Pink’s ‘The Truth About Love’ Becomes Her First No. 1 Album
Congrats to Pink, whose ‘The Truth About Love’ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 charts. While Billboard won’t issue the official tally until Wednesday morning (Sept. 26), the ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ singer tweeted the good news, reminding us that this is her first stint atop the leaderboard! Woo-hoo, girl! You deserve it.
It’s hard to believe that an artist with Pink’s level of success and longevity in the music business had yet to score a No. 1 on the Top 200 sales chart. It’s long overdue, yes, but better late than never. She edged out some pretty stiff competition in the form of the Kanye West/G.O.O.D. Music ‘Cruel Summer’ set, as well as the Killers’ ‘Battle Born.’ Carly Rae Jepsen also dropped ‘Kiss’ after owning airwaves all summer with ‘Call Me Maybe.’
Below is Pink’s tweet, expressing her gratitude and her love for her fans for supporting her this long and for propelling her to No. 1. We at PopCrush are beyond stoked for her.
Check out our thorough review of ‘The Truth About Love.’ If any recent album deserves a top spot, it’s definitely this one. We bet little Willow Sage is proud of her own proud mama!
After 13 years and 6 records, I’m beyond floored to have a #1 album in the US. I’m grateful for all the ears and all the hearts. Thank you!!
