How Pink's Hurts 2B Human album performed around the world

Pink has been trapezing her way to Number 1 around the world.

Pink has been cleaning up on albums charts across the globe.

The American songstress normally takes her time between album cycles, yet just a year-and-a-half after hitting Number 1 worldwide with Beautiful Trauma, the singer returned with her eighth studio album Hurts 2B Human.

Originally pencilled in as an EP, the album came to be after her chosen collaborators said yes in their droves, resulting in some stunning duets with Khalid, Chris Stapleton and Wrabel.

We know that Hurts 2B Human reached Number 1 in the UK, with Pink being pretty chuffed to receive her Official Charts Number 1 award last week. The album even achieved the biggest week of digital sales so far in 2019, surpassing Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next.

Hurts 2B Human has so far topped the charts in nine different countries - let's view its impact around the world.


After originally being predicted to debut at Number 2 by Hits Daily Double, Pink tweeted that she needed someone to "cuddle me while I cry" after learning that her album had in fact exceeded earlier projections. Hurts 2B Human debuted at the top of the Billboard 200, outperforming new entries at Numbers 2 and 3 from worship band Hillsong United and rapper ScHoolboy Q respectively. The record is Pink's third US chart topping album in a row.


Australia is arguably Pink's most successful territory, with her claiming nine chart topping singles Down Under, the second-most in chart history. Her Aussie fans haven't disappointed her yet again, taking Hurts 2B Human to the top spot, making it her sixth consecutive Number 1 album. Pink outsold new entries from Rob Thomas and and Aussie natives King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.


Ireland was another country where Pink outsold homegrown talent. Hurts 2B Human fended off In The End, the final studio album from Limerick group The Cranberries.

New Zealand

Pink debuted at Number 1 in New Zealand, dethroning Billie Eilish's debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. New entries eclipsed in the Top 5 include Salvation Army charity album Offering featuring Kiwi artists Stan Walker, Kimbra and Dave Dobbyn at Number 3, and Aldous Harding's critically-acclaimed collection Designer at Number 5.


Becoming her eighth Top 5 album on German soil, Hurts 2B Human became Pink's fourth album to peak at Number 2, finishing behind rapper Capital Bra, who recently became Germany most-streamed artist of all-time. His latest album CB6 was released physically the same week as Hurts 2B Human, overtaking the Number 5 peak it debuted at two weeks prior based on downloads and streams only.
