She’s arguably the biggest music star in Australia these days. He’s the frontman for one of the hottest new bands on planet pop. So together, they should prove to be an unstoppable pop force right? If early indications are anything to go by, the pairing of US songstress P!nk and Fun. frontman Nate Ruess for P!nk’s new single ‘Just Give Me A Reason’ is a smash hit.
After the video premiered on the ‘Today Show’ this morning, the song has bulleted into the top five on the local iTunes chart – and it’s not hard to understand why.
An impassioned track about the breakdown of a relationship, the vocal harmonies between P!nk and Nate are rather superb – and P!nk (as always) has the ability to grasp the emotion of the lyrics she’s singing. After all, she (along with Nate) wrote most of them.
We’d have loved a little more drama in the song straight after P!nk’s almighty high note around the 2:45 mark, but that’s just nit-picking… ‘Just Give Me A Reason’ is a No.1 in waiting.
