What Genre Is Pink?

Pink has been in the game for over two decades, yet it still somehow feels like she’s just getting the party started.

Pink’s unique style and personality have gotten lost since she first began making jams in the 1990s.

She’s evolved from R&B into a more traditional pop artist, but she’s touched on a range of sounds that have all added up to her massively successful career. 

Pink’s music genres


She’s much edgier than some of her more sterilized peers, but don’t sleep on the fact that Pink is, in fact, a pop girl.

Early hits like “Get the Party Started” solidified her as radio-friendly, yet able to make tracks that are right at home at the club. 

In one of her most formidable pop offerings, Pink collabed with Missy Elliott, Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, and Mya for the iconic remake of “Lady Marmalade.”

The star’s pop career has evolved over the years, and while it probably can’t be seen as typical bubblegum pop like Ariana Grande or Katy Perry, it’s even better because she never gives up her rough, raspy sound. 

Pop Rock

Pop rock isn’t Pink’s only possiblility, but this genre is really what she’s arguably best known for. 

Pink second album, “M!ssundaztood,” saw her turn toward a more distinctive pop-rock sound. 

“So What” was another fun pop-rock track that was influenced by her real-life separation from her husband Carey Hart

She kept up the good work in the genre with a collab with Nate Ruess for “Just Give Me a Reason,” her fourth number-one single and a defining track of the 2010 – 2015 pop scene. 


Tracks like “There You Go” and “Most Girls” were clear products of the late 90s and early 2000s. Actually, her entire debut album, “Can’t Take Me Home,” is a testament to the ruling genre of R&B during this era. 

This genre for her was pretty short and sweet, and it still influences her sound all these years later. 

Lyrically, Pink hasn’t abandoned her tendency to explore her pain through song, which is one of the core tenets of R&B.


Pink has taken on plenty of roles within the industry, yet her talent and appeal have remained the one true thing. 

Not many artists can say they’ve had the life and career that Pink has because, rest assured, this chick is one of a kind.
