P!nk Takes Us On A Journey Of Highs And Lows On New Album ‘Beautiful Trauma’: Stream

Recommended Posts

She's got some things to say.



Pink's seventh studio album Beautiful Trauma is exactly that.



The singer might seem like she has it all: fame, fortune, a steady marriage and two beautiful kids, but on Beautiful Trauma, Pink reveals there's more to her than meets the eye.

Pink kicked off the era with "What About Us," a mid-tempo sleepy power ballad that's social-political commentary on how tumultuous (and terrible) recent times have been. She quickly followed up with "Whatever You Want," a radio-friendly cut that will soundtrack her inevitable aerial performances quite perfectly. And despite her best efforts, "Revenge" also made the rounds. It features Eminem, and doesn't sound like how you'd expect it to – it's playful and, as she puts it, really "funny."

But there's some real sadness on Beautiful Trauma, as well. "Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken" is really heavy. "I will have to die for this I fear / There's rage and terror and there's sickness here," she sings over a somber piano. "I fight because I have to / I fight for us to know the truth."

And on "Secrets," P!nk gets vulnerable. "I let the walls come down / I let the monster out, and it's coming after me," she croons over a sugary beat and warm background vocals. "Do you feel exposed where it hurts the most? / Can you wear it on your sleeve?"

It's very cliché to say an artist's latest project is their most personal effort to date, but it's been five years since P!nk unleashed a pop record on us, and she's "got some things to say."

I love it. You can tell she is allowing her sound to evolve with modern day sounds, but her lyrics are still coming from the same place. "Beautiful Trauma" is everything. Barbies, Where We Go, Better Life, I Am Here, and Whatever You Want are great tunes.

I also thought she did a good job with this.

Since her album I'm Not Dead she has had such a clean pop/rock/folk/acoustic sound and it's something I really admire about her work. It's very classic and timeless.

as if eminem's freestyle didnt make me cringe enough, this just made things tenfolds worse. he shouldve retired after encore (even tho i f**k with a couple newer songs i could do without them if it prevented the rest of his tragedies from 2005 onward) tumblr_mvi9j2psm11qd8zg3o2_250.gif

“I sneak-attacked him,” Pink, 38, admits to EW. “[Producer] Max [Martin] and I started making [“Revenge”], and I wrote this rap. We were drinking a lot of wine, and then I went home and I thought more wine would be a good idea.”

Finally ready, “I emailed [Eminem],” she continues. “This is why they call it liquid courage. And I said, ‘You know I love you. I like that you work with a lot of the same people, like Rihanna. She’s hotter than me, but I’m funnier. So I’m going for a rap Grammy, and I’d like to take you along with me.’ It was this long email, and he wrote back right away and just said, ‘Okay.'”

Eminem was in Rio De Janeiro when the request came in, but Pink found the finished track in her inbox just four days later. Thrilled, she recalls, “I emailed him again, I was like, ‘This is the best thing I’ve ever heard! I want to tackle you and rub your face in the dirt!'”

His response? “He just wrote back and was like, ‘Okay.'”

the way he kept acting like he was angry was hideous. tumblr_mvi9j2psm11qd8zg3o2_250.gif

i dont mind if he makes anti trump tracks, totally his freedom to do so, but that line about making fans choose between him and trump made me lose my sh!t, it was too fucking funny. he wants to call trump a dictator but then tries to make his fans choose between a rapper and a politician? tumblr_mvi9j2psm11qd8zg3o2_250.gif

I don’t like entertainers getting political at all tbh, their job profession is to entertain us. But like you said, totally their freedom and it’s totally my freedom not to listen to it tumblr_mvi9j2psm11qd8zg3o2_250.gif

for me it depends, even if i disagree with some aspects i do love political music but i dont agree with having it shoved down my throat. i love nina simone and bob dylans political songs for example, and for bob theres instances i dont agree with but i enjoy them bc it offers different perspectives and its well written. eminem's approach was exactly how i expected him to react, hes craving to be "controversial" again. i like some of his old political songs, even if theres aspects to them that i may not side with.

also i just get bored of the pearl clutching hollywood  liberals thinking they are permitted to pigeonhole all the minorities (especially working class/less fortunate than these mansion bearing hollyweirdos) as some kind of torchbearers for their own beliefs and shame anyone who does not follow suit like a robot out of shame or fear they will be ridiculed for maybe having a slight unorthodox view on a matter. its why chris rock for example doesnt tour colleges anymore actually. tumblr_mvi9j2psm11qd8zg3o2_250.gif
