Though Anderson .Paak is enjoying his newly-minted partnership with Bruno Mars as part of Silky Sonic, his solo career continues to flourish after netting another Grammy at this year’s ceremonies Sunday night (March 14)
Winning best melodic rap performance for his 2020 emotionally-charged single “Lockdown,” Paak issued a riveting acceptance speech following his victory.
“I wanna say thank you to the team that helped me put this record together. I wanna say thank you to the academy,” he said. “Lastly, I want to say that this song “Lockdown” is dedicated to every human being who actually has a voice. If you have a voice, don’t be afraid to use it ’cause they watching, and this is proof.”
Earlier in the night, .Paak joined Bruno Mars for a series of performances, most notably their first together as Silky Sonic. .Paak’s lastest feat extends his Grammy win-total to four. He previously netted two in 2019 for best R&B performance and best R&B album.
