The music tracking statistics website recently revealed that the collaborative album from Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak has been very successful on the Swedish streaming service.
Mars and .Paak initially formed their supergroup while on tour together in 2017 as a joke according to a Rolling Stone profile on the duo in August.
Their debut album has appeared on multiple end of year - 'best of' lists, including Hot Press' which you can view in our 2021 annual, available now.
In our review, Pat Carty dubbed it the R&B album of the year, writing "It only takes just over a half an hour – scientifically proven as the perfect length for any album – to get from 'Intro', the arse-moving statement of intent, featuring quite possibly the funkiest cat who ever lived, the “blaster of the universe” Bootsy Collins, to the our-love-is-so-all-powerful-it’ll-kick-gravity’s-arse getting it on in the sky of ‘Blast Off’ with its Eddie Hazel/Ernie Isley guitar break.
That’s thirty-one minutes that will make your year immeasurably better. Sexy, groovy, funny, funky, and the Soul/R&B album of the year. No contest."
