NEW MUSIC: BRUNO MARS, ANDERSON .PAAK & SILK SONIC | LOVE'S TRAIN
In honour of Valentine's Day, Silk Sonic has released a cover of their favourite song, "Love's Train," by Con Funk Shun. Mars declared of their new rendition, “This is one of Silk Sonic’s favourite songs originally recorded by the group Con Funk Shun. Every time @anderson._paak and I get behind instruments, and we play this. We love this song so much we wanted to sing it for y’all.” 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. "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. In the meantime, 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. "Smokin Out The Window" arrived last week with Billboard noting how "Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars take it 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." Sil Sonic's album "An Evening With Silk Sonic" is out now.
