Bruno Mars is startin’ a love train…
To commemorate Valentine’s Day, the 36-year-old part-Puerto Rican Grammy-winning singer and his Silk Sonic group mate Anderson .Paak have released their all-new cover of funk and R&B group Con Funk Shun‘s 1982 classic “Love’s Train.”
“This is one of Silk Sonic’s favorite songs originally recorded by the group Con Funk Shun,” announced Mars. “Every time @anderson._paak and I get behind instruments we play this. We love this song so much we wanted to sing it for y’all.”
And .Paak wrote in an Instagram post of his own, “We wanna dedicate this to that special someone!”
The new “Love’s Train” cover comes months after Silk Sonic released their highly anticipated debut studio album, An Evening With Silk Sonic, on November 12.
The album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
The album’s lead single, “Leave the Door Open,” spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
