The dynamite duo are Grammy winners as solo artists. It turns out, they’ve used this slow time to collaborate on a new act named Silk Sonic, the first music for which will drop in a matter of days.
“We locked in and made an album,” Mars tweeted. “The band’s called Silk Sonic. First song drops next Friday 3/5.”
We haven’t heard from Mars since 2019 when he guested on Ed Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project track, “Blow”. The R&B and pop singer’s last solo album proper was 2016’s 24K Magic.
Paak, the master multi-instrumentalist from California, last dropped an LP in 2019, Ventura.
