Silk Sonic Hits #1!

Anderson .Paak has his first ever No. 1 single with “Leave the Door Open,” his Bruno Mars collab as Silk Sonic.

“Leave the Door Open” initially debuted at No. 4 following its March 5 release.

“@brunomars WE DID IT BRO!!! It is now safe to wear your bell bottoms all week!! #LeaveTheDoorOpen is the number 1 song in the country and I can’t thank y’all enough! @brunomars we poppin bottles in the Stu today I’m otw champ! AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!” Anderson .Paak wrote.

Anderson spoke highly about Bruno Mars.

“When you get in and you can jam with someone and other artists that could hold it down and you’re bouncing, that’s different,” he said. “That’s the difference and you’re really creating a groove from scratch. You guys are trying to figure out what’s going to work. What’s the math behind this that’s going to get everybody feeling good? What is it? Is it too heavy? Is it not heavy enough? And especially with this song, it’s a song that requires so much patience and [delicatessens]. A lot of meat went into this song.”

“Leave the Door Open” will appear on Silk Sonic’s debut album, which doesn’t have a release date yet.
