Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars’ Silk Sonic team-up has been a golden opportunity for the duo. In addition to topping the Billboard Hot 100 with “”Leave the Door Open,” their An Evening With Silk Sonic LP is expected to debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 next week.
Now, they’re extending that magic with their own radio show.
On Wednesday (November 17), the men of Silk Sonic took to their social media accounts to announce their new limited show on Apple Music titled An Evening With Silk Sonic Radio. In the trailer, fans see Anderson and Bruno chilling in the studio as they chop it up about music.
“Excited to announce our brand new show on @AppleMusic, An Evening With #SilkSonic,” the duo wrote on Twitter. “Tune-in for the first episode tonight at 7pm PT!”

According to Apple Music’s description of the radio show, “the pair feature Silk Sonic-inspired sets of all their favorite records, ranging from old-school hits to R&B jams, Hip Hop, funk, disco and everything in between.”
An Evening With Silk Sonic Radio will have a four-episode run, with a replay of Wednesday night’s inaugural episode available on Apple Music. Silk Sonic ran through an hour of their favorite songs from the Jackson 5, Jerry Butler, Con Funk Shun, The Dramatics and more.
On top of launching a new radio show with his soul brother, Anderson .Paak is set to celebrate a huge career milestone in the coming days. An Evening With Silk Sonic is projected to debut at No. 2 on the Billboard with 102,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, marking the highest-charting album and biggest sales week of his career.
His previous best was 2019’s Ventura, which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 while racking up 55,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
Anderson .Paak took to Twitter earlier this week to celebrate his impending achievement by poking fun at Silk Sonic’s album falling short of the No. 1 spot, which is expected to go to Taylor Swift’s monstrous Red (Taylor’s Version).
“Looks like I linked up with the wrong pop star!” he joked. “Hey @taylorswift13 is your number still the same!? Lmk if you need help with 1989, I’m available! #ShakeItOff.”
