Former R&B chick Pink and her infectious hit ‘You Make Me Sick’ are this week’s From The Vault pick.
Released in the year 2000, ‘Sick’ was the third and last single off the singer’s debut ‘Can’t Take Me Home’. Produced by Babyface, it sees Ms. Moore-Hart open up about a passionate love affair that has her going out of her mind.
Unlike its predecessors ‘There You Go’ and ‘Most Girl’, it didn’t reach the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, instead peaking at #33. However, it got to the ninth position of the UK Official Singles Chart.
Pink’s frequent collaborator Dave Meyers took charge of the visualization of the track. The result: a high-octane, colorful and hilarious piece of work. Proving that there’s only but a thin line between LOVE and HATE, it was the diva’s first of many comedy-themed videos – which became Pink’s trademark on a visual tip.
Having quite literally ruled the Hot 100 last year, the ‘Just Give Me A Reason’ vocalist seems to be in a league of her own today. Indeed, with her show-stopping stage antics and blend of soulful-Pop/Rock, she incredibly keeps gaining even more recognition at a time when her peers’ stars are starting to fade.
Here at TGJ HQ, we’ll always salivate at the prospect of new material from the ‘Just Like A Pill’ Pop-genius, and we would be lying if we said we weren’t praying for an Urban-tinged album for her next chart assault.
In the meantime…
