Pink is winning on all corners of the globe this week.
Because, with opening numbers of her ‘Beautiful Trauma’ album tallied, she’s sitting atop of many a chart – including the UK count.
According to the Official Charts Company, the star’s 7th LP sold 70,000 (a combined total of pure sales, digital downloads, and streaming) – easily besting the competition to premiere at #1. In doing so, it becomes Pink’s second effort to achieve the feat; 2008’s ‘Funhouse’ being first.
‘Beautiful’ also sees the 38-year-old score the biggest opening week for an international act on the Official UK Albums Chart thus far this year.
Interestingly (and impressively), her large total is comprised of 64% pure sales. Notable given the overall sales climate and the lack of tour-ticket bundle that she had working in her favor stateside.
The video for lead single ‘What About Us’ just hit 100 million views on VEVO too.
