About Silk Sonic:
The seeds of the collaboration were planted in 2017 when Anderson .Paak was on tour with Bruno Mars on the European leg of his 24K Magic World Tour. One late-night jam session on the road unlocked immediate chemistry. Just before the world slipped into quarantine, Bruno called Anderson: “Remember that idea we had back in 2017? Let’s do it.” One studio session grew into to a months-long collaboration, culminating the “setlist of doom.” Legendary Bootsy Collins christened Silk Sonic and came in as the “special guest host” for An Evening With Silk Sonic, their debut album.
Silk Sonic introduced “Leave The Door Open” in March 2021 alongside an official music video directed by Mars and Florent Déchard, which won Best R&B Video and Best Editing at the 2021 MTV Music Video Awards. The track was followed by a hugely popular social media campaign, #LetSilkSonicThrive, which earned them a debut live performance at the 63rd Annual GRAMMY® Awards (plus a powerful tribute to Little Richard) followed quickly by iconic live sets at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and the BET Awards. “Leave The Door Open” became Silk Sonic’s first #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, spending two non-consecutive weeks at #1 and 18 consecutive weeks in the top 10. The duo recently swept the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards, taking home four awards including Record Of The Year (“Leave The Door Open”), Song Of The Year (“Leave The Door Open”), Best R&B Performance (“Leave The Door Open”), and Best R&B Song (“Leave The Door Open”). Earlier this year, they cleared the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards winning, Best Duo/Group of the Year, R&B Song of the Year for “Leave The Door Open” and R&B Album of the Year for An Evening With Silk Sonic.
Their infectious jingle co-written and performed for SelvaRey Rum amassed widescale praise over the summer. The duo then coasted into their sophomore release of “Skate,” which saw them glide into a second top 10 hit on Billboards Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs as it debuted at #4 and began as the genre’s best-selling song of the week. Billboard noted “Smokin’ Out The Window” how “Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars take it all the way back to the 1970s Soul Train era in the retro video. [It]finds them going through their choreo on an old school TV set while rocking wide lapel tuxedo jackets.” An Evening With Silk Sonic was recently updated to include Silk Sonic’s cover of Con Funk Shun’s “Love’s Train,” which has reached #1 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay and R&B Radio.
