The BET Centric Award (simply called the Centric Award) recognizes and is awarded to neo soul and/or traditional R&B artists. The award is named after one of BET's sister channels, Centric. The Centric Award was first awarded in 2006 as the BET J Cool Like That Award. The name of the award was changed when BET J was rebranded as Centric in 2009. It is usually awarded during the red carpet pre-show.
