P!nk's "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" vaults from #58 to #9 in its second week on the Hot 100. It's P!nk's third top 10 hit with an edgy title, following "U + Ur Hand" (#9 in 2007) and "F**kin' Perfect" (#2 in 2011). Paula Abdul had a #6 hit in 1991 titled "Blowing Kisses In The Wind." P!nk took that traditional romantic notion and turned it on its head. But while the "can-you-say-that?" title helped attract attention, the record's solid pop-rock craftsmanship is bringing it home.
The song is P!nk's 12th top 10 hit. She first cracked the top 10 in April 2000 with "There You Go." Billboard's Gary Trust notes that P!nk is in third place among female artists for most top 10 hits since January 2000. She trails only Rihanna (with 22) and Beyonce (with 14.) This week's move puts her ahead of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, who have each had 11 top 10 hits.Read More »from Week Ending July 15, 2012. Songs: Blow Me (One More Hit)
