The silky smooth single “Leave the Door Open” introduces Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars as Silk Sonic, a name that perfectly describes the musical blend of both their artistry so perfectly. Named by Bootsy Collins, who will narrate their upcoming An Evening With Silk Sonic album, the duo said they don’t know how Collins got the name, but they’re rocking with it.
Produced by Mars and D’Mile, and written by Mars, .Paak, D’Mile, and Brody Brown, “Leave The Door Open” is the first single from their project. Silky and smooth, a homage to old school music with a modern twist. Both artists gave vocals and played instruments on the track.
“What you doin’? (What you doin’?), Where you at? (Where you at?)/ Oh, you got plans? (You got plans), Don’t say that (Shut your trap)/ I’m sippin’ wine (Sip, sip), In a robe (Drip, drip)/ I look too good (Look too good), To be alone (Woo, woo)/ My house clean (House clean), my pool warm (Pool warm)/ Just shaved, smooth like a newborn/ We should be dancin’, romancin’, In the east wing and the west wing/ Of this mansion, what’s happenin’?”
