FUCKIN’ PERFECT: P!NK TOPS iTUNES CHART

Although P!nk has always been successful in the states (minus a small misstep with “Try This”) she has really come into her own recently… 10 years into her career. Recently met with her most critical and commercial success to date, P!nk hit #1 on iTunes today with “Fuckin’ Perfect,” the second single from her greatest hits album. It’s rare for greatest hits singles to do well, period, but it’s almost unheard for a second single to reach the top of the charts. Following in the footsteps of the first greatest hits single, “Raise Your Glass,” could “Fuckin’ Perfect” also top the Hot 100? Only time will tell, but a few key elements have led to P!nk’s recent success.

In the case of “Fuckin’ Perfect,” a socially relevant and well made video gave the song a bump on iTunes. Being a fan of music videos in general, I like this. It proves that videos aren’t a dying breed and if done correctly can promote a song. Also, I’d like to revisit P!nk’s performance of “Glitter In the Air” at the Grammys this year. This, combined with her “Funhouse Tour” in the states, finally showcased P!nk as a multi-talented artist and performer. Cuing us in on what the rest of the world already knew, P!nk is the real deal. She can sing and also put on a show, a combination rarely possessed by many artists. The “Greatest Hits…So Far!!!” era is providing a perfect break for pregnant P!nk, while still satisfying fans’ appetites for new music and maintaining her relevancy. Good looking out, P!nk.
