As fans get ready to see which of their favorite artist(s) will be nominated for awards during next year’s award season, they will not see Silk Sonic on that list.
The group made up of Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak revealed that they will not be submitting their album An Evening with Silk Sonic, for Grammy consideration. In a statement released by Bruno Mars, he said, “We truly put our all on this record, but Silk Sonic would like to gracefully, humbly and most importantly, sexually, bow out of submitting our album this year. We hope we can celebrate with everyone on a great year of music and partake in the party. Thank you for letting Silk Sonic thrive.”
The album was expected to be nominated for a few categories including, Album of the Year. Mars explained the group’s decision some more. “Andy and I, and everyone that worked on this project, won the moment the world responded to ‘Leave The Door Open.’ Everything else was just icing on the cake. We thank the Grammys for allowing us to perform on their platform- not once but twice- and awarding us at last year’s ceremony. We’d be crazy to ask for anything more.”
Silk Sonic’s debut album hit the number the #2 spot on the Billboard Hot 200 chart. What are your thoughts on this?
