Pink's biggest albums and songs on the Official Chart
01 February 2019 | By Admin

As Pink reveals she's working on her eighth studio album, we rank her biggest sellers so far.

For almost two decades, Pink has been steadily scoring an array of hits, building up an impressive back catalogue and sales to match.

She's aced phases of R&B, angry punky pop, attitude-packed revenge anthems, and heartfelt balladry, but despite the chameleon-like nature of her music career, she's always been consistent.

It's emerged studio album number 8 is on its way, as Pink posted a pic from the studio, so while we eagerly await its release, we looked at the story so far, to see how her albums – and their signature hits – have fared.

Missundaztood
Bridging the gap between her slick R&B debut Can't Take You Home and the empowerment and energy that would shape the rest of Pink's career, 2002's Missundaztood felt like a breath of fresh air and, at the time, a huge change for Pink. If it had come any later in her career it may well have derailed her, but lead single, confident smash Get The Party Started, and her first solo number 1 Just Like A Pill, ensured its success. Missundaztood peaked at 2, spawned three Top 10s and has sold an impressive 1.85 million across all formats, spending 27 consecutive weeks in the albums Top 10.

Top song: Just Like A Pill, on 517,000

I'm Not Dead
She certainly wasn't! Pink was taking no prisoners with with her fourth album, reassuring fans that even though she'd got married to motocross racer Carey Hart, she hadn't lost her edge. Blistering take on celeb culture Stupid Girls was first of the album's five Top 40 hits. Reaching Number 3 in 2006, I'm Not Dead is her second bestseller, with a whopping tally of 1.4 million.

Top song: Who Knew, on 520,000

Funhouse
I'm Not Dead's follow-up was Pink's breakup album, coming when her marriage to Carey Hart was on hiatus – they reunited soon after. Hart even appeared in the album's lead single So What, which became Pink's third Number 1, spending three weeks there in October 2008. Funhouse also has the honour of being Pink's first chart-topping album, spending six months in the Top 20 and producing four Top 40 singles. It's sold 1.29 million across all formats.

Top song: So What, on 829,000

Greatest Hits – So Far!!!
Many acts wait until their career has hit the skids before releasing a hits collection, but Pink made it clear she wasn't giving up – the "So Far" in the title offers a clue – and we think you'd agree she's made good on that promise. Leading off with the anthemic Raise Your Glass, Greatest Hits – So Far!!! went Top 5, and has sold 1.05 million across physical digital and streaming equivalent sales.

Top song: Raise Your Glass missed the Top 10 but still has combined sales of 672,000

The Truth About Love
On 907,000 sales, Pink's 2012 studio album spent a year in the Top 40, spawning four Top 20s, starting with Blow Me (One Last Kiss). Pink by now was well-known for showing off not just her vocal abilities but her physical dexterity, incorporating acrobatics into her performances, and this influenced her music. The Truth About Love peaked at 2.

Top song: Just Give Me a Reason, feat Nate Ruess, shifting 1.25 million across all formats. SPOILER: It's Pink's biggest song in the UK.

As for the rest of Pink's albums, 2003's Try This is on 554,000, 2017's Beautiful Trauma – her second Number 1 album – is next on 513,000, and that debut Can't Take Me Home rounds off her set on 470,000.

Pink's albums ranked by sales:

TITLE PEAK YEAR
1 MISSUNDAZTOOD 2 2002 1.85m
2 I'M NOT DEAD 3 2006 1.4m
3 FUNHOUSE 1 2008 1.29m

And shall we catch up on the songs while we're here?

Pink's biggest song in the UK may not have reached Number 1, but Just Give Me a Reason, with Nate Ruess, shifted 863,000 downloads, and racked up 38.6 million plays to be her all-time top.

Next up is Pink's most recent Top 10 and also her most streamed song: What About Us, which led off Beautiful Trauma, and notched up 70.2 million listens and 259,000 downloads. Pink's biggest chart-topper was her very first in 2001, but she wasn't alone: taken from the movie Moulin Rouge, this cover of Lady Marmalade featured Mya, Lil Kim, and Christina Aguilera, and is her biggest physical seller – 412,000 of you have a CD, tape, or record of this on your shelf, with a further 179,000 downloading it.

Another Number 1, So What, is next, with 602,000 downloads and 20.2m listens, while Raise Your Glass is Pink's biggest song not to make the Top 10 – thanks to featuring in movie Bridesmaids and being covered on Glee, the tune has 443,000 downloads and 22.7m streams

Among other notable tracks, Just Like A Pill (that first solo Number 10 has sold 200,000 physical copies, 188,000 downloads and amassed 13m plays, while Get the Party Started is on 294,000 physical (her second highest), 91,000 downloads and 10.6 million streams not bad for tracks that predate the digital era!

Just Like Fire, from the soundtrack of Alice Through the Looking-Glass, is on 463,000, Greatest Showman cover A Million Dreams ha salready scored Pink's debut hit There You Go just misses her Top 20, with a total tally of 204,000

I love getting these updates!

It’s such a shame Beautiful Trauma hasn’t shifted more copies but for this day and age it’s certainly been a success. George Ezra’s latest is the only artist album released since BT to sell more than it.

Good article but... she hasn't revealed that she's working on her next album (unless I've missed something while I've been away?!?)

Yes she posted that photo to instagram (which I shared in the 'Pink Updates' thread), but she never said what she was working on, it was just captioned 'Sessions'.

So it could've been anything, bonus tracks for a re-release or tour edition, a soundtrack, extra tracks for another greatest hits, you+me second album, or her next studio album, we have no idea.

I let them off with that one as it’s UK release wasn’t until 2002. But there is no excuse for Try This!

A Million Dreams in the top 20 already, awesome!! What About Us's total is incredible too.

Beautiful Trauma (the album) should be able to catch up to Try This at this rate.

Beautiful Trauma should overtake Try This by the end of this year.

Her album sales are so impressive.

Her single sales are great too. JGMAR always feels weird being her all time biggest hit though laugh.gif
