    (February 15, 2021) Classic R&B fans celebrated in 2021 with the emergence of the Bruno Mars / Anderson.Paak collabo, Silk Sonic. The group kept us grooving with their modern interpretation of classic soul, funk and disco sounds on their debut album An Evening With Silk Sonic.

    Now for Valentine's Day, Silk Sonic has issued a surprise single that further shows their love for 80s soul. "Love's Train" was a hit for ConFunkShun, a ballad that showed the group's versatility and became a Quiet Storm classic. Silk Sonic delivers a faithful interpretation of the song, with both Paak and Mars in great voice, and with a vibe that mirrors the now classic ConFunkShun joint.

    Check out this new version of "Love's Train," and then maybe go back and hear the original again, too.
