Newly minted powerhouse duo Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak have returned to share Silk Sonic‘s second single titled “Skate,” which is slated to appear on their highly anticipated album An Evening With Silk Sonic later this year. The funky, retrofitted new track follows the pair’s critically lauded debut single together which landed earlier this spring, “Leave The Door Open.” Now Silk Sonic is back for more, delivering “Skate” with a summer-themed music video directed by Mars, Florent Déchard, and Philippe Tayag.
“Skate” offers another refreshing addition to the collaborative project’s nostalgic, 70s-inspired catalog, effortlessly leaning into sexy drum grooves and soulful vocals. The vintage-styled music video finds Mars and .Paak, purveyors of good vibes only, performing to a group of female roller skaters, gliding synchronously to track’s stellar blend of R&B, disco, and funk. Watch the music video for Silk Sonic’s “Skate” below.
