Yeh she's done so well probably because she isn't 'run of the mill'.

On Britney I think she had a 5 year period where she was huge but really lost it basically after 2004. It's her name and marketability/celebrity that keeps her in the public eye - looking back tho Pink has had a much better career/discography. But I guess we are getting more into opinion here than fact.

I'd disagree with that. I think her music has become very run of the mill. She was a lot more interesting musically in her earlier career. But I think ever since 2008, she's been churning out MOR pop/pop-rock and never really straying from that sound.

I agree with whoever said she's never been seen as a top tier artist despite her continued success. I think in her early career, she was always overshadowed by the likes of Britney and Christina - they were the two pop heavyweights at the turn of the century. They both claimed instant success with their début singles and albums while Pink made a slow start with hers - it was only when 'Get the Party Started' and Missundaztood were released that she properly took off. Even on 'Lady Marmalade', Christina was given the best part over Pink and similarly Pink wanted 'Beautiful' but Linda Perry found the song too personal to give away yet gave it to Christina shortly after. And I guess these days, despite her commercial success, Pink is now overshadowed by the likes of GaGa, Rihanna, Katy and Beyonce.

The reason I think she's overshadowed because she isn't run of the mill but agree with your point about her current recent releases being made for radio.

I love that this list contains a great mix of tracks from throughout her career. One of the few acts to have had a pretty steady run of success over her 15 years. Pretty impressive!!

I just wish the mighty God is a DJ was given a look in!

Pink's Official Top 20 biggest songs
16 August 2017 | By Justin Myers

We count down Pink's all-time biggest selling and most streamed hits.

It's more than 17 years since Pink scored her first UK hit with punchy debut There You Go.

She's changed her sound and her look numerous times, but she's been fairly consistent when it's come to success.

She's had 28 UK Top 40s, including 18 Top 10s and three Number 1s, but when it comes to shifting your actual copies and those plays on streaming services, what's her top song?

Before we go hard with the Top 20, here are some highlights:

Lady Marmalade
Her first chart-topper, Pink joined forces with Mya, Christina Aguilera and Lil Kim for the Moulin Rouge soundtrack.

This cover has been a hit a couple of times before, and in a way this was Pink's farewell to the slick R&B sound of her debut album Can't Take Me Home – she was soon to reinvent herself on next single Get The Party Started with a more bolshy, rocky sound. Pink's version of Lady Marmalade has sold 584,000 copies and racked up 11.3 million streams since we began counting in 2014, to finish as her third biggest song overall.

Just Like A Pill
Pink's first chart-topper all by herself, Just Like A Pill was the perfect tune for anyone who'd ever felt like telling someone to sod off. It knocked Atomic Kitten off Number 1 in September 2002 to spend a week at the top. It's sold 378,000 copies and achieved 6.5 million plays in the last couple of years – but, perhaps surprisingly, it doesn't make Pink's ultimate Top 5!

So What
So What, Number 1 in 2008, is Pink's best selling chart-topper. Over 619,000 of you have bought what turned out to be Pink's most recent Number 1 – but we're sure another is on its way. Those sales and 8.9 million streams help So What to be Pink's all-time runner-up biggest song.

Raise Your Glass
Raise Your Glass, which led Pink's 2010 greatest hits collection, is her biggest selling non-Top 10. It's sold 440,000 copies despite reaching only Number 13 – thanks in part, no doubt, to the song featuring on the second series of Glee in 2011. 9.6 million streams lift it to be her fourth biggest tune.

Just Give Me A Reason
It's perhaps fitting that the top song on Pink's countdown never actually made it to the top of the Official Singles Chart – although it had a good go.

Just Give Me A Reason, which featured fun lead singer Nate Ruess, spent 11 weeks inside the Top 10, two of which at Number 2. It was held off, however, in the first week by a surprise return to the charts by TV presenters Ant & Dec. After performing their 1994 classic Let's Get Ready To Rhumble on their Saturday Night Takeaway show, the track shot to Number 1, finishing just 5,000 copies ahead of poor Pink and Nate.

It didn't make it to Number 1, but it has shifted over 850,000 copies and racked up almost 21 million listens to make it Pink's biggest song.

Just Like Fire
Thanks to being her only Top 40 hit so far to be released since streaming started counting towards the Official Chart, Pink's most streamed tune is not one of her newest, but Just Like Fire, from Alice In Wonderland. The song reached 19 in June 2016, with 22.4 million plays and 158,000 sales to date

Pink's Official Top 20:

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
4 GREATEST HITS - SO FAR 5 2010 1.05m
5 THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE 2 2012 907k
6 TRY THIS 3 2004 554k
7 BEAUTIFUL TRAUMA 1 2017 513k
8 CAN'T TAKE ME HOME 13 2000 470k

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

Those album sales are so good. Her worst seller would have been a huge success on those sales in today’s climate.

I love that Who Knew (her best song by far) has climbed 10-7 since the 2016 list and Family Portrait has also gone 19-17 wub.gif

Additionally on the 2016 list only her Top 4 had sold more than 430k, but today her entire Top 11 has sold more than that!

I believe the 2016 is pure sales and doesn't include streaming. Still impressive nevertheless.

Amazed to see "What About Us" so high! Shouldn't have any issue passing 1 million. Happy to see "Beautiful Trauma" and "Million Dreams" make the top 20 as well. I hope her next era will deliver another bunch of hits! It's been great to see how consistently successful P!nk has been over the years. Also I didn't realise Beautiful Trauma had crossed the 500k mark! Hopefully it'll manage to cross 600k at some point. Her tour dates this year may help boost its sales a little.

I know this reply is old but I couldn't disagree more. Pink is very much seen as top tier, it is just she is less of a celebrity (by choice) than others.

When it comes to music and interest in her as an artists those album sales show she is every bit top tier. I think far too many confuse the celebrity of certain artists with them being as big as artists.

I totally agree with this. Pink has been a top tier act since Misundaztood and only got more so with time. She is a private person, and doesn't use controversy for her career so her life isn't splashed in the tabloids like Madonna, Britney, Beyonce, Rihanna, Gaga etc. She's never done the celebrity marriage, the power couple, the drug abuse, the breakdown, the overt sexuality for attention etc. You can be top tier as a musician without all the drama and the evidence is in her sales and tours.

I agree as well. P!nk wouldn't get the kind of radio support she gets if she wasn't top tier. Her tours are absolutely massive as well and her Beautiful Trauma tour looks like it's going to gross more than $200 million and become her most successful tour yet once it finishes later this year.

In case anyone doesn't know - Pink is to get The BRIT Award for 'Outstanding Contribution To Music' Award at The BRITS.

She is the first Non-UK Female to get it and the first Solo Female to do so.

It means that she has been awarded it, when even Madonna never was...

I've seen reaction to this this morning and of course it is silly stans crying why not Kylie or Madonna. My issue is why a non Brit is getting one at all? Surely we have an artist who is deserving of the award.

It just seems really short sighted because now every international act who can afford to buy the award or whose record label puts pressure on will be getting it.

Good point actually, let's give it to Sophie Ellis-Bextor.

As huge a Pink fan as I am, I think it's certainly unfair for her to get the award over Kylie or Madonna who have had much longer careers. Also agree with the point about her being a non-Brit!
