At the top of the month, Silk Sonic finally unveiled their highly anticipated project An Evening with Silk Sonic. Following the stellar music videos and nominations, the latest offering from the project to keep the momentum going is their live rendition of “Fly As Me” as performed at this years BET Soul Train Awards. The song emits the ‘70s and ‘80s funk style present throughout the project and the performance set up tapped into the groovy energy people all knew and loved from years ago as the lyrics play:
Now have you ever been with a player? Take you downtown where they treat me like the mayor/ Take you to the crib, we can take it upstairs ”What’s upstairs?” Shit, I’ma show you later/ Don’t need a spatula, everything catered, extra flavor
Silk Sonic, the duo composed of Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars, first made a triumphant introduction in March with their debut single, “Leave The Door Open,” followed by “Skate” and “Smokin’ Out The Window.”
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.
They 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.
