  • Maxwell was a LEGEND in the making. Watch his 90s performance of "Sumthin' Sumthin'" on Soul Train! id-tv.org/tv/video-tEXGmGjsH8g.html

    • @Le Général Pépin You are cringe AF, add lame and embarrassing as well. what do you know, have you released even one record, pls leave Maxwell alone. Troll Fail

    • Thanks for the recommend will do so right now, love love Maxwell in the 90's in the 2000's in the 3000's.

    • QUE MUSICA MAXWELL 👑👏👏👏👏

    • @Le Général Pépin What the hell are you talking about? Maxwell is a legend end of story.

    • @omoya 1

  • Maxwell doesn’t come out often, but when he does he leaves a presence.

    • Maxwell is an amazing singer!

    • @Christina E. Amaker I love him but definitely thought something was OFF with him. He may have been high. He should have kept the look he had earlier in the evening.

    • @Christina E. Amaker 😂😂😂

    • This was a HOT MESS!! 🤦🏽‍♀️ His outfit was terrible and the way he was acting was weird.. I was kinda embarrassed 🙈🙈🙈 😂😂😂

    • @P W now this is the truth! Love him to pieces but he needs to perform at least 1.5 hrs with all that talent! Saw him 3 x.

  • Maxwell, Sade and D'Angelo can go missing for 25 years and their music will always make the crowd go crazy.

    • Always!!

    • @ADon The Father Heck yeah!!!!!!!!!!

    • @Gio tayyy WHAT colorist comments??🤨🤔🤷🏽‍♀️

    • @Gio tayyy Who!? 😳

    • 💯💯❤️😩

  • 25 years of this brother's music and he's still on point, hasn't missed a beat.

    • Wow....it doesn't seem that long.

    • @Le Général Pépin This has 1.3 million views is what I'm saying not trying to impose on your views but it's entertainment...

    • Well said!✌🏾🤣

    • @Hispter 1 Justin Bieber has millions of views, Kardashian has millions of subscribers, sorry but the stream milion is not a relevant argument.

    • @Breanna Vienn-Brock You look nice but you're uninteresting. So, if you could avoid notifying me for nothing, that would be super nice of you too. :)

  • Lord that was so good.

    • Man.....like my own lil personal concert.....I LOVE IT!!!!!!🎼🎵🎶🥰🥰

    • @David Canada it’s called “Off”

    • @David Canada Google his albums

    • Give me the name of the song before the last one.

  • WHEN THE AUDIENCE KNOWS YOUR RECORDS WORD FOR WORD OVER 20 YEARS LATER!!!!!! TIMELESS,,,,CLASSIC SOUL MUSIC,,,,THIS IS R&B SOUL MUSIC!!!!!💐💐💐💐💐💐

    • So true! This is great R&B!

    • It sure is..Still got those sassy ..Vibes... Beautiful Soul..I grew up with Motown music..and then Maxwell came along..and he is still rocking it...Legend of the Soul music..

    • I LOVE watching the crowd singing along....word for word...vibin' and dancing!!!!

    • I was just wondering about Maxwell a couple of days ago. Said to my husband -- I wonder where is Maxwell and I need him to bring us some new music. My Folks I started singing me some Maxwell songs..😄😂 Lo and Behold - Maxwell New song and video on ID-tv.

    • Real Life 👍👍💯

  • Maxwell is part of my holy trinity. This celebration of his art means so much.

  • The Brother finally free from his contract and now will own his Masters going forward.. I have been supporting him since day one.. been to several concerts front row.. let's keep supporting this Brother.

    • @BeefyTime1 I take it, this was before the internet existed?

    • @Alex Adamantium may not been "horrible" but owning your masters is everything.

    • @Alex Adamantium same contract he signed since the early 90's. Now he can reap his rewards.

    • I’ll never forget when I first heard him. Was cleaning my room and had on videos for background noise. Heard the baseline and drum track and immediately glued my eyes to the tv. Watched the entire video grooving’. The moment the video ended, I picked up my keys and headed out the door to find the album. Auditory pleasure with every release since then.

    • Oh great!

  • Honestly this whole performance was so attractive. Men dancing and feeling the groove is always a win in my books. Maxwell slayed.

    • HONESTLY! so attractive !

    • He’s definitely my crush 😌🔥😍😍

    • Yes!!! The Men were Grooving right along with the Women!!! Brotherly Love!! Well Done Maxwell!!!❤👍

    • seriously, he’s pretty hot

  • This right here ladies and gentlemen is what you call performing. You don’t get a show like this anymore

  • Wow. He's so reclusive. It's a special treat whenever he and /or D'Angelo appear. It's like catching sight of a blazing comet.

  • It's about time Maxwell is respectfully honored for his contributions. He's an icon in his own right. Countless number of R&B hits!!!

  • I was SOOO LUCKY to see him on his last tour with Jill Scott. He is a total professional, the crowd went insane!!!

    • Now that's a concert JS N MAXWELL

    • He never disappoints on stage. He entertains the crowd from end to end and we are all into it with him.

    • Those smiles from the men & women , satisfaction at the highest oevel & he can dance too! Celebrated Souls for Soul Train Don Cornelius Thanks for kicking the door down in the industry

  • He has his own unique style..He is one of the best performances of all times

    • Yes..Do you think thats why he doesn't have many features..him and Alicia keys were the best but who else could he do a song with? He's too original

  • He can still get it the same way he could back in 95!!! This man is FINE AS HELL!! give him his flowers while he is still here!! Such a talented, beautiful soul!

  • You know you’re a true performer when don’t even need backup dancers. It was the split for me!!!

  • He's one of my favorite male artists of all time. He deserves all his flowers.

    • Yes!!! Thank you for giving him his 💐 🌹 💐 while he is alive. AMAZING!!!!!!!

    • mine too love me some maxwell

    • @Aimé gildas Portella he sampled about 5 of his song's!! Sounded fantastic, too. I love me some Maxwell! 😍

    • Yep mine too 🥰

    • @Aimé gildas Portella Till The Cops Come Knockin Ascension Sumthin Sumthin Bad Habits Lifetime Off (New Song)

  • He's a true artist. I'm so happy that he got his flowers

  • I watch this like once a day, this performance was a Master Class

    • Watch like 5 times a day.

    • @Pernitha Hearne he got tf DOWN, still got the pipes and hasnt aged a day since 96'.

    • Isaiah I watch this eery time I want to feel good.He makes me smile through the whole performance.

    • INDEED!

  • I love how much literal FUN he had with this performance lol

    • Absolutely! That part!!!

  • I'm crying diamond encrusted tears at this man's genius STILL!

  • I won’t say people don’t know because y’all know! Maxwell could get it in the 90s and he *DAMN SURE CAN GET IT NOW 😍*

  • THIS MAN IS A LEGEND FOR A REASON!!!! My parents were fans and had all of his cds so I grew up listening to him. This was awesome!!

  • yall better not ever fire this band. they kill EVERY award show...

  • The audience is on their feet. That's how you know you're watching an icon. Well deserved .

  • This man has been out for almost 3 decades and his music still stands. Beautiful performance!

    • @Nai Atelu Musze

    • @CodyCole80 before he got the record deal in 1995 he had already been singing in clubs nyc

    • @Netnet Mathis Me too ❤️🌹

    • @Leona I love me Maxwell music 🎵🎶🎤💖✨✊🏽😘

    • Sublime songwriter

  • Fortunate and This Woman’s Work would have been the crown on this performance nevertheless this was absolutely amazing. This transported me back in time and evoked feelings which is what true soul music is supposed to do. Thank you Maxwell

  • Love Maxwell and his music! Saw him live: unbelievable. BUT what entertained me even more was the nod to Apollo with the woman in white at the very beginning dancing and gyrating with the big glasses! Back in the old days (‘80s baby) when ‘Showtime at the Apollo’ would come in TV, there was an older woman that wore glasses that was at every show and would get up for EVERY performer and do just what the lady in white did 😆 I think Maxwell set her up as a part of the performance like an ode to Apollo…

    • She did the only Sensible thing, get up and dance

    • I was seriously wondering what was going on

    • He did!! That was a set up, because he sung about it in his song "talking about he 8s going on with "SOUL TRAIN"!! MAX YOU OUGHT TO QUIT!! YOU MUST TO HAVE GIVEN HER SOME OF THAT "$200 BOTTLE" LOL!!

    • Tchina Arnold

    • The old lady was pam from martin show and the person who came and got ger was Gina

  • Verzuz dropped the ball.. instead of letting D’Angelo do one solo, should’ve called Maxwell to battle him… that would’ve been a SHOW 👏🏿 DOWN 👏🏿

    • They did… Maxwell couldn’t make it due to other obligations

    • @Andrea Madison or Maxwell vs Seal

    • @Andrea Madison Eric Benet don’t have the bag to make it a good battle vs Maxwell.. I can’t remember more than one hit Eric got besides the one with Tamia from back back in the day 😬

    • Maxwell vs. Eric Benet would've been better in my opinion

    • Next Time...This was perfect

  • When you live up to the Legend Award... I was literally tearing when he spoke on stage... talk about someone who deserves their flowers 💐😍💐💐💐💐💐💐 he was so humble and graceful and he literally shook the stage with that split... how do you spell Icon. M.A.X.W.E.L.L. ... PERIOD !!!!!!!!!!!!!😍😍😍😍😍 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥‼️‼️‼️ MAX YOU SHUT IT DOWN SIR !!!!!! 25 YEARS !!!

  • I appreciate artists who can sing live.

  • Saw him a couple of years ago at Fox Theater in Detroit. He is just a gem. Protect him at all cost. 🥰

  • I would've liked to hear him sing Fortunate but his whole set was amaaaazing!!!

    • @BeefyTime1 Definitely because R. Kelly wrote it. Damn good song regardless.

    • And that's very unfortunate because though it was an amazing performance, Fortunate was def missed

    • @BeefyTime1 That's my thought.

    • @Summez R Kelly

    • @James Alston care to share?

  • He is probably one of the last concerts I went to and he’s a class act. Let his background vocalists shine and sang in their place in the background like it was nothing.

  • Maxwell doesn’t just make masterpieces, HE IS A MASTERPIECE, A VIBE AN ERA!!

    • @Breanna Vienn-Brock not replying to you.I don't care what he wears the sexy still comes through.

    • We keep talking maybe they'll give him his proper platform and 👑 as he will always be a Gentleman ❤. The World needs more of this Healing 🎶 🎶 🙏 factor ...

    • Truly!

    • Yes

    • My guy

  • He killed it , loved how he introduced his new track in there and it just fitted

  • I've never stopped listening to Maxwell. His music never gets old to me. Love this!

  • He’s timeless, so damn original and definitely worth the wait

  • I love his music and he a nice and humble gentlemen. The gentlemen deserve this. Might I say! And very pleasing to the eye. Congratulations to you Maxwell!! Song's are very heartfelt.

  • Grew up with this music. This man is a genius. Will always be one of my biggest heroes.

  • I mean his version of "This Women's Work" is so hauntingly beautiful. That was the only song that was missing from here for me.

    • I was waiting for pretty wings....but I guess he has hits upon hits upon hits.

    • @Devin Pelt I think he purposely left out Fortunate because R. Kelly wrote it. It's one of my favorite but I think it was smart move to keep it out of the lineup.

    • He saving a little for his 2022 tour

    • I agree with this entire thread... I also so wanted him to sing matrimony....but damnit, too many hits.

    • I would have liked to hear “Fortunate” as well but unfortunately he just has too many hits. Pun intended.

  • This on repeat how I played the tape and CD when UHS first dropped in '96. The whole set slams. RESPECT to all fans 🙏🏾😷

  • I am watching this for I can't tell you how many times and I just realize he is a master he goes from song to song to song not randomly but in a way that builds up the concert or performance

  • This man never misses after all these years!!! He is such a blessing to the industry!

  • You know his new music is going to be great, when he slides a new song in and it fits beautifully. 0:00- Till the cops come knockin 0:48- Bad Habits 3:03- Lifetime 4:58- Sumthin Sumthin 6:48- Off 8:48- Ascension

    • thanks ❤️‍🔥

  • I'm 68 yr old; Maxwell has had me up better than any medication I have ever had since that "SOUL TRAIN AWARDS performance"!! Thanks "Maxwell"!! I have watched this video almost 50 times!! My Son is out trying to find me a "VIDEO"!! I HAVE TO SEE "Maxwell"!! HE loves his "Audiences"!! A very good heart!! Weighing!!!

  • This man has the most PASSIONATE crowd of any performer. There is a difference between passionate and crazed lunacy. His crowd is filled with enraptured passion for him and his music!

  • Well deserved! This man’s catalog stands the test of time. He’s classy and classic.

    • @TVwriter23 you're right. If it's not right, he won't put it out. He's true to his craft.

    • Yes it did yes it did be safe and careful all the way from Baton Rouge Louisiana 2021

    • Facts!!!

    • Period.

    • YES ❣

  • What a musical genius!!!! Thank you BET for honoring a legend and icon while he is still here among us. I felt this for real🖤🖤🖤

  • True entertainer, the man still got that special "Maxwell" swag! From ‘fro to toe!

  • Maxwell never disappoints. He has amazing vocals and range tones

  • He did that. See this is how we want our artist to evolve, yes I said OUR. He was exceptionally smooth but intense. I loved it. A better performance then what I see lately in this newer generation of artist.

    • One In a Million Performance by an Extraordinaire Soul.

  • Besides MJ, this is who the Weekend should have looked up to and studied as well, this dude still got it and hasn't missed a beat

    • @Kim Williams Yes, Michael was his inspiration, he mentioned this.

    • @Kim Williams YES IT DOES....WE JUST GET OLD.

    • @rebecca smith Michael Jackson was not his inspiration

    • @Bin Wahlireal music don't change!

    • @Chris Cureton yessssss!

  • He’s so amazing sounds sooo good and moving even better I’m glad he got his flowers while he is alive!!

  • This was so cool and unexpected. Im happy to see him honored, it's well deserved. Also his energy level was off the charts - he's 48 WOW

  • Maxwell is like a solar eclipse, he doesn't come around often, but when he does it's always special

  • An absolutely wonderful performance! Everything was thoroughly entertaining, Maxwell knows how to put on a show! The supporting vocals were absolutely luscious too.

  • When the audience is singing right along with you - that’s how you know you’ve left an impact!

    • Facts! It’s a beautiful thing❤️💫🙏🏾

  • The fact that he actually sings every song….. I miss the old days before DJ’s

  • It was so refreshing and to know the lyrics after all this time it got me so charged up and revisit Maxwell music, thanks for blessing us with your talent 🙏🏿👌😊

    • Yes! I'm listening to All of his music during this pandemic.

  • I've had the pleasure of listening to him in concert and it was one of the best nights of my life. That was 17 years ago. He's just amazing!

  • I did not understand his music when I was young bt now I respect him.

  • He is the “Prince” of my generation! Props to both legends

    • @Andre Motivation that's 💯 accurate!

    • @soledisciple oh i never saw him live in person, i just meant that whenever u would watch him at award shows or tv performances he always killed it.

    • @Andre Motivation that's cool that you got to experience Prime Maxwell. I never been to his concerts. My wife actually put me on to his music 20 years ago.

    • I agree, every live performance I've seen of this dude since I was a kid has been on point. Minus the instrumental skills and extravagance wardrobe of Prince, Maxwell is a showman just like him.

    • @Jacob Kom Yes, I'm not saying he is equal to Prince but his creativity and uniqueness and funky style carried the torch.

  • It's about time he gets his dues what classic act Maxwell is just a treasure.

  • His voice, I swear, it gives me goosebumps EVERYTIME…

  • Definitely planning to see Maxwell in 2022, I am ready for this live experience! He’s one of my favorite 😍🥰

  • This is grown folks music right here yes yes

  • He is deserving of the long overdue honor! I’ve been a fan from day one! For me, he’s right under Prince🖤❤️

  • There is not one "ARTIST" that ever put on a performance as smooth, meaningful or silky as "Maxwell"; dead or alive!!

  • Maxwell and Kem are the two huge soul singers who have strong stage presence. They have class, sound great and always put on a wonderful show. These guys are excellent performers. I appreciate the soul train awards. Congratulations Maxwell

  • 5:05 Wow. Seriously this guy is a legend. Wow.

    • But he just didn’t age. Still as handsome as he was when I was a kid and I’m 35

    • Lol yea he did !

    • Lol right 😍, I was looking like is this old. Nope!

    • Did anyone else notice he also shaved his beard to give us that Maxwell "look" we remember. Check out the beginning of the show when he was in the audience. YES! He definitely understood the assignment. I LOVE it!!!!!!

  • I love that he had a lot of the elements of his first performance on that stage. He's a true elevation of R AND B music. You deserve because he doesn't give anything but his best on the stage. A master of entertainment.

  • Absolutely love him!!! Such a treasure. "Suitelady" is still one of my favorites from him. Well deserved 💓

  • Privileged to see Maxwell at Manchester Uni back in the Urban Hang Suite days. Wow can that guy sing! Still one of the best live performances I’ve seen to this day. Great to see him getting this much deserved accolade.

  • The old Maxwell is back. With him owning his masters and being from under the record label, he feels free. I’m here for it!! This was a great performance and well deserved.

    • Folks listened to Prince

    • @Dawn Jackson He is just SO CLASSY. He stays above-the-fray and out of the FOOLISHNESS. I miss the classy black r n b stars of yesterday.

  • What a brilliant singer it's about time he was recognized for his contribution to RnB. I was lucky enough to see him perform live in NZ once... Loved every bit of it ❤️
