In 2000, Alecia Moore released her first album, "Can't Take Me Home" under her professional name of Pink. Although the album was a smash, selling five million copies across the globe and producing two top ten pop hits, Pink was not completely happy.
Her record label was trying to model her image after all of the other young pop darlings that were around at that time but Pink was not at all interested. She wanted to be taken seriously as an artist and create the type of music she wanted to make.
She met with Linda Perry, formerly with the rock band, 4 Non Blondes, and together they wrote the songs for her follow-up album, "Missundaztood". The album was filled with more personal and harder edged music but her record label, LaFace wasn't sure that it would work since Pink's first claim to fame was in the pop/r&b market. Luckily, the label agreed to release the album and it became a huge hit, receiving critical praise, four hit singles and selling over thirteen million copies world wide.
Now, after ten years and five albums, Pink has just released a collection of her hit songs, "Greatest Hits... So Far!!!" which features two new songs. One song, "Raise Your Glass" is already a top ten hit but the other, "Fucking Perfect" is also good but might have some difficulty getting radio airplay.
This is a great song that was a hit for Pink from her debut album but was left off of her hits collection:
"Some Girls" - Pink
Pink has always made fun and wacky music videos and she has not disappointed with her latest for the song, "Raise Your Glass":
