    The second annual Soul Train Awards will honor R&B icon Anita Baker with their Legend Award at the ceremony, which is scheduled for Wednesday, November 10 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in metropolitan Atlanta.

    The fete will be hosted by Oscar-nominated actors Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, with the broadcast premiering on both CENTRIC and BET on Sunday, November 28 at 9:00 PM. The Soul Train Awards show is shaping up to be an event, as Grammy-award winning R&B superstar R. Kelly will open the show with a performance, followed by today's hottest artists including Ne-Yo, Cee-lo, Keyshia Cole, Rick Ross, Erykah Badu, Eric Benét, Chrisette Michele, Lalah Hathaway, Faith Evans, Janelle Monáe, Gyptian, Freddie Jackson, Jeffrey Osborne, Tamia, and Tank. For more information, please visit www.centrictv.com.

    Baker is set to make fans of her romantic style excited with the forthcoming album 21st Century Love, which is her seventh studio album and is scheduled to be released on EMI's Blue Note Records in 2011. The album will feature the same classic baby making music that Baker is known for, but with a modern twist. Baby making? Anita Baker is the female Isaac Hayes! Rawr!

    Baker has been sampled by the likes of Drake, so she certainly is happily embracing Century 21! Snoop Dogg and Tyrese guest on the album!

    Are you going to check out 21st Century Love because Snoop Dogg teams up with Baker?
