P!nk and Psy Storm the Charts!

Grammy winning pop/rock singing sensation P!nk nabs her first # 1 album on the Billboard 200 this week as her brilliant new set, The Truth About Love (my album grade: A), debuts on top with a big 280,000 copies sold. That’s the third biggest debut week of the year following Madonna and Justin Bieber. Well done P!nk! The singer holds off several other debuts including the rap collection Cruel Summer led by Kanye West plus the latest from the Killers, the Ben Folds Five, rockers Grizzly Bear and the debut from pop starlet Carly Rae Jepsen.

Over on the Hot 100 Singles Chart, P!nk is also doing well with her latest “Blow Me (One Las Kiss)”. However, she has a challenge to move past Maroon 5‘s “One More Night” to get to the top, not to mention Kpop sensation Psy who vaults up from # 11 to # 2 with his incredibly catchy fad single “Gangnam Style”.
