The BET Centric Award (simply called the Centric Award) recognizes neo soul and/or traditional R&B artists. Until 2012, artists were nominated; in 2013 BET began recognizing specific songs and their respective videos. The 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.
