Surprise! Ahead of their Las Vegas residency, Silk Sonic released a new single on Valentine's Day. Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak's sultry new song is a cover of Con Funk Shun's "Love's Train," but with the duo's own soulful flair added to it. "And if by chance, you let me just hold ya," Mars sings on the track, also titled "Love's Train." "I'm down on my knee, I wanna please you, baby / Ooh, I'll be your righteous lover." .Paak adds: "If you are that special lover / And love keeps you tied to another / That's the way it goes on love's train."

Silk Sonic is set to begin their slate of live Vegas performances — named after their debut album, "An Evening With Silk Sonic" — on Feb. 25, wrapping up on April 29. The duo recently won international group of the year at the 2022 BRIT Awards and was also added as in-game skins to Fortnite. .Paak is also coming off his surprise pop-up during the 2022 Super Bowl halftime show.
