Bruno Mars is a repeat winner…
The 37-year-old part-Puerto Rican Grammy-winning singer/songwriter and his Silk Sonic group mate Anderson .Paak came away with one the top prizes at the Soul Train Awards, which aired on BET and BET Her on Saturday (November 27).
Mars’ Silk Sonic won video of the year for the second year in a row with “Smokin’ Out the Window.”
