Pink, ‘True Love’ Feat. Lily Allen – Song Review
‘The Truth About Love’ by Pink is proving to be a full-fledged hit machine, and there’s no sign of it stopping anytime soon. Leading off with the feisty, “typical Pink” track ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ before easing into the emotional, softer tones of ‘Try’ and ‘Just Give Me a Reason,’ the blush-hued songstress reconciles both ends of the continuum with her latest single, ‘True Love.’ And she does so with the company of the lovely Lily Allen!
‘True Love’ is a midtempo track that veers between ballad and pure pop ditty. There’s tinkling piano, and a “whoa-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh-oh” refrain that will be stuck in your head for days.
The lyrics are also pure Pink — feisty, snarky, slightly foul and a bit overgrown teenage angsty, but charming in their own way: “At the same time, I wanna hug you / I wanna wrap my hands around your neck / You’re an a–hole, but I love you.”
The song isn’t an all-out duet: Pink does about 90 percent of the heavy lifting here, and she does a fine job of it. However, Allen’s lovely lilting soprano appears in the bridge, and it’s a breath of fresh air. The song’s biggest sin is not utilizing the British chanteuse more.
