Silk Sonic Withdraws His Album From Grammy Consideration E! News UK
Silk Sonic has “graciously, humbly and sexually” withdrawn his album from Grammy consideration.
Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak released their record ‘An Evening with Silk Sonic’ in November last year, meaning it would be eligible for the 2023 ceremony, but after their track ‘Leave the Door Open” won Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song at the 2022 event, they aren’t looking for more recognition.
Bruno told Rolling Stone magazine: “We really put everything on this record, but Silk Sonic would like to graciously, humbly and above all, sexually waive submitting our album this year.
“We hope we can celebrate with everyone a great year of music and join in the fun. Thank you for allowing Silk Sonic to thrive.
The ‘Uptown Funk’ hitmaker insisted he and his collaborator would be “crazy to ask for anything more” after their previous success.
He added: “Andy and I, and everyone who worked on this project, won when the world answered ‘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 for honoring us at last year’s ceremony.
“Thank you to everyone who has supported this project and championed it.”
Bruno previously explained that making the record during the COVID-19 lockdown gave him and Anderson time to perfect the album.
He said: “[We] did the research, to get the good stuff, down to the skins on Andy’s drums. I never realized until this album how important the right pick was. Well calibrated strings. All that kind of science stuff.
