Bruno Mars/Anderson .Paak withdrawal from Grammys

After walking away with four Grammys in April, the pair known as Silk Sonic says it won’t submit any entries for next year’s Grammy Awards.

Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak say they have pulled their album An Evening with Silk Sonic from consideration.

“We truly put our all on this record, but Silk Sonic would like to gracefully, humbly and most importantly, sexually, bow out of submitting our album this year,” Mars said in a statement. “We hope we can celebrate with everyone on a great year of music and partake in the party. Thank you for letting Silk Sonic thrive.”

The duo won the prize for Record of the Year and Song of the Year for Leave the Door Open this year. They also won in the categories of Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song.

“Andy and I, and everyone that worked on this project, won the moment the world responded to Leave The Door Open, Everything else was just icing on the cake,” Mars said to Rolling Stone. “We thank the Grammys for allowing us to perform on their platform — not once but twice — and awarding us at last year’s ceremony. We’d be crazy to ask for anything more.”

Some speculated Silk Sonic this year would have also earned nominations for their song Smokin Out the Window, according to Vulture.
