When you are presented with a perfectly good wheel, do you reinvent it? You do not. Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) were given the assignment of performing at BET’s Soul Train Awards. Obviously, the best way to pay homage to Soul Train’s height as well as keep their throwback style was to lovingly re-create the set of the old TV show. Not since the first Charlie’s Angels movie has the Soul Train set been so lovingly redone. Okay, also on Sherman’s Showcase. And the video for “Walk It Talk It.” Okay, honestly, the Soul Train set gets a lot of love. But it’s a good set! It deserves the accolades.
Silk Sonic performed two songs on the gorgeous little set: “Fly as Me” and “Smokin Out the Window.” The collab’s full album, An Evening With Silk Sonic, came out this month.
