Going on a long hiatus didn't make Pink lose her touch. As soon as she released her new effort entitled "Beautiful Trauma" on October 13, the set earned her second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, racking up 408,000 equivalent album units in the first week of its release.
"Beautiful Trauma" also marked the biggest debut for a woman since Beyonce Knowles' "Lemonade" debuted at No. 1 with 652,000 units on May 14, 2016. In addition, the set has the biggest sales week among all albums since Drake's "Views" arrived with 852,000 units on May 21, 2016.
The fact that she managed to earn second No. 1 album might be boosted by how the 38-year old singer has never chased pop music trends and prefers to be honest and show her real feelings through her songs. For example, she talks about her temporary split with her husband Carey Hart in her song entitled "So What", resulting in the song becoming the most successful track in her album "Funhouse".
The "Just Give Me a Reason" hitmaker also did that in "Beautiful Trauma". For instance, instead of releasing an EDM song, which is currently in trend, she chose to release a calmer song "What About Us" that expressed her thoughts on the current social issues. In one of the lines, she talks about how someone becomes disillusioned with the political process.
A dominant live performer, Pink is set to embark on a world tour in 2018 in support of "Beautiful Trauma". The tour will kick off in Phoenix on March 1 and wrap up in Los Angeles on June 2.

Raised in Philadelphia not long after her birth on September 8, 1979 in Doylestown, Pennsylvania with the name Alecia Beth Moore, Pink has been familiar to music since she was merely a little child, a result of the influence her father, James Moore, had given her constantly through either his guitar lessons or plays of tunes from the likes of Bob Dylan and Don McLean as she grew up. Later also driven by the work of Madonna, Janis Joplin, Shirley Murdock, plus The Supremes, it really did not require such a long time for the girl to develop a profound interest in the field which led her to eagerly perform onstage whenever possible. A good offer then came from a local Philly DJ to provide back vocals for his rap group, School of Thought, at age 13 and nabbing this chance quickly, she delightfully found herself holding weekly guest appearances at the city's Club Fever. » more
