It was dethroned by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Can't Hold Us," but Pink and Ruess' collaboration was number one for three weeks in a row.
Time for a little bragging now.
When I reviewed The Truth About Love, I pointed out that "Just Give Me A Reason" was a song worth some serious radio play:
"Just Give Me A Reason – It’s an incredible song – exactly what you’d expect in a collaboration between Nate Ruess, the lead vocalist of fun., and Pink. I didn’t even know Nate Ruess’ name before I Googled it to write this review, but I knew, right off, that it was ‘the guy from fun.’ when I heard him chime in on this track. I’m hoping this one hits the radio because I think it’d do really well. Let’s hope those in charge strike while the iron is hot and fun. is popular. Once again, it's something totally different from what Pink usually delivers."
Nice to see that it happened. After listening to Pink for so long and seeing other, less talented singers outshine her, I'm thrilled to see her achieve such success and even more thrilled to hear her on the radio during every drive to work in the morning.
