Billboard:

http://www.billboard.com/news/pink-anno ... 9752.story

Pink will return with single "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)," the singer announced in a video on Tuesday.

"It's very exciting," she said, revealing she co-wrote the provocatively titled track with producer Greg Kurstin ( the Bird and the Bee, Kelly Clarkson).

"I think you're going to like it, because I really like it, and I like it enough for all of us," she said, making a face.

The track will arrive on July 9, with a new album to follow on RCA Records later this year.

Her forthcoming studio set will be her sixth overall and first since 2008's "Funhouse." That release debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart on 2008. It launched five hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100: "So What" (No. 1), "Sober" (No. 15), "Please Don't Leave Me" (No. 17), the title track (No. 44) and "Glitter in the Air" (No. 18). "Funhouse" has sold 1.96 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

She followed up the success of "Funhouse" with her first best-of album, "Greatest Hits . . . So Far!!!," which hit No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and has moved 995,000 units. That album's two singles, "Raise Your Glass" and "F**kin' Perfect," were also big Hot 100 hits. They reached Nos. 1 and 2, respectively.


Coming for that Multiplat. and plat. plaque!!!

If the album is released in the Fall, she HAS to do both a VMA AND an X-Factor performance, especially if the ratings for the latter are higher than last year's.

Rumour has it the chorus sounds like this:

"I think that life's too short for this
want back my ignorance and bliss
I think i've had enough of this
Blow me one last kiss"

The track according to the rumours is not a dance-pop track a-la Stronger, but a Pop-rock one, with "Runaway"'s similiar riff, and it's a "definite and honest f*ck you song". We'll find out, I guess .

I can see this smashing!! there's no a lot of pop-rock ATM on radio

YAY another platinum album for P!nk

Funhouse should get a double platinum certification, hopefully they will certify it during the release of the new album!
And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

SINGLE REVIEW:
P!NK, “BLOW ME (ONE LAST KISS)”

P!nk’s first single, “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)”, is an electro pop-rock stomper that is sure to dominate the radio the remainder of the summer season. The song is not quite as vulgar as the title may suggest, but P!nk certainly doesn’t withhold the expletives in this aggressive break-up anthem. And boy, IS IT EVER a break-up anthem!

The song kicks into an instrumental with a slight electro influence that offers a refreshing, funky twist to her typical winning formula. “White knuckles and sweaty palms from hanging on too tight,” the song kicks off at a relaxed pace, “Clench of jaw, I’ve got another headache again tonight”.

From there, the song kicks off to a building rapid-fire as it enters one of the pre-choruses, “Eyes on fire, eyes on fire, and the burn from all the tears,” it’s building and building with every line, “I’ve been crying, I’ve been crying, I’ve been dying over you”, building(!), “tie a knot in the rope, trying to hold, trying to hold, but there’s nothing to grab so I let go.”

And that’s when we get the first hit of the chorus. It’s of the grand soaring sing-a-long nature that we would expect nothing less of. P!nk is full of conviction here, “I think I’ve finally had enough, I think I maybe think too much, I think this might be it for us (blow me one last kiss)”. If you haven’t noticed by now the song’s lyrics are slightly more serious than the standard P!nk lead-in. Don’t worry P!nk still has plenty of wit in her delivery, just most subdued – it’s a good look in my opinion. The production also helps ensure maximum rock-ability. “You think I’m just too serious, I think you’re full of shit, my head is spinning so (blow me one last kiss)” The next lines feature a shout-back, as if it needed to be even more commanding of attention, “Just when I think it can’t get worse, I had a shit day (NO!), you had a shit day (NO!), we’ve had a shit day (NO!) I think life’s too short for this, I’ll pack my ignorance and bliss, I think I’ve had enough of this, blow me on last kiss.” The chorus is involving and super catchy – smash!

“I won’t miss all of the fighting that we always did,” the second verse leads in again and a return to the calmer side, “Take it in, I mean what I say when I say there is nothing left”. But oh wait – the pre-chrous kicks in and it’s building again, “I am sick, whiskey-dick, no more battles for me, you’ll be calling a trick, cause you’ll no longer sleep, “ Ouch. “I’ll dress nice, I’ll look good, I’ll go dancing alone, I’ll laugh, I’ll get drunk, I’ll take somebody home” Don’t hurt em! Cue that explosive chorus.

The bridge features a little instrumental with some ad-libs and an occasional “blow me one more kiss”, before hitting yet another pre-chorus to send em off with. “I will do what I please, anything that I want, I will breathe, I won’t breathe, I won’t worry at all, you will pay for your sins, you’ll be sorry my dear, all the lies, all the wise, will be crystal clear.” And there’s that chorus again with some awesome ad-libs – oh and some “lalalananana”’s or something to that effect.

Some would say P!nk has played the role of the underdog, not just artistically but commercially; commonly taking the back-seat to the Britneys, Beyonces, Rihannas, and Gagas that have commanded radio and press over the last decade. However, if the success of her Greatest Hits project is anything to go off of (“Raise Your Glass” went #1, and “****’ Perfect” #2) P!nk will have all eyes on her as she drops the first single to her sixth studio album.

“Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” is the kind of song that is gonna ensure that her recent successes are only gonna continue and grow. It’s radio-friendly, it’s memorable, it’s empowering, it’s very P!nk and it’s a lot of fun!
