Silk Sonic is without a doubt one of music’s polarizing duos in recent times and it is a beautiful thing to see them thriving the way they are. Silk Sonic, the duo composed of Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars, made a triumphant introduction in March with their debut single, “Leave The Door Open.” Co-produced by Mars and D’Mile, “Leave The Door Open” made history on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart in April, after soaring to No. 1 in just four weeks. (It was the first song to earn this feat on the airplay chart since Mary J. Blige’s 2016 hit “Thick of It.”) Today (Nov. 12), the duo provides us with some high quality jams with their new album An Evening With Silk Sonic.
The duo met back in 2016 after Anderson supported Bruno live during his European leg of the latter’s 24K Magic music world tour and the rest was history. Years later, they gave their first live performance this year at the 2021 Grammy Awards back in March and fans have been over eager for a joint project between the two and the time has finally come.
The duo kept the production credits to a minimum on the album. Nearly every song on An Evening With Silk Sonic was co-produced by Bruno Mars and D’Mile. Mars is the sole producer credited on “777,” and The Stereotypes are included on “After Last Night.” As for the songwriting credits, Anderson .Paak, Mars and D’Mile co-wrote every song on the album. Additional credits include Brody Brown, DOMi & JD Beck, James Fauntleroy, Sean Anderson (a.k.a Big Sean), The Stereotypes and Thundercat.
Between the star power of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, Silk Sonic is on the verge of being one of the greatest R&B duos when it is all said and done. Check out the album now!
