The smoothest duo in music, Silk Sonic—comprised of Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars, just released a new video and single, “Smoking Out the Window.”
The ’70s sounding track is the third single from Silk Sonic’s forthcoming and debut album, An Evening With Silk Sonic, which is slated for release on November 12 from the R&B supergroup.
In the new song, Mars and .Paak share verses, singing about the realization that a lover is not being faithful and has many other men on the side.
This B*tch Got Me Paying Her Rent, Paying For Trips / Diamonds On Her Neck, Diamonds On Her Wrist / And Here I Am All Alone (All Alone) / I’m So Cold, I’m So Cold / You Got Me Out Here.
Smoking Out The Window (Smoking Out The Window) / Singin’ How Could She Do This To Me? (How Could She Do This To Me?) / I Thought That Girl Belonged To Only Me / But I Was Wrong / ‘Cuz She Belong To Everybody, Everybody,” they sing in the chorus.
According to legend, the famed musician, Bootsy Collins, came up with the band’s name. As a prize, Collins is featured in the new video, which Mars directed.
