Silk Sonic will come to Fortnite, i.e Bruno Mars alongside his Grammy-nominated R&B partner Anderson .Paak. will make an appearance on Fortnite with Icon Radio Station.

The latest collaboration between Epic Games and Atlantic Records in a press release announced the launch of the new Icon Series. The latest addition will allow players to purchase new in-game outfits and listen to tracks from Silk Sonic on a new in-vehicle radio station.

The new station is called Icon Radio, which refers to the branding Fortnite gives to real-world figures. We already have witnessed something similar with the earlier collaborations involving Ariana Grande, Neymar Jr., Ninja. Funk star Bootsy Collins will host the station and feature other popular tracks from Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak.Silk Sonic coming to ‘Fortnite’ with Icon Radio Station_2

Bruno Mars when asked by Fortnite what sort of an outfit he would want for the game. He asked, “Are CGI muscles off the table?’ They said ‘no.’ I said ‘deal.’ I’ll see you on the Island.”

About Bruno CGI being given muscles, Anderson .Paak said, he was in it would help, so he was ok with it. 

According to Nate Nanzer, VP of global partnerships at Epic Games, “Bruno and Anderson are long-time Fortnite favorites, and we’re thrilled to welcome them to Fortnite‘s Icon Series. The Icon Series is a celebration of the most dynamic figures in culture — Silk Sonic’s entry will allow players to express themselves as the iconic duo with reactive signature style Outfits and accessories and to discover new music through the new ‘Icon Radio’ station.”

Fortnite will be hosting the new Icon Radio station which is the first of its kind. Players will be able to turn on the radio while in cars and enjoy tracks from ‘An Evening With Silk Sonic‘. Silk Sonic coming to ‘Fortnite’ with Icon Radio Station_1
