Wu-Tang Clan Join SWV For A Soul Train Tribute That Will Leave You Weak At The Knees (Video)
The 2017 Soul Train Awards aired tonight on BET. Taped at the Orleans theater in Las Vegas, the event was a star-studded affair. Hosted for the third straight time by Erykah Badu, the show featured appearances by BBD, 112, Toni Braxton, Guy, Bilal, Faith Evans and more.
From the start, the show began with a bang, as it kicked off with SWV who performed a medley of their hits. Celebrating 25 years since their debut album, the Sisters With Voices reeled off “I’m So Into You,” “Right Here,” and a show-stopping performance of “Weak At The Knees.” They weren’t about to end on a power ballad, however. As the song closed, the familiar horns from Freedom’s “Get Up And Dance,” as popularized by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, sounded off and Coko, Taj and Lelee launched into their Old Skool remix of “Anything.”
The remix, which premiered on the Above The Rim soundtrack, featured Wu-Tang Clan’s Ol Dirty Bastard, U-God and Method Man. Both U-God and Meth joined the ladies on stage for the medley’s finale. Later in the ceremony, SWV were honored with the Lady of Soul Award.
