P!nk Enjoys Astonishing Resurgence With Her New Song 'U + Ur Hand:'
# 1 AT TOP 40 RADIO TOP 10 ON 5 BILLBOARD CHARTS
Special 'American Idol' Performance Airs This Week
On the heels of a successful U.S. tour run with Justin Timberlake, singer-songwriter P!nk is enjoying a much deserved and amazing rebound with the growing popularity of her hit single, "U + Ur Hand," from her most recent album, I'm Not Dead.
Fueled by steady support at key radio stations around the country, "U + Ur Hand" jumps from #4 to the #1 song at Top 40 radio, according to R&R, a respected music industry publication. Additionally the single currently ranks in the top 10 of five Billboard music charts; #6 Hot 100 Airplay, #7 Pop 100, #9 Hot Digital Tracks, #9 Hot 100, and #8 Hot Dance Airplay. "U + Ur Hand" is her highest-ranking song since "Don't Let Me Get Me" in 2002. The renewed interest has ignited sales in I'm Not Dead and is pushing the album rapidly toward 4 million in worldwide sales.
At this years 2007 Australian MTV Awards P!nk won two awards; Download Of The Year for "Who Knew" and Best Female Artist for "U + Ur Hand" beating out artists such as Beyonce, Gwen Stefani, and Fergie.
Currently on a month-long Australian tour that kicked off in Perth and is scheduled to conclude in Brisbane, U.S. fans can catch P!nk's much-talked about "Dear Mr. President" performance on Jimmy Kimmel tonight and a special performance on American Idol airs this Wednesday, May 9th on Fox.
