P!nk is proving that at age 38, she is still a pop powerhouse in a field normally dominated by younger artists. On Oct. 13, she released her latest album Beautiful Trauma and the set is opening at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, her second No. 1 in her career. The chart will be updated on Oct. 24.
Beautiful Trauma begins its run with a massive 408,000 total units. Of that number, 384,000 were in actual album sales. The album's large number was also fueled by a concert/CD bundle for those fans who chose to redeem the offer for a CD. P!nk now has the largest sales week of 2017 and has the largest sales week since Drake's Views from May 2016 (852,000 in sales).
P!nk's previous album, The Truth About Love (2012), became the singer-songwriter's first No. 1 on the Top 200 Albums chart. That record debuted with 280,000 copies sold, a time when only sales were factored into the Top 200 formula.
Beautiful Trauma was kicked off with single "What About Us?," a subtle political jab in the current climate. The song has reached No. 6 on Adult Contemporary airplay, No. 3 on Adult Pop (Adult Top 40), while also topping the dance charts.
The song "Revenge" featuring Eminem will officially serve as the album's second single.
