If this pairing doesn’t make you see the world as a gold-tinted R&B music video, I don’t know what will. Two masters of all things smooth, Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars, have come together to form the most soulful super group we’ve seen in years, Silk Sonic. Silk Sonic’s first single, “Leave the Door Open,” arrives with a music video and an intro track from the album’s special guest host, Bootsy Collins.
Andy and Bruno slip into an impassioned slow jam for their duo debut, AP’s buttery smooth verses paving the way for Mars to come in strong with that voice we’ve been missing since his chart topping 2016 album, 24k Magic. With a full band of instrumental and vocal support behind them, these two sultans of soul have us melting from head to toe.
This marks the first material released off the duo’s upcoming album, An Evening With Silk Sonic, due out later this year. If you’re as excited for this collab as we are, make sure you check back here for their future releases. Until then, stream Silk Sonic’s debut single, “Leave The Door Open,” and it’s charismatic intro below. Enjoy!
