Album: Can't Take Me Home
Producer: Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs
It's hard to remember now, especially since she's found her lane and rode it out, but Pink wasn't always the weirdo pop star she eventually became. On her first album, 2000's Can't Take Me Home, she was marketed as a halfway R&B star because...she was a white girl with attitude and a tongue ring so she couldn't be a pop princess? Okay, we don't really know how that idea came about but it sure felt that way when we heard songs like "There You Go."
Co-written by Kandi Burruss (yes, the one from Real Housewives of Atlanta) and produced by Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs (who had previously produced TLC's "No Scrubs"), "There You Go" sounds a lot like the songs Destiny's Child and Mya were releasing around the same time. But Pink was a fresh face and this was her breakout single, becoming a Top 10 hit.
It might not have been the best fit, but it was enough to propel her debut album Can't Take Me Home to double platinum success before setting up her true arrival the next year with "Get the Party Started." —Insanul Ahmed
