Behind the scenes, meanwhile, Pink has more than kept herself busy, writing songs for the likes of Mya, Celine Dion and Faith Hill. There have also been contributions to the soundtracks of Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, Alice Through the Looking Glass and Beat Bugs. And if that wasn’t nearly enough, the singer has taken up acting, too, with performances in movies including Catacombs, Thanks for Sharing and Happy Feet Two.
Perhaps as a result of all this extra activity, Pink took five years to deliver a follow-up to The Truth About Love – but the resulting record proved to be worth the wait. And it excelled commercially as well, as 2017’s Beautiful Trauma sold an astonishing 408,000 copies in its first week of release to top the Billboard 200. In fact, the album had the highest first-week sales of any LP by a female artist since Beyoncé’s 2016 album Lemonade. Beautiful Trauma also reached number one in the U.K., Australia and Canada.
