Congrats are in order for Coco Jones, who just earned her first-ever award nomination as a musician.
The “Caliber” singer took to social media to celebrate her Best New Artist nomination at the 2022 BET Soul Train Awards.
“BE FORREALLLL??? My first nomination as a musician I’m BESIDE myselfff @SoulTrain thank you!!!” she tweeted.
While the nomination marks the first of her music career, Jones was recognized by BET in June when she was nominated for Best Actress at the 2022 BET Awards. Her role as Hilary Banks on the hit Peacock series Bel-Air cemented Jones as a star on the rise. Now, she’s making a name for herself in the music world.
After alerting fans of new music this month, Jones dropped her latest track “ICU” on Friday. She then shared clips of what looks to be the song’s music video but has yet to release an official video.
Up against Jones for Best New Artist are CKay, Dixson, Doechii, Fireboy DML, Muni Long, Steve Lacy and Tems.
The Soul Train Awards 2022 takes place November 13 in Las Vegas and premieres Sunday, November 27 at 8 p.m. ET on BET and BET Her.
