Pink and Eminem liked working together so much on his 2010 Recovery track, “Won’t Back Down,” that when she needed some assistance on her forthcoming The Truth About Love, she asked the Detroit-bred MC to help her out.
“He said, ‘Do you want to do a song with me?’ ‘F— yeah!’ I said, ‘Do you want to do a song with me?’ and he said, ‘F— yeah!” Handshake. Nothing signed. Done,” she told Australia’s Herald Sun about their deal which led to an “alternative club banger” dubbed “Here Comes the Weekend.”
While fans will have to wait to hear their second collabo, she shared that she thinks the twosome may have a third, which will focus on their equally sassy and witty sensibilities. She added, “I think we have another song in our future that will be funny and sh– talking.”
In addition to Em, Pink also got some help from Lily Allen (now Lily Rose Cooper) on a track called “True Love” and Fun.’s Nate Ruess on a tune billed as “Just Give Me a Reason.” But, there’s another collaboration that just might have all those others beat. She told us earlier this summer that her, daughter Willow also appears on the album.
“She plays bells on ‘How Come You’re Not Here,’ and she plays bass on a song called ‘Timebomb.’ She’s actually quite talented for a 13-month-old!” Pink said. “There was a basket of sh–, and she came over and pulled out the bells and started banging on them, and I was like, ‘Record it!’ And then she went up to the bass guitar on ‘Timebomb’ and started plucking away. She’s actually pretty good! She’s better on bass than I am! She plays piano, she bangs sh–, she’s either going to be violent or a percussionist … or a violent percussionist.”
