Silk Sonic—the super-duo side project of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak—have shared a new collaboration. It’s called “Skate.” The track arrives with a vintage visual directed by Mars and Florent Dechard. Watch .Paak and Mars play drums as ladies skate around them in the clip below.
“Skate” is the second-ever single from Silk Sonic, who’ve been taking their time on rolling out their (alleged) debut album. Their first song, “Leave the Door Open,” was released in March. When they performed it at this year’s BET Awards—their third award show performance of the song this year after the Grammys and iHeartRadio Music Awards—.Paak joked about the song’s ubiquity. “Do y’all wanna hear a new song off the album,” he asked the crowd. “Nah, we’re gonna run it back, let’s go! ’Cause we still in the top 10! You feel me? And until that day, we gonna do this again and again and again!” Then they performed it again.
