Calling P!NK basic :D :D :D

Well this is far from her best song/single. But people were always crying for a change in direction. Here it is and people are still moaning. She mixes it up a bit, be glad with that.

P!nk is anything but basic. She is one of the few who actually always delivered no matter what for the last 17 years. Singles, albums, performances, tours... But this single is mediocre at it's best. That is if we want to be "kind" to it.

I don't see how she's can't be labeled as basic these days, since she hasn't put out anything musically relevant in almost 10 years.

She's basically an Avril Lavigne with good sales (and no bops).

Care to elaborate a bit on that? I'm interested to hear what you consider 'musically relevant'.

Something original in the context of her discography! I was even quite kind, since one could argue that even Funhouse was a rehash of I'm Not Dead.
It just seems blatantly obvious to me that she dropped the ball long ago.

To elaborate a little bit more:



Also click, click, click

The songs speak for themselves, tbh

^This is not necessarily bad or irrelevant. She has just found her sound and what works for her.
On the other hand, doing the same thing over and over is tiring at times...

We all wanted a change and this time she did it but we can not feel it for several reasons. :lol: :lol:

I would argue that this is not really much of a change either, she just has more ballads than uptempos, but the formula is still the same.

I guess I'll just go listen to Try This.

I love both Pink and Eminem but for some reason their collabs just don't click with me. On paper you would think they would be amazing but they are basic in my opinion, not bad songs just not as great as you'd expect from them.

"Won't Back Down" and "Here Comes The Weekend" were better songs than "Revenge" but they were never released as singles. :(
However, this b-side is the second single of the whole project! If it was the fourth then i wouldn't mind that much.
I don't think this song can sell the album or be a hit. :oops:

To be fair, it's not a great change. It's more of a toned down version of her formula.

I don't know what happened but i'm saying it again: this time her material is mediocre. She always had filler tracks in her albums but she also had some more instant songs that stood out. BT sounds samey except 2 songs...

Since when has doing something different (subjective btw) been the only contributing factor in doing something that's musically relevant?

She's done something different with this and has had a very cool response, doesn't that completely nullify your reasoning?

I don't like revenge, it is the worst song of the album imo.

Doing something different is not subjective, and this album is not any different to any other album that she's done before.
And anyway, trying new things IS a contributing factor in an artist's development. No one is asking her to go hard rock or to do an electronic album, but at least she could try to avoid giving us an album full of I Don't Believe You/Try wannabes.

Beyoncé, for instance, has been doing R&B for her whole career, but no one can say (regardless of the fact that they like her or not) that she's made the same album four times in a row.

This song is Record of the Week at the biggest Dutch radio station (Radio 538) this week. the song's #86 on iTunes already. I think this will be another big hit for her here - and probably in the rest of Europe and US too.
I'm not a big fan of the song (maybe it'll grow on me), but I feel like she has the momentum going on at the moment.
Good for her :)

I can't bear this song. She's has really lost me with this era. And the last to be honest except at least on the last album we had blow, walk of shame, slut like you and try. She's become SO middle of the road now.

This is not among her best singles. Hard to think Eminem and P!nk would be so plain together. Like Em, dude, you used to be a genius in late 90s and early 00s. What happened.

"Basic" means different things to different people, that's for sure. It can be taken literally or in more of a slang-for-bad kind of way. Much like "flop", I suppose.

Anyway, I think this song works. Seems to me like it's meant to be a playful, light record, amongst several more thoughtful and earnest lyrics on the album. I didn't care much for their previous collab - this one works better for me. I'm not sold on its commercial success prospects, but it's a good way to get Eminem back on the radio before he makes a comeback of his own.

So there is a new Eminem single featuring Beyonce... perhaps the release of Revenge was postponed?
