It’s been more than four years since Bruno Mars released his last album, 24K Magic. Apart from a handful of collaborations since then, notably “Please Me” with Cardi B in 2019, we haven’t heard much from Bruno in a while. Now, fans finally have some new music to look forward to! But… it’s not his fourth solo album you may have been expecting. Bruno Mars just revealed that he and rapper Anderson .Paak have teamed up to form the duo Silk Sonic.
The two have a new album coming soon, elegantly titled An Evening With Silk Sonic. (It will also feature an appearance from Bootsy Collins.) While there’s no release date for the album just yet, we do have a date locked in for the first single. Next Friday, March 5th, get ready to hear the first song from Silk Sonic.
Check out Bruno’s full announcement about Silk Sonic below:
More from Bruno Mars
Bruno’s last album, 24K Magic, came out in November 2016; he ultimately won six Grammys for it and its singles. It launched the singles “24K Magic,” “That’s What I Like,” and “Versace On The Floor,” plus a duet version of “Finesse” featuring Cardi B. In February 2019, Bruno and Cardi teamed up again for a new song called “Please Me.” The previous year, Bruno had also collaborated with Gucci Mane and Kodak Black on the single, “Wake Up In The Sky.”
More from Anderson .Paak
Anderson’s last album, Ventura, came out in April 2019, only five months after his previous album. Ventura launched the singles “King James” and “Make It Better” (featuring Smokey Robinson).
