Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater is still smoldering from the classic brilliance that is simply Silk Sonic!
With their soul-stirring performance of “Leave the Door Open“, the dynamic duo blissfully ignited the 2021 BET Awards, then alluringly cooled things off, proving indefinitely that they are twinkling stars by themselves, yet explosive supernovas together. Released on March 5, 2021, the 70’s inspired soul jam serves as the lead single from the duo’s upcoming debut studio album An Evening with Silk Sonic. The performance, which mimicked the serene, yet seductive ambiance of the song’s music video, showcased a pink blazer clad Bruno Mars and turquoise blazer laced Anderson .Paak flanked by a multitude of women.
The ladies danced sensually along with the suave crooners, as they smoothly belted out every note of their precise romantic proposition. The audience gladly became a part of the soiree, as they gleefully sang along. At the performance’s end, the duo even added to the excitement by jokingly asking if everyone was ready for the next single. Of course, we are! An undeniable commercial success, “Leave the Door Open” has since become certified platinum, peaking at number one in multiple charts, including the US Billboard Hot 100.
It has also entered the top ten in several countries, including Belgium, Australia, Portugal and Canada. Additionally, the song has also reached the top twenty in the Netherlands, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Denmark. Not surprisingly, “Leave the Door Open” led to the duo picking up this year’s Best Group award with Mars also snagging the Video Director of the Year alongside Florent Déchard. With their debut single receiving so much acclaim, one can’t help what to wonder what Silk Sonic is cooking up next!
