"There You Go" is a song co-written and performed by American singer Pink, released as her debut single from her debut album, Can't Take Me Home. The single was released on February 8, 2000 in the United States and May 22, 2000 in the United Kingdom. The song is noted for the longest consecutive debut at number two on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart and never peaking at one, staying at number two for 10 consecutive weeks.

Background[edit]

"There You Go" was written by Pink, Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs and Kandi Burruss. It was produced by "She'kspere". The song is about a relationship that Pink has ended, but the ex-boyfriend wants her back. The single peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100, #2 on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart and #6 on the UK Singles Chart and New Zealand Singles Chart. It was also a big hit in Australia, and was accredited Platinum with sales of over 70,000.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Allmusic highlighted the song.[2] Rob Brunner compared: "Briggs' There You Go is remarkably similar to his hits for Destiny's Child (Bills, Bills, Bills) and TLC (No Scrubs), but minus the vocal interplay that gives those tunes their punch."[3] MTV Asia wrote that this song is an edgy cut that haves all that it takes to top the charts.[4] Rolling Stone was also positive: "Her debut has one awesome single in "There You Go," whose wronged-woman sass is set to a stop-start groove so bling-bling it redeems a chorus that ends, "Sometimes it be's like that."[5] Complex magazine named it the 11th best R&B song by white singer in 2000s.[6]

Music video[edit]

In the music video, Pink's ex-boyfriend calls her asking for a ride, and she reluctantly agrees to give him one. Pink hops on a motorcycle and rides to the top of a parking structure overlooking her ex's apartment, where she calls him on her cell. She then accelerates her motorcycle, jumps off at the last second and watches as it soars off the building and crashes into his apartment window before exploding into flames. Pink then jumps into a car driven by a new guy, giving her ex the middle finger as they drive off. Entertainment Weekly editor described: "In the video for There You Go — her smash single — the piqued Pink freaks, sending a motorcycle crashing into Floyd's fab bachelor pad."[3]
