Those who know me, know I am a huge P!nk fan. It has been a long five years waiting for a new album. I get it – two kids will put a damper on your time for making music.

I was happy to see her new release What About Us? show up on Spotify today.

I was a little underwhelmed by the song. Sure, it sounds good – I am just not sure I like the message. It comes across as tossing blame on our leaders (which I get) but removes personal responsibility for “having the answers.” It is written from a victim-hood standpoint.

I have my fingers crossed that when the entire album (Beautiful Trauma) is released on October 13th, it will have some fun tracks, some upbeat smack-talking tracks, some heartfelt love songs – just no more “poor me” tracks.
