Fortnite Brings Silk Sonic Duo Bruno Mars & Anderson Paak Into The Game

This week, Epic shared exciting music news about Grammy-nominated R&B duo Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak (a.k.a Silk Sonic). In partnership with Atlantic Records, Fortnite is bringing Silk Sonic into the game with a brand new radio station, Outfits based on their signature style, and a player tournament.

The Silk Sonic duo are long time Fortnite favorites – in September 2020, Anderson .Paak performed a ‘Spotlight Concert Series’ in the game, and in April 2021, Bruno Mars’ ‘Leave The Door Open’ emote came to Fortnite.

Listen to the New Fortnite Radio Station, ‘Icon Radio’ – live now!

  • Players can turn on ‘Icon radio’ inside cars and listen to tracks from ‘An Evening with Silk Sonic’ – with one and only Bootsy Collins as the radio host
  • The launch of ‘Icon Radio’ is an exciting new way Fortnite is bringing the latest music to its millions of players

About The Silk Sonic Outfits: (available from February 11, 11am AEDT)

  • The Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak Outfits are coming into the Fornite universe as the Silk Sonic Set, which also includes accessories based on each member of the duo:
    • Bust out a mic with the Sound Scepter Pickaxe (sold with the Bruno Mars Outfit), then wear it as a Back Bling when back on the beat of the path!
    • Skate around with the Freedom Wheels Emote
    • The outfits both include a reactive style…we won’t ruin the surprise

Compete in The ‘Silk Sonic Cup’ Tournament: (Monday February 7)

  • Players can compete in the Duos Silk Sonic Cup for a chance to unlock the Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak Outfits early, along with the Silk Sonic Spray for earning at least 8 points.

Epic Games is committed to continuing to bring exciting music experiences to Fortnite. We’ve had global stars coming into the game (Travis Scott, Ariana Grande, J Balvin, Marshmello), as well as break out stars with Soundwave Series (Hamaki, Tones and I).
