Watch: Pink Tributes R&B Past With ‘Can’t Take Me Home’ Tour Medley

Published: Monday 18th Feb 2013 by Sam

Pink may be a soulful Pop rocker these days, yet – as anyone au fait with her colorful career will know – playful R&B is the arena she rose to prominence in.

Indeed, it was her 2000 debut ‘Can’t Take Me Home’ that propelled the singer to stardom, creating the way for her mainstream mega-seller ‘M!ssundaztood’ the year after.

Thirteen years and thirty hits later, the singer gave a nod to her Urban humblings with an R&B medley at the Los Angeles stop of her ‘Truth About Love Tour’ last night.

Relive the nostalgia of ‘Most Girls’, ‘You Make Me Sick’, and ‘There You Go’ after the jump…


Given the length and breadth of success Pink has had with songs of the Popier and Rockier persuasions, we’ve long given up hope of ever receiving another Urban album . It’s a reality that we’ve also made peace with given the embedded soulfulness in her voice (whatever she’s singing).

That said, her general ignoring of that window of time (a window that was the first peek many had into who she was) always irked us somewhat. Hence, it’s great to see her embracing it and celebrating it for what is was – the genesis of an amazing and qualitative career.

    Funny to know that she was discovered from singing Mary j blige songs at bars !

    Nice & the choreography wasn’t half-bad

    I actually prefer the Power-Pop/Rock- oriented Pink; when she’s sitting their, playing her guitar and Wildin’ out is when I think she is truly in her natural element but ‘Most Girls’ is still one of my favourite song of hers nonetheless.

    This just made me scream this is what made me love her she can do anything she so f****** dope

    CTMH was a great debut from Pink. Its a shame she doesn’t still incorporate R&B into her newer albums.

    Im an rnb chick and I absollluutteeely love her 1st album!! Wish she could another album just like that, I mean with the same influences.

    I miss the R&B singing, hard dancing Pink. Don’t get me wrong, I love her pop rock music too….but her voice over an R&B track is just…..magical!

    She always tries to act as if R&B was forced upon her, but as someone stated, she used to sing MJB songs in bars and was in an R&B trio before she got signed.

    Pink is a very good singer and her voice sounds good no matter what genre she’s singing. Even tho it would be nice to get another r&b album from her…

    Truly a special treat! I remember I couldn’t stand There You Go but when she dropped Most Girls, and You Make Me Sick, I went out and bought the damn album and have been a fan ever since!

    I miss P!nk when she did str8 R&B but I just love her rock music because it fits her better plus she still sings hard! I think an R&B album would be nice but I kinda of like the lane she’s in now! She always reminded me of Pat Benatar.

    Hummmm….so violent domestic abuser but white female – who identifies as a feminist so of course she gets the” good ol’ girl “pass – returns to her R&B roots? Yawn…….she looks and sounds her usual hot ass mess. Had she been a black female (Rih or Bey) she would have been called out! But anyway…… 🙂

    P!nk is fantastic as always, she is completely underrated. R&B sounds great on her, actually anything sounds great on her. Love her.

    Aah, it makes my heart beat faster when I see this. I feel in love with R&B P!nk when I saw the video for There You Go on local Polish tv channel. Can’t Take Me Home is a fantastic album. I do appreciate her ‘giving the nod’ to her R&B past, but damn, I would DIE to hear her sing Love Is Such A Crazy Thing/Stop Falling/Is It Love or Private Show after all these years. I can die peacefully if she ever does that.

    She’s a dope ass performer, she dnt make my type of music but I respect what she do.

  19. Jake.ubb February 18, 2013

    yaassss pink! that album used to be my breakfast lunch and dinner! nice to see her giving the fans what they wanna hear! it would be nice someday if she reverted back to that style, even if just for one song or something. anyways, she always seems to put on a great show and this was no exception! 🙂

    ive always loved her cuz she wasnt a gimmick her song were truly powerful for me thru my t*** years ..i was all about beyonce and dc..but the meaning of powerful and not being a stupid girl helped me make great decisions when it came to boys s** friends and everything..she was defintely on my level of growth and talent..she chose to swtich her style in music cuz she wanted to grow..she wanted the freedom of being an artist ..she is an ass kicker and a low tolerance for b*******..she will show u her ugly and her pretty and her music and personality defines who she is as an artist and as a woman <3

    Took me back to the 2000’s, when pop stars used to dance. At the time I was like whatever, Aaliyah, Usher and DC can do it better (cause I was R&B to the maxx), but looking back, Britney, Pink, CA, Nsync and others use to get down. It’s crazy, what if Pink didn’t change her style of music, we might not know who she is today( can you say Sisqo). If you look at it, Pink paved the way for Rihanna in a lot of ways.
