P!nk’s new album, Beautiful Trauma, channels the cliché she has been expressing throughout her career, with times of her maturity and brattiness.
The opening title track, shares similar factors to previous P!nk singles, “Just Give Me a Reason,” featuring Fun. front man, Nate Ruess in 2013, and “Try” in 2012 – each about trying to maintain an ending relationship.
At some points, “Beautiful Trauma” is mature – with lyrics like “The pill I keep taking, the nightmare I’m waking, there’s nothing…” and then later imitating Fergie with the change-up of her vocals and awkward lyrics.
“Revenge” is one of the more anticipated songs because it features Eminem. The song becomes awkward and odd, when Eminem’s rapping is overshadowed by P!nk’s.
The last song, “You Get My Love” displays P!nk’s elegant vocal ranges and promises growth.
