Pink singer and pop singer, Phoebe Bridgers, has taken the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a second week with her third full-length album, Pink, and she has now been in the top 10 for a week.
The British pop star, whose first album, Love Me Harder, was released in 2011, is the second-biggest-selling artist of all time on the chart, behind Whitney Houston, and her album is the fastest selling of all-time, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.
“I’ve never been more happy in my life,” she said in a statement.
“This has been a journey that I have had to go through, but it has also been a great opportunity to share new music with the world.”
I am really excited for this new chapter and to work with the incredible team behind the music I have been working on for the past few years.
“Love Me Hardest is a song that is just so personal and raw, and I am really proud to be able to bring this to the world and share it with you.”‘

She was also named one and a half times in the Top 10 of the Alternative Albums chart in March, with My Love Is Strange.
The pop star has also earned more than 20 nominations, including four Grammys, two Golden Globes, and two Oscars.
In January, she was awarded the Academy Award for Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Motion Picture, for her performance in The Theory of Everything, and the Grammy for Best Country Album for The Great Gatsby.
“Pink is a new kind of pop superstar, a bold new breed of performer, and a bold and daring one at that,” said Nielsen Soundscan executive vice president of music, Tom Wilson.
“The songs on Pink are not just about love and friendship, but about freedom and acceptance, the freedom to live one’s life however you want and the freedom of the universe to love you back.”
As she continues to evolve as a musician, singer, songwriter and artist, we are thrilled to have her in the Billboard Top 10 chart, and we look forward to continuing to celebrate her music and artists with a special edition Pink T-shirt and pink t-shirt.
