Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak bless us with new Silk Sonic single “Skate”


Silk Sonic has finally blessed fans with another taste of the forthcoming album. On Wednesday (July 28), Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars took to their individual social media accounts to post a flyer announcing the release of some more music. While their captions didn’t give any more hints at all, the promotional posts themselves feature a red-colored classic car parked on a street with the overall vibe of the photo giving off a relaxed, tropical feel.

Silk Sonic now returns today (July 30) to welcome us to their Summertime Jam with a freshly released single “Skate.” The new track arrives with an upbeat music video and also follows their highly successful “Leave The Door Open” release, which has been blaring through everyone’s speakers since March of this year.

The song dropped a week after Mars and .Paak shocked the music world when they surprised-announced their new band. “Leave The Door Open” was well-received, easily peaking as the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100. It was recently featured on Barack Obama’s summer playlist and has since been certified platinum. The also came together to perform the record at the 2021 Grammys as well as the BET Awards.
