Grammy award-winning international recording artist P!nk has penned a brand new worldwide, multiple album recording deal with her current label RCA Records.
2013 was a big year for P!nk. Her 2012 album, The Truth About Love debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 as well as in six other countries. The album marked P!nk’s first #1 debut in the US and a personal first week sales best. The album is certified double platinum in the US, 2X Platinum in the UK, Germany, Ireland, and the Netherlands, 8X Platinum in Australia, and Platinum-plus in over ten countries.
Additionally the album was nominated for multiple Grammys both in 2013/14. The Truth About Love produced the smash singles “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)”, “Try” and “Just Give Me A Reason” featuring Nate Ruess which mark P!nk’s 12th, 13th and 14th Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. “Just Give Me A Reason” has sold over 4.5 million singles, was the fourth best selling global single of 2013 and makes P!nk’s fourth #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. In December 2013, P!nk received the honor of being named Billboard’s Woman of the Year.
“We couldn’t be more proud to have P!nk continue her relationship with RCA,” comments Peter Edge. “She is a one-of-a kind artist who continues to raise the stakes of her own artistry with her inspiring songs and sky’s the limit live performances. We look forward to an incredible future ahead.”
“P!nk is in a league all her own and we are thrilled she will continue to be a member of the RCA family.”
“P!nk is in a league all her own and we are thrilled she will continue to be a member of the RCA family,” states Tom Corson. “There is no question she has upped the ante on what it takes to remain on top of the global stage.”
“I am super duper excited to continue onwards and upwards with RCA and my team there,” states P!nk. “We work really well together and they care in a way that artists don’t get to see very often anymore. I look forward to whatever the future holds for us and am so beyond thrilled with how much they believe in me. Woohoo rock n roll!”
