P!nk has a new reason to “raise her glass,” and it’s not because her baby started to talk.
She strikes again with her new album “The Truth About Love,” which debuted Sept.18. The album’s 16 tracks feature her charismatic voice and edgy tunes, topped with some interesting lyrics. Her characteristic musical style combines punk rock, pop and R&B, and shows itself in each of her songs in the album.
P!nk begins with the angry ballad “Are We All We Are,” which gives listeners a taste of the satisfying flavor of her album. Next comes her hit single “Blow Me (One Last Kiss).” Even the title reveals the humorous and edgy approach she takes to the music.
One notable characteristic of her album is the number and type of collaborations she includes. She slows things down a bit with her track “Just Give Me a Reason” feat. Fun.’s Nate Ruess. But, the tempo picks up again with the upbeat “True Love” feat. Lily Rose Cooper.
She also collaborates with rapper Eminem on “Here Comes the Weekend.” The song’s catchy melody, excitingly angry tone and thick beat will surely catapult the song’s popularity. While Eminem does rap in the song, his addition won’t be the sole reason for the song’s success.
P!nk also includes some memorable lyrics on her album, which are sure to draw it apart from other albums.
“Oh, you want the truth? The truth about love is it’s nasty and salty/it’s regret in the morning/it’s the smelling of armpits/It’s wings and songs and trees and birds/it’s all the poetry that you’ve ever heard,” P!nk says in “The Truth about Love.”
P!nk finishes off her album with “Timebomb,” a generically P!nk-styled song right down to the angst-ridden chorus and a melody that you’ll find impossible to get out of your head.
“The Truth about Love” is merely a tribute to her increasingly superb performance, proving her music only gets better with time. The album is sure to be a hit, for die-hard P!nk fans and regular music-lovers alike.
