Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak - the duo behind Silk Sonic in 2021 - will not be in the running for any awards at the 2023 Grammys. 

The band, who achieved major success with their debut song - 'Leave The Door Open', has decided not to submit their debut album, 'An Evening With Silk Sonic', for consideration. 

Bruno revealed the news in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. The duo has already won several awards. 'Leave The Door Open' bagged four awards - including 'Song of the Year' - at the 2022 Grammys.

"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,” Bruno told the publication. 

“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," he added.

"We’d be crazy to ask for anything more. 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."
