Named Silk Sonic by the legendary Bootsy Collins, multiple GRAMMY® Award winners Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak’s have come together to create the set list of doom.

 

The highly anticipated new collaboration saw the release of “Leave The Door Open” that was produced by Mars and D’Mile, and written by Bruno, Anderson, D’Mile and Brody Brown.

 

“Leave the Door Open” is available everywhere today along with a very special intro track featuring special guest host Bootsy Collins. Silk Sonic’s debut album, AN EVENING WITH SILK SONIC will be available later this year.

ABOUT BRUNO MARS:

 

With worldwide sales of more than 130 million albums and more than 173 million singles, Bruno Mars is one of the best-selling artists of all time. DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS marked the landmark debut of a remarkable new artist. The album – which peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 – has gone on to achieve global album equivalent sales of 15.5 million. Now boasting more than 7.8 billion total streams, DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS is certified RIAA 6X platinum, the longest charting debut album on Top 200 and #4 longest running of all time.

 

DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS received a wide range of honors and accolades to match its popular success, including GRAMMY® Awards for “Album of the Year” and “Best Pop Vocal Album.” The album spawned a string of blockbuster hit singles and companion videos, including “Just The Way You Are,” “Grenade,” “The Lazy Song,” “Talking to the Moon,” “Marry You,” and “Count On Me.”   

 

Indeed, “Just The Way You Are” and “Grenade” proved era-defining hits around the world, reaching #1 on the Billboard “Hot 100” and numerous singles charts around the globe. In addition, “Just The Way You Are” went on to receive the GRAMMY® Award for “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance,” while “Grenade” was honored with three GRAMMY® Award nominations, including “Record of the Year” “Song of the Year,” and “Best Pop Solo Performance.”

His most recent album, the critically acclaimed, 3x platinum certified 24K MAGIC, made an impressive debut atop Billboard’s “Top Digital Albums” and “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” charts upon its 2016 arrival. The album includes the 7x platinum certified, #1 single, “That’s What I Like” – Mars’ seventh “Hot 100” chart-topper and first ever #1 on the “Hot R&B Songs” chart, affirming him as one of the few artists to have written and produced each of his #1 hits as well as to have a #1 song on the “Hot 100” from each of his first three studio albums.

 

Mars and 24K MAGIC proved the biggest winners at 2018’s GRAMMY® Awards, winning all seven categories for which he received nominations, including “Record of the Year,” “Album of the Year,” “Best R&B Album,” and “Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.” Furthermore, “That’s What I Like” received the GRAMMY® for “Song of the Year,” “Best R&B Song,” and “Best R&B Performance.”

 

Among his truly countless accolades, Mars is a 4x Guinness World Record holder, with his milestone 2015 NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show drawing a record-breaking total viewership of over 115.3 million. Mars also holds the world record as the “First Male Artist to Achieve Three 10 Million Selling Singles” and “Most Followed Male Chart-topper on Musical.ly,” while 2016’s 2x GRAMMY® Award-winning, worldwide #1 collaboration with Mark Ronson, “Uptown Funk,” made history for the “Most Weeks at #1 on the U.S. Digital Song Sales” chart.
