Remember that time Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars teamed up and became the musical duo we didn't know we needed? Well, it looks like one of them is having some regrets about their chosen partnership... Here are all of the hilarious details.

.Paak and Mars' An Evening with Silk Sonic was released on November 12 and quickly climbed its way to the top of the charts. Coincidentally, Taylor Swift's latest work, Red (Taylor's Version), became available the same day. Thanks to the singer's die-hard fans, her record has secured the number one spot on the US albums chart. And this small fact has Anderson rethinking his duo situation with Bruno.

"Looks like I linked up with the wrong pop star!" .Paak hilariously wrote. And he wasn't done there - the singer reached out to the chart's number 1 gal to make an offer. "Hey @taylorswift13 is your number still the same!?" he asked. "Lmk if you need help with 1989, I'm available! #ShakeItOff."

It didn't take long for .Paak's original collaborator to hear about his proposition. And it looks like the events got Bruno Mars in his feelings. "It's the betrayal for me," the 36-year-old wrote alongside a retweet of Anderson's message to Taylor.

But if anyone was worried that Mars actually felt betrayed, it soon became clear that the exchange was all in good fun. The That's What I Like performer showed off his humor - and photoshop skills - with a photo of Anderson edited into Taylor Swift's 1989 album cover. And that hilarious picture was all the Twitterverse needed to jump on board the Taylor-Anderson-Bruno collab train.

"Just saying....." one fan wrote alongside a photoshopped version of Sad Sonic, where Bruno's face is savagely replaced by Taylor's. And some Mars fans felt a bit of FOMO and got to work on creating a 1989 cover that featured all three of the talented icons. We love to see it.
