P!nk

I’ve always considered myself more a fan of P!nk herself than her music — since breaking on the scene in 2000, she has always seemed to carry herself with a strength and sense of self that I could admire, but I’ve never delved deeper into her catalog than what I’ve heard on the radio. However, after watching the video for “Try,” the second single off P!nk’s recently released seventh studio album, The Truth About Love, that may have to change.

Directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Cure) and choreographed by The Golden Boyz RJ Durell and Nick Florez (Madonna, Zumanity) along with stunt/aerial choreographer and P!nk’s trapeze partner Sebastien Stella (Water For Elephants), the video is absolutely stunning. It features P!nk and a male counterpart, New York dancer Colt Prattes, engaged in an interpretation of the Apache Dance, an aggressive yet graceful give-and-take that ranges in tone from violent to sexual to everything in between.

P!nk has stated that, “Making this video was the most fun I’ve ever had in my entire career. I never wanted it to end. It’s my favorite video ever,” and I can definitely see why. It’s like a two-person Cirque du Soleil performance, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen P!nk look more beautiful than she does in this video, covered in multi-colored dust and putting those enviable abs to the test.

Check out the video for yourself below, and be sure to let me know what you think in the comments. Also, if I am going to go back and check out the rest of P!nk’s catalog, what albums do you recommend I start with?
