Silk Sonic introduced “Leave The Door Open” in March 2021 alongside an official music video directed by Mars and Florent Déchard, which won Best R&B Video and Best Editing at the 2021 MTV Music Video Awards. The track was followed by a hugely popular social media campaign, #LetSilkSonicThrive, which earned them a debut live performance at the GRAMMY Awards (plus a powerful tribute to Little Richard) followed quickly by iconic live sets at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and the BET Awards.
“Leave The Door Open” became Silk Sonic’s first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, spending two non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 and 18 consecutive weeks in the top 10. In the meantime, their infectious jingle co-written and performed for SelvaRey Rum amassed wide scale praise over the summer. The duo then coasted into their sophomore release of “Skate,” which saw them glide into a second top 10 hit on Billboards Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs as it debuted at No. 4 and began as the genre’s best-selling song of the week.
“Smokin Out The Window” arrived in November 2021. Following the vibey single, the duo released the critically acclaimed album, An Evening With Silk Sonic. The duo took home four awards at this year’s GRAMMYs. The were nominated for four records and swept their nominations with “Record of the Year,” “Song of the Year” and “Best R&B Song” for “Leave the Door Open” while the song tied with Jazmine Sullivan’s “Pick Up Your Feelings” for “Best R&B Performance.”
