Nothing like making a big deal out of nothing.
Bruno Mars has told Rolling Stone that he and Anderson Paak are withdrawing their 2021 release, “An Evening with Silk Sonic,” from Grammy consideration this year.
That’s very brave of them since the single from that album, “Leave the Door Open,” already won Best Record last year. The single was released before the Grammy deadline on September 30, 2021 so it was eligible for last winter’s Grammys. The album came out in November, so it could be be up for awards this year.
But let’s face it. Silk Sonic getting nominated now would be a little weird. And Bruno and Paak probably aren’t interested in performing the old songs on an awards show. They’ve got their statue. Why not just sit out the competition and have a good time?
“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,” Bruno said. “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.”
