Silk Sonic, the duo comprised of Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars, have finally followed up their debut single “Leave the Door Open” with the new cut, “Skate.”

The new single clocks in at only three-and-a-half minutes — a tad shorter than its predecessor — but is arguably one of the most infectious musical offerings of the year. .Paak and Mars continue to take structural cues from the smooth tunes of the ’70s, adding layers of their harmonic vocals to pay homage to the one of music’s most influential decades. The track also arrives with an accompanying music video co-directed by Mars, Florent Dechard and Philippe Tayag, which sees Silk Sonic playing music to roller skaters as they show off their impressive choreography.

“Skate” arrives almost five months after the duo released “Leave the Door Open,” which went on to debut at No. 1. Silk Sonic is set to release their debut album, An Evening With Silk Sonic, later in the year.
