Chris Brown, Usher and Trey Songz will all be vying for Best Male Soul and R&B artist at this yearâs American Music Awards. Brown is coming fresh off of his Billboard-charting single âDeuces,â and is proving to be getting back on the publicâs good side since his 2009 domestic violence incident. Usher is also a nominee for Favorite Male Artist and Best R&B album. Drake and B.O.B are up for Favorite Male Hip-Hop artists and Sade, Rihanna and Alicia Keys are going against each other for Favorite Soul and R&B Female Artist.
