You better get this party started.
In a year that has seen some of the top female musicians releasing new music (Lorde, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, to name a few), Pink is slated for the biggest debut by a woman in 2017 with her new album, Beautiful Trauma.
According to Billboard, the 38-year-old musician’s seventh studio album will garner more than 300,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 19. The last female album to rack up greater than 300,000 units in a week? Lemonade by Beyoncé, which picked up 321,000 in its second week. Though her first week sales were been aided by tour ticket-album bundle sales — a common practice in the industry — the numbers are certainly still nothing to balk at.
Bolstered by songs like lead single “What About Us” and “Revenge” — Pink’s new song with Eminem, which she told EW was the “best thing I’ve ever heard” — there was much anticipation for the full-length release, songs from which Pink performed on the weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live.
Pink’s got some big competition for the No. 1 spot coming up: Kelly Clarkson returns with Meaning of Life on Oct. 27, and Taylor Swift’s Reputation drops on Nov. 10.
