Here Are the Artists Who Inspired P!nk Over the Years

Alecia Beth Moore, known by her stage name, P!nk is an American singer, producer, and songwriter. P!nk used her stage name even before she rose to fame in the industry. The 42-year-old artist is known for her powerful vocals and biggest chart successes like 'Blow Me One Last Kiss', 'What About Us', and 'Just Give Me a Reason'.

P!nk started her journey from a very young age of 14 when she joined a girl band called, Basic Instinct. Soon after Basic Instinct disbanded, P!nk started another band, Choice, with two of her friends. However, it also disbanded shortly, giving P!nk a choice to either strive to become a solo artist or call it quits. P!nk decided not to quit and keep making music.

Let’s talk about P!nk’s last album and the artists who inspired her throughout her music career:

P!nk— Hurts 2B Human

Most of P!nk’s music has been about pain and trauma paired with uplifting beats and catchy tunes. One of her most famous releases, 'Beautiful Trauma', is a vulnerable and beautiful track in which P!nk talks about the pain of divorce, depression, and drug addiction.  

Her 8th studio album, Hurts 2B Human, describes a similar narrative. In the track 'Can We Pretend', P!nk sings, “Honestly, reality, it bores me” but when it comes to digging into why she’s sad, P!nk can get very vulnerable and brazen about heartbreaking realities.  

In some of her tracks, P!nk also explores the theme of motherhood. It's another classic P!nk album that featured Dan Reyolds and other megastars, with amazing anthems full of confidence yet also showing vulnerability.
