Silk Sonic drops second single ‘Skate’ from upcoming debut album
Silk Sonic’s ‘Skate’ was released with stunning visuals helmed by Bruno Mars and Florent Dechard as it entertained the listeners with almost the same vibe as ‘Leave the Door Open’. We see Bruno Mars on a Congo while Anderson takes over the guitar with his husky voice. The duo is backed by a band as they serenade the gorgeous ladies.
Speaking of lyrics, Anderson croons, “In a room full of dimes you would be 100 dollars/ If being fine was a crime, girl, they’d lock your lil’ fine a** up in a tower/ The way you move like you do/ Ooh it’s like you do it for a livin’/ Do a lil’ spin, do it again – sshhiiiii/ look like you playin’ for the win, OH BABY.” Whereas, Bruno Mars’ verse enters almost at the end of the song where he tries to impress the ladies with lyrics like, “Got your hair in the wind and your skin glistening/I can smell your sweet perfume/ Mmmm, ya smell better than a barbecue/ Oh, superstar is what you are/ I’m your biggest fan/ if you’re lookin’ for a man, suga, here I am.”
