Anderson .Paak & Bruno Mars’ SilkSonic Petition Grammys For A Performance

If Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars should have their way, fans will most definitely be seeing them on the Grammy stage later this month.

For now, they have the uphill battle of convincing the Recording Academy to respond to their tweets and their rather long but trending hashtags #LetSilkSonicThrive.

The hashtag is a reference to the newly formed duo which the two recently dreamt up, to the pleasure of die-hearted.Paak and Mars fans. The duo has since released their breakout track “Leave The Door Open” which they are petitioning to unveil on one of the biggest nights of music. The music video has already accumulated over 14 million views on Youtube since its release on March 05.

Due to Covid-19 constraints, the show was pushed back from its usual January slot to March 14, still to be held at the legendary Staples Arena in Los Angeles. Among the names set to grace the stage are Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Megan Thee Stallion, kaytranada, Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch, among other urban talents.

Silk Sonic has been campaigning heavily on Twitter to get the public to champion their efforts to have themselves featured among the magnificent crop of talents. Mars penned an open letter addressed to the Recording Academy.

.Paak, who has enjoyed a major uptick in his fanbase over the last year, also joined in to give a helping hand in promoting the message.

“Nah f**k that! I haven’t seen my family in months!! I need this to work, You promised me!! Everybody join in!!! I need all of Twitter to help make this trend!! Come on @RecordingAcad #LetSilkSonicThrive,” wrote .Paak.

Within hours, the hashtag was trending in numerous locations such as Spain, United States, Colombia, Mexico, Peru’ and Brazil.

With no actual recognition from the Grammys, it seems Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak may be giving up on their valiant efforts.

You’re right. I got excited we were trending for a while today. I’m sorry I let you down. I hope you & BTS go on to do great things. ? https://t.co/kjpiGQdylP

Why do we like this?

Oooh, but these are some smooth sounds. While Bruno Mars’ latest album, 24K Magic, was released way back in 2016, and contemporary hip-hop artist Anderson .Paak’s Ventura debuted in 2019 (and both took home several Grammys between them,) the pair have now doubled down and joined forces with a brand new offering for 2021, in the form of their new band, Silk Sonic.

The first single, “Leave the Door Open,” is the perfect mix of vibey soul-funk and jazzy R&B. The duo harmonizes exquisitely throughout the track while complemented by their backing band, creating a slow-jam that brings to mind late-night booty-calls and “you up?” texts sent at 2 AM.

This song is sexy and sensual with none of the smut or drama. An easy song for an easy time, if you will. It’s a retro, 70’s-inspired vintage callback that wouldn’t be out of place playing in the background while two empty glasses of wine sit forgotten about on the coffee table as the evening’s entertainment beckons to you from a shag-pile rug in front of a roaring fire.

The door has been left open, and I’m walking straight through it without a second thought.

“Leave the Door Open” will feature on Silk Sonic’s forthcoming album, A Night With Silk Sonic, due for release later this year.
