Silk Sonic – Skate | Lyrics Meaning & Song Review


The adventures of Silk Sonic continue with their second single “Skate”. The Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak saga, known as Silk Sonic, is here to bring back the vibes of well-being and put talent back into music. On this track, Silk Sonic brings some serious summer vibes and takes us back to the good old 70s when everyone was on skates in the streets.

Silk Sonic announced his collaborative journey a few months ago with his first single “Leave the Door Open”. The song was exceptionally well received by fans and critics alike. Bruno Mars commented that “@AndersonPaak and I put our hearts and souls into these songs.” All of these songs will make up Silk Sonic’s debut studio album, “An Evening with Silk Sonic”.

Much like the first single, “Skate” is a vibrant and fluid track about appreciating the women in their lives. Roller skates represented a time when the world was much more “free” and “relaxed” than it is today. All the people seemed happier and freer in one way or another. Almost coming out of a 2 year lockdown of a global pandemic, this song is a breath of fresh air for all of our depressed souls.

Meaning of “Skate” lyrics and review of the song

Silk Sonic songs aren’t the most cryptic lyrics out there. Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak keep the words simple to get the message across.

In the song’s first verse, Anderson .Paak courts the ladies with a soft, smooth vocals. He calls his lady a “hundred dollars” in a world full of dimes. If looking good was a crime, he says she would be locked in a tower like Rapunzel from the German fairy tale. It is quite clear that the singer is in love with the girl, and he is not afraid to admit it.

In Bruno Mars’ second verse, he follows suit. He admires his wife’s wind dancing in the breeze as she skates with her friends. He also sings that she sings better than the barbecue and the barbecue smells good. It’s also an instant mood enhancer

The premise of the song is that both singers enjoy watching their partners move around on their skates as they do what they do best – singing and beating the drums.

Oh, skate for me baby
Come on, slide your way
