Pink is UK’s most played female artist of the 21st century, says PPL – NEWS WORLD UPDATE

Pink has been named the most played female artist of the 21st century in the UK, in a list compiled by music licensing company PPL.

The ranking is based on music usage and airplay data from British radio stations and television channels.

Pink has been played more by the numbers than Adele, Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

The American star, 42, has built a strong back catalog of enduring radio-friendly hits since 2000.

Pink’s debut album Can’t Take Me Home was released around the turn of the century, with an R&B flavor and hits like Most Girls, You Make Me Sick and There You Go.

The singer, whose real name is Alecia Moore, went in a more rocking direction with her second album, before embracing a slightly more poppy sound on many of her later records.

Hits such as Just Give Me A Reason, Try, What About Us, Sober and Walk Me Home have become an integral part of radio station playlists long after their release.

Madonna debuted at number two on the chart after a career spanning four decades during which she has released hit records including True Blue, Ray Of Light and Music.

In third place is Katy Perry, whose third album Teenage Dream was one of the most popular of the 2010s. Rihanna and Lady Gaga are fourth and fifth, respectively.

The UK is represented in the charts by acts such as Adele, who is in sixth place, and Little Mix, who takes ninth place.

Adele’s second studio album 21 is one of the most successful releases of all time, with over five million copies sold and the winning album of the year at the Grammys and the British.

The singer will make her musical comeback next week with the new single Easy On Me.

Although she is one of the best selling artists in the world, Adele has released only three studio albums to date, while Pink has released eight – which in turn has provided more possible material for radio play.

PPL’s ​​hit list marks the start of the celebrations ahead of the fourth edition of National Album Day on Saturday, October 16, which celebrates female artists this year.

Kylie Minogue, who finished eighth, said it was “such an honor to be one of the most played female artists of the 21st century in the UK and to be in such great company!”

She added: “It is mind-boggling to me and I am so touched to know that my music is still enjoyed by so many people.”

Peter Leathem, chief executive officer at PPL, said: “This chart brings together an incredible array of talents who have recorded some of the UK’s favorite music, including some of the biggest and most influential albums of all time.”
