It was the year 2000 that will be remembered for the year Pink took the music world by storm. Her debut album went double platinum in the US and planted the seed for the rest of her oustanding career.
Who can forget when Pink burst onto the scene in 2000 with her debut single and gave a whole new meaning to the term girl power. Her bright locks were met with an equally vibrant personality and it quickly became evident that this star was going to be sticking around for a long time.
Pink followed up her debut with the equally empowering 'Most Girls' declaring that she wanted to find "real love" over any material possessions. The song also gave the US star her first of many top five singles.
The final release from debut album 'Can't Take Me Home' saw the singer involved in a true love hate relationship with her boyfriend - played out over the course of a week. The video also echoed scenes from American Beauty and sees Pink straddling a Santa Claus.
The 2001 release has been the singer's most successful selling album to date shifting five and a half million copies in the US and close to two million in the UK.
Written by former 4 Non Blondes front woman Linda Perry, the track saw Pink create one of the anthems of 2001 as she came back with a bang with album number two. The track has since been covered by the likes of Dame Shirley Bassey, Damien Rice and a short snippet from David Brent himself in The Office Christmas Special.
It was a chance for Pink to showcase her reflective and emotional side with the 2002 release as she claimed another top ten single and managed to take a pop at Britney Spears in the process. She sings: "I'm my own worst enemy," during the track and vents her frustrations at constantly being compared to the Pop Princess.
It was the song that gave Pink her first number one in the UK and sees the singer opening up about the desire to escape a painful relationship. The harsh subject matter was mirrored in one of the singer's darkest music videos to date complete with brunette locks.
The song sees the singer depicting the struggles and conflicts she endured as a child with her family and caused upset with her mum upon the track's release. "Can we work it out. Can we be a family, Promise I'll be better. Daddy please don't leave," she sings in the chorus as she lets loose with the rawest of emotions.
The singer's third album went platinum in the likes of the US, UK and Australia and gave such hit singles as 'Feel Good Time' and the boisterous 'Trouble'.
Pink picked up the pace once again in 2003 when she returned with third album 'Try This'. She teamed with William Orbit for the track which featured as part of the soundtrack for the movie Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.
She'd tasted Grammy Award success back in 2002 when she teamed with Lil' Kim, Christina Aguilera, Mia and Missy Elliot for 'Lady Marmalade' but this was the track where Pink got to take all the glory. She won Best Female Rock Vocal Performance ahead of the likes of Avril Lavigne and Michelle Branch.
Pink flaunted her raunchiest side yet to the eye-catching music video as she headed to the dance floor. It narrowly missed out on a top ten spot in the UK and was her first release in 2004.
Pink lets her aggression run loose once again for the final track to be lifted from her third album. She screams, "Why was I the last to know, that you weren't coming to my show". The video also pieced together footage from her European 'Try This' tour.
It's one of most striking pieces of artwork star and captures her personality perfectly. The album itself has produced six hit singles and hit the top three in the UK back in 2006.
The singer upset many of her female contemporaries and high-profile celebrities with the music video for the track - which poked fun at the likes of Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton and Mary-Kate Olsen. The promo was an instant hit with fans and earned her the Best Pop Video at the MTV VMAs 2006.
The song was compared to Kelly Clarkson by many critics upon its release with the pop rock elements echoing that of the American Idol champion. Its lyrics depict the tale of losing a friend to drugs and the track spent 36 weeks inside the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Pink got playful with her summer 2006 release and caused controversy for the explicit nature of her lyrics. "I'm not here for your entertainment. You don't really wanna mess with me tonight," she declares as the start of the chorus as she shows just why she wears the trousers!
The piano-led ballad saw Pink at her most vulnerable as she showcased her tender side. The video was filmed in London and sees the singer tearing up her hotel room as she speaks of a battle with inner demons.
Featuring American folk duo the Indigo Girls, the song acted as an open letter to US President at the time, George W. Bush. She went on record saying it was one of the most important songs of her career.
For the final release from her album 'I'm Not Dead', Pink opens up about trying to find space from a clingy lover. "Go away, give me a chance to miss you. Say goodbye - it will make me want to kiss you," she sings in the power pop smash.
The 2008 release received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album in 2008 and has sold just short of two million copies in the US alone.
It's her most successful single to date, giving her her first US number one and hitting the summit in 14 countries. The track was the first to be taken from her 2008 album 'Funhouse' and speaks about the fallout from her separation to husband Carey Hart. The video was another chance to be creative and colourful and even featured a cameo from her motocross riding partner.
The song was written after the singer was hosting a party where everyone was drinking exact for her. "'Sober' is a dark, kind of sad song. And it’s about the vices that we choose and I had this idea in my head, ‘Like how do I feel this good sober?...I don’t know it’s just a really, really personal beautiful song, one of my favourites," she stated in an interview.
Pink sings of not being able to let go of a bad relationship despite knowing the negative effect it's having upon her. During the video for the track, the US star goes through an array of elaborate schemes to keep the male protagonist from escaping.
The track is said to feature her favourite lyric from the 'Funhouse' album - "I'm the instigator of underwear showing up here and there." The cheeky track showcases the lively and humorous side of her music and offers another taste of her playful spirit.
The title track from her fifth album was nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards in 2010 and was co-written by No Doubt star Tony Kanal. The musician also makes a cameo in the promo as she dances around a fiery desert.
"It's the vulnerable weak side of me that I don't let out very often," Pink said at the time of the release of the song. The soft ballad lets her vocals shine as she pleads for reconciliation.
For the final release from 'Funhouse', Pink talks about taking a leap of faith and the power of love. She sings: "Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone," as she takes a look at the little things that make a big difference in people's lives.
As the name suggests, there is still more to come from Pink and her fans can't wait for volume two to be released.
The song sees Pink at her most powerful as she belts out the lyrics to the track, which was taken from her 'Greatest Hits….So Far' collection. She confessed that the track was written for as a celebration of the people who ever felt left out from the popular crowd." It also gave her a second stint at the top of the Billboard Hot 100.
The main inspiration for the song was the singer's husband Carey Hart and gave her another Grammy nomination for the 2012 ceremony. The lyrics speak about how someone is still perfect even at their lowest moment and features a strong music video starring Napoleon Dynamite actress Tina Majorino.
The star's sixth studio album was the first from the singer to hit the number one spot in the US and peaked at two in the UK.
Pink returned in 2012 with another massive single and claimed the number one spot on the Vodafone Big Top 40 when it was released in September. The song was almost titled 'Let's Throw In The Towel' according to co-writer Greg Kurstin who helped come up with the final version.
The music video for the song was described as Pink as the most fun and challenging she's ever contemplated. She also recently perfumed the same acrobatic routine during her performance at the American Music Awards 2012. The track is the second to be taken from her latest album 'The Truth About Love'.
