BRUNO MARS and Anderson.Paak have announced a release date for their collaborative album, An Evening With Silk Sonic.
The album will be available across all digital streaming platforms on November 12, 2021.
What is Silk Sonic?
Silk Sonic is the banner of the Bruno Mars and Anderson.Paak duo. The duo originally formed in 2017, but as a joke. The official announcement of the duo’s band was made in February 2021.
Silk Sonic’s debut single is Leave The Door Open, which was released on March 5, 2021.
On October 8, which is Bruno’s 36th birthday, he announced that Silk Sonic’s debut album, called An Evening With Silk Sonic, will be released on November 12.
The album will include two songs already released by the duo, Leave The Door Open, and Skate. None of the album’s other song title have been released as of yet.
What is Bruno Mars’ Ethnicity?
Bruno’s father, Peter Hernandez, is half Puerto Rican and half Ashkenazi Jewish (from Ukraine and Hungary).
His mother, Bernadette San Pedro Bayot, was Filipina, with some Spanish ancestry.
Bruno was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii.
What’s Bruno Mars’ birth name?
Bruno was born as Peter Gene Hernandez. His father began calling him Bruno at the age of two, because he looked like the professional wrestler, Bruno Sammartino.
Bruno adopted the nickname as his stage name, and added Mars because “I felt like I didn’t have no pizzazz, and a lot of girls say I’m out of this world, so I was like I guess I’m from Mars.”
It has also been reported that Bruno added Mars to his stage name to avoid being stereotyped as a Latino artist by the music industry.
Mars recalled that he faced a lot of pressure to perform Latin music, and other genres he was not interested in. He was accused of trying to hide his ethnicity, but he denied this in a Billboard feature. “I never once said I changed my last name to hide the fact that I’m Puerto Rican,” he said. Why would I f***** say that? Who are you fooling? And why would anyone say that? That’s so insulting to me, to my family.”
