Anderson .Paak is undoubtedly all smiles today due to the sales from Silk Sonic’s hit album, An Evening With Silk Sonic.

.Paak’s Fan Favorites

On November 12th, fans of Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars got a delightful treat with the release of An Evening With Silk Sonic. Admittedly fans were growing impatient waiting for the album’s release. Nevertheless, the anticipation built with the release of each single: ‘Leave the Door Open’, ‘Skate,’ and ‘Smoking out the Window.’

So, upon release of An Evening with Silk Sonic, fans didn’t waste time procuring the album for their collection.

A Slight Distaste is Not Always a Bad Thing.

However, not everyone was bustling with satisfaction with the album. But there is, of course, a rational explanation.

Yahoo news correspondents are reporting,

“All over social media, folks were upset this highly anticipated meeting of funky minds only yielded nine cuts.”

Fans wanted more.

However, although fans initially appeared a little disheartened, they didn’t cease showing love.

And .Paak feels the warmth as album sales push the duo straight to the top.

.Paak is Celebrating

According to Hiphopdx,

“HITS Daily Double is reporting An Evening with Silk Sonic will debut at No. 2 this week with 102,000 total album-equivalent units earned.”

And that’s big news for .Paak.

Why? The album’s debut marks a historic win in his book.

Silk Sonics Roots

This is not  .Paak’s and Mar’s first collab. Some might not know this, but the pair did features together before joining as a silky-smooth duo. As a source notes,

“The veteran artists once toured together and collaborated on Chic’s ‘It’s About Time‘ and Paak’s ‘Ventura‘.”

But it wasn’t until the spring of this year the two decided to create a formal collaborative.

March 2021 marks the birth of Silk Sonic. And within a month of forming, the Duo was doing the thing. They were riding their melodic stylings straight to the top and into the hearts of fans.

According to

“Leave the Door Open” topped the Hot 100 in April” of that same year.”

Silk Sonic, Legends in the Making

One can say the move to unite formally was more than genius.

And the duo continues to please. They make creating hits look like a breeze.

Now current album sales are demonstrating to .Paak, what can happen when two greats come together. The sales have helped .Paak reach a new milestone.

“With the release of ‘An Evening with Silk Sonic,’ “Anderson .Paak notably received his highest first-week sales in his career.”

Turning Heads

When people stop and notice your efforts, you become sure you are doing something right.

And the word is, Silk Sonic is even getting nods of approval from hip hop legends.

Reportedly Ghost Face Killah is digging everything Silk Sonic is putting down. And he is super hype about the possibility of doing a collab with the Duo.

In his words,

“I wish I could get to them and talk to them and be like, ‘Yo let’s do this  s**t. Let’s do a six-song project just for the f*** of it.”

And so, with any luck, the pair will put Ghostface Killah on.

Today congratulations go out to these heavy hitters. And let’s keep the hits coming. Listen to the album below
