P!nk releases next promo single ‘Whatever You Want’
We had to wait for years for P!nk to make a comeback, but now that she is finally releasing new music again, there is no stopping her anymore. In August she returned with the successful dance inspired single ‘What About Us’, which is still making waves in the international charts. Last week title track from the upcoming album ‘Beautiful Trauma’ was launched and this week she drops ‘Whatever You Want’.
Where ‘Where About Us’ marked a change to a lighter and more electronic direction for P!nk, ‘Beautiful Trauma’ saw her update the typical P!nk sound to a 2017 production. ‘Whatever You Want’ is possibly even more P!nk by the numbers. It is one of those midtempo pop tunes with a belting chorus of which P!nk always collects a few on her albums. Lyrically, it is not the first time this album era that she lowers herself to cliches. This time around it is the line ‘It’s always darkest before the light’ that takes away from the message of the song due to overusage. Probably the least refreshing track of the three so far which makes it a less suitable single choice, but still a more than serviceable album track.
