P!nk Gives Us Something To Talk About With “Slut Like You”

by (@zaragolden)

For those of you who listened to “Try” and worried that P!nk may be going soft, fear not! This next snippet from The Truth About Love suggests quite the opposite, with a title even more suggestive than “Blow Me (One More Kiss)” and a bracing beat to match. In this preview clip, P!nk leads a “you’re not my little friend” that breaks free into yowled wooo-woooo’s and “wham bam thank you ma’am”‘s, and makes the provocative claim that:  “I’m gonna let you know the truth,” she sings, “I’m a slut like you.” Let’s get this Truth About Love party stated, then, shall we?

It’s hard to say, with just this 45-second snippet, what exactly”Slut Like You” is about or who it’s for — a warning for an old flame’s new “friend”? An empowered promise to keep pace with a less than loyal lover? — but we are sure it’ll be a topic of conversation when it drops in full with Truth About Love next week. P!nk is ever strong-willed woman, and this song will sound plenty at home on our party mixes, but reclaiming of the once negative term “slut” seems likely to be thrown into the conversation around the use of “bitch” in music that’s currently at a rolling boil. Is her embracing of the once negative term empowering? Or is she doing herself and other women a disservice?

And if we are lucky, P!nk will share her thinking behind this proactive new track when she lays it all down during her VH1 Storytellers session, set to air November 12th.
