Pink records album with Dallas Green
You + Me = Pink? When the pop singer decided she wanted to make an acoustic-folk album with Dallas Green (of City and Colour and Alexisonfire fame) they needed a catchy 'band' moniker. That's exactly how You Me was born.
The duo managed to write and record their debut project, "rose ave.," while maintaining total secrecy over approximately one week last March (2014) in a studio in Venice Beach. The major label star working side-by-side with an indie hardcore-turned-folk artist flew under everyone's radar, at least until the official announcement in September that the two were working together. The album was released a month later, with every song written and produced by Pink and Green, except for the final track "No Ordinary Love," which is a song by Sade.
To the surprise of some (but to others no surprise at all), the album debuted at number one on the Canadian Albums Chart and at number four on the Billboard 200. It also opened in the top 10 in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and the United Kingdom. The first single, "You and Me," was followed by "Break the Cycle and "Capsized."
In describing the collaboration to Entertainment Weekly, Green talked about how he saw a card that said You and Me on it. "It made perfect sense, 'cause it really was just the two of us," he said. "There was no boardroom meeting, no, 'You should do this 'cause this will change your career.' It was just an idea from the two of us.
Pink tells "The Truth About Love" (Updated 4/24/14)
In every sense of the word, 2013 turned out to be a banner year for Pink. She was named Billboard's Woman of the Year, with the magazine citing the success of her album "The Truth About Love," as well as the singles "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)," "Try," "Just Give Me a Reason," and "True Love."
A successful album wasn't her only reason to celebrate. Pink's "The Truth About Love Tour" was continuously extended due to demand. It played over 140 shows in Australia, Europe and North America, with some of those stops recorded and released on a concert DVD, "The Truth About Love Tour: Love from Melbourne." Overall, the tour was the 3rd best selling tour of 2013 with $147.9 million in ticket sales, coming in only behind Bon Jovi and Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour.
The accolades kept rolling in as Pink was ranked the 6th top artist of 2013 and scored her highest charting end-of-year song and album ; "Just Give Me a Reason" was sitting at No. 7 on the Hot 100 and "The Truth About Love" was No. 8 on the Billboard 200.
At the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, Pink was nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Just Give Me a Reason." She also performed a breathtaking Cirque du Soleil aerial rendition of "Try," then landed on stage to join Nate Ruess in singing "Just Give Me a Reason." The performance pushed both songs back onto the iTunes charts, and boosted her album in sales to No. 12 on iTunes.
Pink ended 2013 as music's 9th top grossing artist, with more than $20 million earned.
Pennsylvania's Pop Powerhouse (Created April 3, 2013)
She is a powerhouse of pop, a master of songcraft and never destined to fall under the label of just another tween act. Instead, Pink (also known as P!nk) and her rock-influenced vocals aimed to set the record straight with her sophomore album "Missundaztood." After its release, there would be no more question of her musical direction.
Born Alecia Moore in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, Pink was just a teen when she began making the rounds on the Philadelphia club scene. It led to a life on a musical merry go-round. She was a dancer, a backing vocalist and part of two separate R&B groups before landing a solo contract. But her debut album, "Can't Take Me Home," nearly pigeonholed her as a teen act. She aimed to set the record straight with "Misundaztood" – and she did. Behind songs like "Get the Party Started" and "Don't Let Me Get Me," the album quickly went double-platinum.
Pink next issued "Try This," which continued her progression toward a more rock-oriented sound. Then came "I'm Not Dead," "Funhouse" and 2012's "The Truth About Love." The latter, which was her sixth studio album, featured such singles as "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" and "Try." The project is being supported by a world tour that kicked off on February 13, 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona. In March, Pink confirmed she'll be adding more dates to her tour in Australia, Canada and the US.
Outside of music, Pink is known for her eclectic and adventurous hair styles. She is also an advocate for PETA, and heavily involved with several charities. Her social media following is also at some 14+ million Twitter followers, and 18 million likes on Facebook.
