It’s safe to say Beyonce owned the 48th NAACP Image Awards. The music superstar won big in the music category, securing five awards.
Queen B’s wins include Outstanding Female Artist, Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration for “Freedom” feat. Kendrick Lamar, Outstanding Music Video, Outstanding Album, and Outstanding Song – Contemporary for “Freedom” feat. Kendrick Lamar.
The 48th NAACP Image Awards winners were announced last night during a live broadcast from Pasadena Civic Auditorium which aired on TV One. The two-hour live special was hosted by Anthony Anderson.
Some of the biggest names in R&B music appeared including: John Legend, Janelle Monae, Jussie Smollett, and Andra Day.
R&B veteran Maxwell also won in the music category, taking home Outstanding Male Artist.
The winners of the “48th NAACP Image Awards” in the non-televised categories were announced during a gala dinner celebration that took place Friday, February 10, 2017, at the Pasadena Civic Center Ballroom – the event was hosted by Erica Ash and Deon Cole.

Today, February 11, is a somber day for R&B lovers!
Five years ago, we lost one of the greatest voices in the history of music, Mrs. Whitney Houston. We remember her impeccable contributions to music by sharing the below playlist of some of her countless hits as well as testimonials from fans, including Ciara.
Houston, who struggled with drug addiction, before she passed on February 11, 2002.
On the fifth anniversary of her death fans have taken to social media to pay tribute to this one of a kind icon.
I think it’s safe to say “The New Edition Story” biopic is responsible for putting the famed R&B sextet back on the charts.
Their greatest hits album New Edition, All the Number Ones was released back in 2000, but it’s made a resurgence on the Billboard 200 chart at No. 37. The last time NE hit the Top 40 was back in 2004 with their album One Love, which debuted and peaked at No. 12.
The compilation album earned 12,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Feb. 2, according to Nielsen Music. The set also features solo hits from the group’s individual members and spin-off trio Bell Biv DeVoe.
But New Edition, All the Number Ones isn’t the only NE album gaining ground on the charts; the group’s 1988 album N.E. Heartbreak also rises 195-85, as it’s up 7,000 units (79 percent).
