Pink is the most played female artist during 21st century

The hottest color in the UK is… Pink! The singer was the most played female artist during the 21st century with Madonna and Rihanna trailing behind


While Pink is famous in America, it appears her star has risen to legendary status in the United Kingdom. 

The singer, 42, was the most-played female artist in the UK since the 21st century began according to music licensing company PPL.   

Music usage and air play data from radio and television stations across the country determined Pink’s top spot on the list.

Behind the Just Give Me a Reason singer were songstresses like Madonna, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Beyonce and many more.

Pink, whose real name is Alecia Moore, has released eight solo albums and one collaborative album under the band name You+Me alongside musician Dallas Green. 

Other singers made the list with far fewer songs that the radio could play. For example, Adele, who ranked sixth, has released just three studio albums.

Other artists have a much larger library than Pink, yet she still beat them out. Madonna has been making music for decades but still finished behind the Sober singer.  

Australian singer Kylie Minogue, 53, told the BBC that making the list was, ‘such an honor.’ 

‘It’s mind-blowing to me and I’m so touched to know my music is continuing to be enjoyed by so many people,’ the Can’t Get You Out of My Head singer said. She finished eighth. 

Some of the other notable names on the list were Lady Gaga, fifth, Whitney Houston, 10th, Taylor Swift, 11th, and Ariana Grande, 20th.

While Pink’s career is still trending upward, her personal life has hit some turmoil lately. 

The singer’s husband of 15 years, motocross star Carey Hart, underwent a pair of surgeries in the past month to replace discs in his back and neck. 

Specifically, Hart had an M6 disc replacement — a procedure in which an artificial disc is placed in the spine that mimic’s its natural structure and movement. 

In the past, the father of two thanked the Try singer and said, ‘To my amazing wife/nurse who has taken amazing care of me through all of this. I love you baby.’
