The Truth About Love is the sixth studio album by American recording artist and songwriter Pink, released on September 14, 2012, by RCA Records.

It features guest artists Eminem, Lily Allen and Nate Ruess of American band Fun.

In the United States, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 281,000 copies in its first week becoming her first number one album there, and has been certified double platinum by RIAA after shipping over two million copies.[2] The album also debuted at number-one in Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Sweden, and Switzerland. The Truth About Love was announced as Australia's biggest selling album of the year. According to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), it was the seventh global best-selling album of 2012 with sales of 2.6 million copies.[3] As of July 2014, the album has sold 2 million copies in the US,[4] and estimated 7 million copies worldwide, becoming her most successful album since 2001's Missundaztood.[5]

The first single from The Truth About Love, "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" was released in July 2012, the song sat firmly at number five on the US Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks, and went Platinum for over a million copies sold, as well as charting inside the top ten in several other countries. The follow up second single, "Try" received matching success and preceded Pink's fourth Hot 100 #1 hit, third single "Just Give Me a Reason" which made The Truth About Love Pink's first album since her 2001 album Missundaztood to spawn more than three Hot 100 top 10-charting singles, therefore adding up to fourteen Top 10 hits overall. As of July 2013, "Just Give Me a Reason" is the second best selling song of 2013 in the US.[6] To support the album, Pink began her Truth About Love Tour in February 2013. The tour continued through 2013 and included American, Australian and European legs and ended on January 31, 2014.

Background and development[edit]

On October 7, 2011, RCA Music Group announced that it would be disbanding Jive Records, along with Arista and J Records. With the shutdown, Pink and all other artists previously signed to the labels would release any future material through RCA Records.[7][8] In 2011, Joe Riccitelli, an executive with the label, announced that Pink was preparing to enter the studio to begin work on her sixth studio album, to be released in September 2012. On February 29, 2012, Pink took to her Twitter account and confirmed that she was currently in the writing process for her new record.[9] On June 19, 2012, Pink announced via video on Twitter that the first single from her upcoming album would be called "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" and that it would be released on July 9, 2012.[10][11] She added, "I think you're going to like it, because I really like it, and I like it enough for all of us."[12] However, the demo version of the song leaked on July 1, 2012, a week before its scheduled release.[12][13] The next day, it was released via Pink's official page and her YouTube account.[12] On July 4, 2012, Pink announced that her sixth studio album would be titled The Truth About Love.[14][15]

An uptempo[20] electropop[21] and dance-pop[22] song with dance music influences produced by Greg Kurstin,[12] "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" received general acclaim from most music critics, with some of them noting its resemblance with Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" which was also produced by Kurstin.[23] The song first appeared on the Australian Singles Chart on the week ending 16 July 2012, peaking at #1.[24] The song debuted at #8 on the New Zealand Top 40 chart.[24] It also debuted at #13 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart.[24] In Ireland, the song debuted at #23 on the Irish Singles Chart.[24] In the United States, the song charted at #58 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on the week ending 21 July 2012.

The Truth About Love received generally positive reviews from contemporary music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 77, based on 16 reviews.[45] Kyle Anderson of Entertainment Weekly dubbed it a "lyrical masterpiece" and praised Pink's songwriting as "unfalteringly vibrant, loaded with righteous anger, irreverence, and a clear eye for the darker side."[39] Caroline Sullivan of The Guardian commended her for having "the nous to convert raw emotion into pop-punk earworms", although she commented that the "Mariah-slick motivational ballads ... detract from an otherwise fierce record."[40] Andrew Hampp of Billboard called the album "a peerlessly witty, endlessly melodic tour de force".[46] Consequence of Sound's Sarah Grant commended Pink for "filter[ing] whatever the current trend is through her unique musical lens" and commented that her "consistency proves she should be taken at her word."[47]

Josh Langhoff of PopMatters praised Pink's hooks and found the album "not bad" for "major label singer-songwriter stuff".[48] Jon Pareles of The New York Times felt that she "is committed to pop impact, not to any particular style", and "recognizes some nonstorybook sides of romance."[49] Allmusic editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine complimented her "eager[ness] to dive into the muck of grown-up emotions, expanding and deepening her music without succumbing to stuffy pretension", and called it "weird and willfully, proudly human, a big pop album about real emotions and one of P!nk's wildest rides."[1] Caryn Ganz of Spin called Pink "charmingly unhinged" and wrote that, despite some "objectionable moments" of "rock'n'roll karaoke", "her songs have enough heart, grit, and energy to stand on their own."[44] MSN Music's Robert Christgau viewed that, apart from its last two songs, the album "hit[s] every time" and quipped, "Pink (!) and her 21 collaborators fashion a recorded image of her feisty, heartfelt, all-over-the-place love/sex life."[38]

Although he found it "supercatchy", Jody Rosen of Rolling Stone viewed that the album "devolves into self parody" as "Pink strains to shock, peppering songs with gratuitous curse words."[42] Hermoine Hoby of The Observer favored its "workmanlike ballads delivered with beyond-workmanlike shading" over its "chunky guitar pop stuffed with shouty, bad-girl choruses", which she considered "dominates" the album.[41] Marc Hirsh of The A.V. Club felt that Pink is pandering to her contemporaries in pop music, but complimented her "disarming candor that's all the more bracing because it's delivered with a middle finger."[36] Slant Magazine's Sal Cinquemani viewed the album as formulaic and "competently, often frustratingly more of the same from an artist who still seems capable of much more."[43] Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune perceived "formula production and hack songwriting", but complimented Pink's personality and its "handful" of worthy tracks.[37]

Accolades[edit]

In his list for Barnes & Noble, Robert Christgau named The Truth About Love the fourth best album of 2012.[50] It also made NPR Music's list of 50 Favorite Albums Of 2012.[51] It placed #11 on SPIN's list of best Pop Albums of 2012[52] It became Pink's second consecutive album to receive a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album, and her third overall to achieve the honor.[53] However, on February 10, the album lost the Grammy to Kelly Clarkson's Stronger (2011). P!nk became the artist with most nominations in the category, with three, tying up with Clarkson, Madonna and Sarah McLachlan.

Commercial performance[edit]

In Australia, the album debuted at #1 and was certified double platinum within its first week of release, becoming Pink's third #1 album there.[54] In the United Kingdom, the album debuted at #2 with 80,000 copies sold in its first week behind The Killers' Battle Born.[55]

The Truth About Love became Pink's first chart topping album in the United States, debuting at #1 with first week sales of over 281,000.[56] In its second week the album fell to #4 with 94,000 copies sold. On Thanksgiving week, following her American Music Awards performance of "Try", the album leaped back into the Billboard 200 top ten at #7 with 144,000 copies sold. It has earned a Platinum certification from the RIAA[57] denoting shipments to retailers of over 1 million copies in the US. In 2012, it sold 945,000 copies in the US and 446,000 copies in the UK.[58][59] In Canada, the album debuted at #1 selling 28,000 copies.[60] The Truth About Love sold 1,865,000 copies in the US as of December 2013.[4] As of June 2014, the album has sold over 7 Million copies worldwide.
