Vegas.

"As a longtime lover of R&B and hip-hop, I am beyond excited to host this year's Soul Train Awards on Centric," Williams said. "It is an honor to be a part of the biggest night in music and highlight the achievements of both legends and rising talent."

The awards will air on Nov. 30 on Centric and BET. Go here for complete list of nominees.
