Silk Sonic gets the smooth rolling with “Skate,” their second release.
The soulful duo of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak came together earlier this year for “Leave The Door Open,” a warm and fuzzy tune which led the Billboard Ho 100 chart.
Since then, Silk Sonic have showed their stuff in a live context at the Grammy Awards, the iHeartRadio Music Awards, and the BET Awards, where they were nominated for three trophies (video of the year, best group, and viewer’s choice).
It also reached the summit on the Adult R&B Airplay chart, becoming the fastest to reach the No. 1 spot by male artists in the chart’s history.
A studio album, An Evening with Silk Sonic, is said to be coming soon-ish.
“Skate” is another funky throwback ‘70s vibe. On it, Mars sings, “Got your hair in the wind and your skin glistening/ I can smell your sweet perfume/ Mmmm, ya smell better than a barbecue/ Oh, superstar is what you are/ I’m your biggest fan/ If you’re lookin’ for a man, suga, here I am.”
“Skate” is accompanied with a music video, directed by Mars and Florent Dechard.
