Fourth number one album for P!nk puts her at same level as Adele and Beyonce

American musician P!nk has had her fourth UK number one album with Trustfall, according to Official Charts.

The 43-year-old singer, who has been bringing rock music energy to pop tunes since the 1990s, is tied since Friday with other female solo artists like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Adele and Beyonce, who are also on four.

Madonna still leads the female pack with 12 chart-topper records to her name including Like A Virgin, Confessions On A Dancefloor and Hard Candy as Sir Paul McCartney is the overall individual record holder with 23 number ones for his solo, The Beatles and Wings albums.

P!nk previously topped the charts with 2008’s Funhouse, 2017’s Beautiful Trauma and 2019’s Hurts 2B Human.

She told Official Charts: “Thank you everyone so, so, so much. I cannot believe it. I really can’t believe it.

“I love you guys, I had a great week with you over there in the UK and I really appreciate you.

“I’m glad that you love this record as much as I do. I can’t believe it, thank you!”

Her ninth studio album, Trustfall sees the pop star embrace country music and Americana while also staying true to her pop rock roots.

Elsewhere in the charts, rock band Inhaler debut their second studio album Cuts & Bruises at number two.

The group – which includes Bono’s son Elijah Hewson, Robert Keating, Josh Jenkinson and Ryan McMahon – previously became the first Irish act to top the UK chart in more than 10 years with their debut record It Won’t Always Be Like This in 2021, since The Script’s self-titled debut in 2008.
