P!nk is Back with “What About Us” Single & Video (Lyrics Review)

pink P!nk what about us new single music video lyrics review

P!nk has made a comeback in to what she does best-music. This time she has a whole album, ‘Beautiful Trauma,’ coming out on October 13, 2017. The first single off of this album is “What About Us” and P!nk delivers her usual powerful vocals and imagery in the song and the video.

Pink seems to be getting a little political with this new single as she questions the questionable areas in the society.

“Directed by Georgia Hudson and choreographed by The Goldenboyz, the video begins with audio of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie at the Republican National Convention giving a speech before then-candidate Donald Trump took the stage.” – etonline.com

The new Pink single shows the world in disarray, corrupted and destroyed by humanity itself.

Verse 1

We are searchlights, we can see in the dark
We are rockets, pointed up at the stars
We are billions of beautiful hearts
And you sold us down the river too far

In the first verse P!nk is talking about the power of the common people. We are the searchlights that seek truth in the darkness. We are the dreamers and builders of this world. And we are pure at heart until the politics pushed us down the drain. This is not a realization P!nk is willing to accept and “What About Us” is her voice.

Chorus

What about us?
What about all the times you said you had the answers?
What about us?
What about all the broken happy ever afters?
What about us?
What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
What about love? What about trust?
What about us?

P!nk is questioning everything. It is as if she has woken from a long sleep and her waking up call seems to have been the presidential election. And after a sweet blissful sleep, we are awaken to the bitterest truth-that the entire world is corrupt with politics.

Verse 2

We are problems that want to be solved
We are children that need to be loved
We were willin’, we came when you called
But man, you fooled us, enough is enough, oh

The second verse directly speaks about how easily the rulers make a fool out of the common man without realizing their true power. The corrupt soon forget who gave them the power, and this power is given, not taken.

Throughout the entire track, Pink is expressing her disgust towards the corrupt and power-hungry political system that has brought the entire world to a rotting dump.

It would be interesting to see the fan’s reaction to this song, as a comeback single from a radio silence of years. P!nk brings back her powerful and unique voice in this track and we have missed her so much.
