Months before P!nk‘s “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” hit airwaves, what would be the singers first single from The Truth About Love was played for us in the VH1 office. Instantly we’d all concurred it was a certified banger. The type of lead that would put P!nk in a well deserved No. 1 spot. Low and behold after being in the business 13 years and six albums in P!nk has landed her first Billboard 200 No. 1 album. Billboard reports that according to Nielsen SoundScan The Truth About Love sold 280,000. Atop the charts is exactly where P!nk belongs.
This may be P!nk’s first number one, but it’s her sixth top 10 album. 2008’s Funhouse was close coming in at No. 2, but nothing’s sweeter than numero uno. The Truth About Love is this year’s third biggest debut behind only Justin Bieber’s Believe and Madonna’s MDNA. G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer presented by Kanye West copped the No. 2 spot behind P!nk impressively selling 205,000 units.
A toast is in order to P!nk, whose VH1 Storytellers episode debuts Tuesday, November 13 at 11pm ET/PT. Doesn’t matter when P!nk got to the coveted top spot. Bottom line: she got there.
