Truly effervescent, talk about that 70s nostalgia in “Skate” from multi-platinum Grammy Award winning artists, Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak, aka Silk Sonic. They roll right from the past into their new summertime smash. This set is filled with exciting interludes of vocals, strings, horns, and thumping drums that are sure to make you dance or skate.
“Skate” is paying so much homage to R&B, Soul and Funk legends from the past, and we’re here for it. Reminiscent of “Brick House” by the Commondores, to the feel of Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes “Where Are All My Friends,” to “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” by McFadden & Whitehead and the list goes on, these vibrations can be felt throughout the track. Whatever vibes your soul is channeling from yesterday to today, this set will leave you in good spirits. It’s the perfect follow up to “Leave The Door Open!”
This instant classic roller skating hit is the second single from the highly anticipated album An Evening With Silk Sonic, which Mars and Paak toyed with the release in 2021. It’s refreshing to see these two visuals focus on the artists, and all that the ambience that R&B music encompasses. “Skate” stands to be the modern day contagious cult classic like “Bounce, Roller Skate” by Vaughan Mason & Crew. No matter your age, “Skate” will have grandma and your baby cousin jamming at the next family cookout.
