Silk Sonic, the collaborative project between Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, have won Record of the year for their song “Leave the Door Open.” They beat ABBA, Olivia Rodrigo, Justin Bieber, Doja Cat and SZA, and Jon Batiste. Billie Eilish, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Brandi Carlile, and Lil Nas X were also among the nominees. During their acceptance speech, Anderson .Paak joked about trying to stay humble while “sweeping” their categories and Mars casually smoked a cigarette.

After making their live debut at the 2021 Grammys in March, the duo released their first album An Evening with Silk Sonic in November. “Leave the Door Open” also won Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance, and Best R&B Song at tonight’s ceremony.
