On This Day in PinkHistory… 26th April 2019 Hurts 2B Human was released

Hurts 2B Human is the eighth studio album by Pink. Released in April 2019, by RCA Records, the album was initially planned as a standalone extended play (EP). Pursuing a sound that would be departure from her previous albums, Pink enlisted the assistance of collaborators such as Greg Kurstin, Max Martin, and Ryan Tedder. The album features guest appearances by Cash Cash, Khalid, Chris Stapleton, and Wrabel. The album was officially announced during Pink’s interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show broadcast in February 2019.

Musically, Hurts 2B Human is a pop record whose lyrics delve into themes of love, family, introspection, life, and self-worth. The album received generally favorable reviews from music critics, many of whom praised its production and cohesiveness; others felt it was too calculated and formulaic. Commercially, the album was successful, reaching number one in eight countries including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Switzerland. In the United States, Hurts 2B Human became Pink’s third consecutive album to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales of 115,000 album-equivalent units. To promote the singer’s album, Walk Me Home was released in February 2019, as a lead single to commercial success, followed by Can We Pretend, Hurts 2B Human, and Love Me Anyway as the second, third and fourth singles, respectively.
