Bruno Mars withdraws Silk Sonic from the Grammys

Bruno Mars announced that Silk Sonic, an R&B duo composed of himself and Anderson .Paak, has withdrawn their album “An Evening With Silk Sonic” from consideration for the 2023 Grammy Awards. He told Rolling Stone. “We truly put everything into this album, but Silk Sonic is elegant, humble and most importantly sexually, we want to give up our album submissions this year,” Mars said. “I hope to be able to celebrate and party with everyone in a good year of music. Thank you for allowing Silk Sonic to thrive.” The album’s lead single, “Leave Door Open,” was released in April 2021 and has won four Grammy nominations at the 2022 Awards, including Album and Single of the Year. The album was released last November and not only deserves a 2023 award following last year, but almost all predictors expected it to be the best contender for Album of the Year. But Mars says. Andy, me, and everyone involved in this project won the moment the world responded, ‘Keep the door open’. Everything else was just on top of the cake,” he says. “Thanks to the Grammys for allowing me to perform on the platform twice, not just once and for giving me an award at last year’s awards ceremony.” Grammy nominations are not automatic. Recordings must be submitted by the representative (usually the artist’s record label) and is a revocation if the artist does not wish to submit the music. Overwhelming Grammy favorite Mars is likely to respond to criticism that his “24K Magic” album and related single won all six nominations, including 2018 Album, Song, and Record of the Year, winning a Grammy Award. . Featuring entries from two of the world’s biggest hip-hop artists, Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar. That year, Jay received eight nominations, but surprisingly never won one. Lamar got five, but all of them either in hip-hop or video. Jay’s shutdown in particular led to a fierce backlash against the Grammys. Later that year, Lamar’s “DAMN.” The album went on to win Nobel Prizes. Mars may have blocked a potential backlash before starting. It can be argued that Mars and Silk Sonic’s decisions are very wise, as Lamar and Beyonce are both frontrunners for the 2023 nominations, not to mention Adele. move. Mars and .Paak as a duo sang “777” and “Hot Music” from this year’s Grammy Awards albums, held special private after-party and performed with Eve’s “Let Me Blow Ya Mind”, Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” and “Hot In Here” by Nelly. Artists like Drake and Weeknd have turned down recording submissions that may have received nominations in the past due to dissatisfaction with past awards or nominations. During his 2019 Grammy Awards speech, Drake allegedly referred to the Grammy voting process, supposedly “We play with opinion. It’s a sport, not a sport based on facts.” The single “Blinding Lights” was a shocking disregard for the hit songs of the past decade by the 2021 Grammy nomination committee. A few weeks after the show, the Grammys announced the removal of an anonymous internal committee that previously determined the finalists in most categories. Neither Drake nor Weeknd submitted recordings for the 2022 awards ceremony. The Grammy Award representative did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment. Grammy nominations will be announced on Tuesday, November 15th. The 65th Annual Grammy Awards will take place on February 2nd at the Arena in Los Angeles. May 5, 2023.
