Pink Power showed up and showed out on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
The Pop rebel landed her fourth #1 single on the tally ‘Just Give Me A Reason’, the third single to be lifted from her latest album ‘The Truth About Love’.
Details after the jump…
The Nate Ruess assisted number jumped #3-#1 – marking the 33-year-old’s first Hot 100 chart-topper since 2010’s ‘Raise Your Glass’. Prior to then, the singer’s other #1’s on the iconic tally were 2008’s ‘So What’ and 2001’s mega-selling ‘Lady Marmalade’ – which reigned supreme for five weeks.
As for the why ‘Reason’ rose; it’s quite simply — it’s slaying across-the-board! Indeed, it bullets #2-#1 on the Digital Songs chart for a third week with 283,000 downloads sold (up 1%). What’s more, it punches its way into the top five on Radio Songs (#7-#4), with its 20% increase to 97 million all-format audience impressions. The feat, which is confirmed by Nielsen SoundScan, sees the track earn the honor of being the biggest Airplay Gainer on the Hot 100 for a third consecutive week. On Streaming Songs, ‘Reason’ rises #6-#4 (4.6 million streams, up 16%). In simple terms, the song is unstoppable and so is Pink!
A surprise of sorts, many are startled that the cut has garnered such pronounced commercial success given that Pink is on a world tour and has yet to offer any high-profile TV performances directly geared towards plugging this song in the US. Still, whichever way it’s diced or sliced…she’s on to a smash!
