We’re just two weeks away from a whole new P!nk album y’all!
Following the release of lead single “Walk Me Home” and “Hustle,” we’ve been given further access into the hit-maker’s eighth studio album, Hurts 2B Human, with the release of a third teaser: “Can We Pretend,” a reflective slice of uptempo deliciousness produced by EDM trio Cheat Codes (who are best known for their hits with Demi Lovato and Little Mix.)
The song finds P!nk diving into somewhat new territory for her as she reminisces about a time before social media and 24-hour news feeds across waves of infectious synths and gripping bass.
“So can we pretend/ That I’m twenty-two today/ Dancin’ on the tables with you? (Oh yeah)/ Can we pretend/ That we all end up okay?/ I just wanna forget with you (Oh yeah)/ Can we pretend/ That we both like the president?/ Can we pretend…,” she urges before the radio-ready, post-chorus drop comes surging through the speakers.
Truthfully, the production sounds a bit 2011 and late, but at the same time, it is genuinely nice to hear P!nk top-line a more dance-centric soundscape. We’ve had a shortage of these dance-ready cuts from our pop girls as of late, so I’ll take it god damn it!
