Pink – Sober
Alecia Beth Moore (born September 8, 1979), known professionally as Pink (often stylized as P!nk), is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.
She was signed to her first record label with original R&B girl group, Choice, in 1995. The label, LaFace Records, saw great potential in Pink, offering her a solo deal. Choice disbanded in 1998.
Pink rose to prominence as an artist with her debut solo album Can’t Take Me Home (2000). It was certified double-platinum in the United States and spawned two US Billboard Hot 100 top-ten songs: “There You Go” and “Most Girls”. She gained further recognition with the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack, “Lady Marmalade”, which gave Pink her first Grammy Award, as well as her first number-one single in the US.
Pink took more artistic control and pursued a pop rock direction for her second album, Missundaztood (2001). It sold more than 12 million copies worldwide and yielded three US top-ten singles, “Get the Party Started”, “Don’t Let Me Get Me”, and “Just Like a Pill”.
Pink’s third album, Try This (2003), generated considerably lower sales, but earned her the Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
She revived her popularity with her fourth and fifth studio albums, I’m Not Dead (2006) and Funhouse (2008), with the latter containing her second US number-one hit, “So What”. Pink concluded the first decade of her career with the compilation album Greatest Hits… So Far!! (2010), which featured “Fuckin’ Perfect” and her third US number-one single, “Raise Your Glass”.
Her sixth studio album, The Truth About Love (2012), debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and spawned the top-ten singles “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)”, “Try”, and “Just Give Me a Reason”, with the latter becoming her fourth US number-one single.
In 2014, Pink recorded a collaborative album, Rose Ave., with Canadian musician Dallas Green under a folk music duo named You+Me. In 2017, her seventh studio album, Beautiful Trauma, was released, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200. The album produced the successful singles “What About Us” and “Beautiful Trauma”.
Recognized for her acrobatic performances, Pink has sold over 40 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide, making her one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
