Bruno Mars isn’t too proud to beg, despite selling millions of records and winning countless awards.
The singer is requesting that his band, Silk Sonic, be added to the Grammy’s lineup at the last minute.
The “24K Magic” singer revealed earlier this month that he and Anderson.Paak are working on a Silk Sonic album. Their first song, “Leave the Door Open,” was released on Friday and will feature on the duo’s upcoming collaboration album.
After the Recording Academy announced the lineup for the upcoming award show, including Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Megan Thee Stallion, and John Mayer, Mars took to Twitter to request that the lineup be changed.
According to Bruno, Silk Sonic will adhere to all safety protocols and even joked that they are willing to audition for the role.
He went on to say that the duo “hasn’t been able to play in a while” and that they “just want to sing.”
Mars told organizers that “as many covid tests as we need” will be conducted.
“I promise we won’t be extra. We just really want a gig again. I hope you’ll consider this request and give us the opportunity to shine. Love, Silk Sonic.”
Fans are likely to be surprised that the artist is begging to be added as an addition on the Grammy’s since his 2016 album, “24k Magic” earned him an album of the year, a record of the year for the title track, and at the 2018 Grammy’s he won song of the year for “That’s What I Like.”
