Pink Rockets To #1 On Billboard Hot 100

Published: Wednesday 17th Apr 2013 by Sam

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!

Tidbit: The video has 67 million views on Youtube!

    Pink has been slaying with this album, without people even knowing. Got ignored by the grammys while her album was epic.
    No gimmicks, only talent

    • Goddess Rih stan April 17, 2013

      She may be nominated next year.
      Her album wasn’t out long enough to have an impact on the masses.

    • NΛVI April 17, 2013

      OMG IKR i though i was the only who notice..everytime i check itunes..her album is pretty much always in the top 10-15 ever since it got release..the b**** slaying under our noses.

    • mr.m April 18, 2013

      She’s a flop .. bye

  2. DOSSOME April 17, 2013

    Congrats Pink…i wish TRY also topped the hot 100,a personal favorite of hers..Glad she didn’t need to discount it like Bruno Mars did with his album (amazing album btw) and single (amazing song btw) just to go to no.1

  3. speechless April 17, 2013

    Pinky better work!!

  4. Goddess Rih stan April 17, 2013

    I find it ironic how P!nk is killing the 2 girls on the charts (Britney & Xtina) that stole shine away from her. Now these girls are struggling for hits while she’s dominating.
    The underdog always wins in the end.
    Congrats to Pink!

    • DOSSOME April 17, 2013

      Britney isn’t struggling for hits…she’s even getting more of them with her worst’s her personal life that’s a mess

    • JER April 17, 2013

      Dont group Britneybot5000 with XXLtina. She had 4 top 10s in the past two years. XXLtinA hasnt had a hit since 2006 and dont try it with Moves Like Jagger and That Pitbull song.

  5. Suicide Blonde April 17, 2013

    Yes!, i love Pink…she was ignore by the Grammys but certain wannabe legend won a Grammy for an album that didn’t win anything the first year of it’s release then almost 2 years later she got her 40 or something Grammy for a song of the same album. Can we trust the Grammys.

    • DOSSOME April 17, 2013

      My favorite band Queen didn’t win a grammy and that didn’t change anything…Freddie Mercury still remains one of the greatest singers/musicians/performers of all time

      • Suicide Blonde April 17, 2013

        My point exactly, the Grammys sucks, big time, they supposed to be here for talent and good music. how can you explain that, btw, i love Freddie Mercury one of my fav. male singers, he’s one of my idols.

        I don’t care, if she didn’t win a Grammy first then why two years later, i tell you why…..they didn’t get their check in time.

      • NΛVI April 17, 2013

        Same goes for bob marley and he’s one of the biggest legends ever.

    • Shader April 17, 2013

      Stop shading that person though…That album was the highest selling rnb album of 2011 and sold 3 mill worldwide. It also won a grammy. At least she isn’t like another person who can’t sell more than 200k the first week or even sing.

    • MC April 17, 2013

      Here comes John lol

      I agree though, you know I do. 😉

      • Suicide Blonde April 17, 2013

        LOL, he loves the Grammy’s.

      • MC April 17, 2013

        He really does lol

  6. MC April 17, 2013

    Congrats to my girl P!nk, keep it up b****.

    • DOSSOME April 17, 2013

      WOW,you sure been missing here lately dahling

      • MC April 17, 2013

        Its a pointless site with pointless people for the most part. Didn’t wanna bother too much. I’ve missed some of y’all though 😉

      • DOSSOME April 17, 2013

        @MC I know…i’ve been trying to sign up in A T R L but they keep rejecting my request…at least there people discuss music

      • MC April 17, 2013

        They might accept registrations soon and I might see you there 😉

  7. BEST performer under 35 April 17, 2013

    Yes! So happy for her.

    I am glad TGJ is covering this story.

    Please post youtube videos of her tour like the Mrs Carter & Diamond tour videos u guys posted on TGJ.

    She is KILLIN it on tour ….also, her tour has outsold everyone except Bon Jovi this year.

    Unlike RIhanna, Pink has added over 30 dates to her US tour…. she has over 40 shows in Australia.

  8. Fifi April 17, 2013

    P!nk is awesome ! I love her. She is so talented.

  9. Mark111 April 17, 2013

    Big ups to Pink, the only pop star from the 90’s that is still here. Where’s christina aguilera, Jessica Simpson and Britney at? (Ok, take Brit out of it, she kills when she drop albums.)

    • hungry eyes April 17, 2013

      pink came out in 2000 and britney just had a smash hit with

      • Mark111 April 17, 2013

        That’s right, well from that era then. Happy?

  10. Common Sense April 17, 2013

    THANK GOD! I thought that Korean joker PSY was going to rob her of her #1 with all the zombies watching his new single on Youtube. Congrats Pink!

  11. christinastheerealtalent April 17, 2013


    The reason Pink is doing better than Xtina is because they are on the same label and the label invested in Pink. They know she can put on a good show (which Christina has to but not as of lately), her vocals are still very much in tact (which Christina’s are too but she just needs to take it down a level), the whole weight thing (Pink being skinnier than Christina) has played a huge role, Pink’s music is more consistent than Christina’s. So on and so on.

    RCA is not going to invest in Christina and I don’t think they will ever invest in her again which is why I think Christina is going to leave them and sign to Capitol.

  12. King B>Rihanna April 17, 2013

    Yes! Yes! and f****** Yes!

    Love Pink! all her singles should have gone number one especially TRY but hey I’ll take it however I get it.

  13. Kyle April 17, 2013

    P!NK deserves all the success that she has achieved over the years. She is the definition of a REAL artist. I agree with one of the comments above, “Try” should’ve been at least a top 5 hit. That is one of her best songs EVER in my opinion.

  14. Theman April 17, 2013

    She is amazing, she deserves all of her success. What a talent. She’s very very consistent.. This song is amazing as well..

  15. JER April 17, 2013

    Im VERY happy for her she deserves it. A Hot 100 #1 is no easy feat the competition is fierce these days.

  16. mr.m April 18, 2013

    St!nk is a flop shemale ..

  17. GrapeKoolAid April 19, 2013

    P!nk is my favorite white girl. I wanted to go to her concert so bad but I would probably be the only Black chick there. It don’t matter to me…I know her songs just like every one else. Much success to her. Just wish she would perform Most Girls sometimes. Her first album was hot.
