Multiple GRAMMY® Award winners Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak gear up for their debut album as Silk Sonic with “Smokin Out The Window,” the third single off An Evening With Silk Sonic. Watch the official visual HERE. They announced the official release date for An Evening With Silk Sonic as November 12, 2021, where it will be available at all streaming services [pre-save HERE]. An Evening With Silk Sonic will arrive with previously released hits “Skate” and “Leave The Door Open.”
Silk Sonic introduced “Leave The Door Open” 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 GRAMMY® Awards 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 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. In the meantime, the pair was also heard singing about the award-winning spirit, SelvaRey Rum, in their infectious jingle released earlier this summer.
What’s new, smooth as silk on the ears, and features two stars of R&B?
The Seventies-soul-indebted ballad [“Leave The Door Open”] is extravagant, soft, slightly woozy, and just the right amount of winningly, winkingly ridiculous.
Both the song and the arrangement are pitch-perfect, with swooning strings, honeyed backing vocals and even a glockenspiel — think Delfonics, the Chi-Lites and basically everything on the Philadelphia International label.
Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars are about to turn the world into their groupies. Their first single as duo Silk Sonic, “Leave the Door Open,” is a smooth bedroom classic that calls back to ’70s slow jams.
