When I first heard Adam Lambert's recording of his future single "Whataya Want From Me," co-penned by pop goddess Pink with Shellback and Max Martin, I honestly wondered why Pink had never elected to release her own version, recorded way back when Adam was just a speck of glitter in Simon Cowell's eye. I mean, it's an amazing, pretty much perfect pop song, and if she'd put it out herself, it undoubtedly would have been a massive hit.
Thankfully, Pink passed "WWFM" on to Adam, who did her proud and scored a huge hit with it himself. Pink's loss was Glambert's gain, but now everyone wins...because after memorably performing "WWFM" on several European dates
, Pink is finally releasing her studio version on the international edition of her greatest-hits collection.
Yep, like I said, Pink made a big mistake giving this song up. But who sang it best? Well, that's kind of a moot debate. Pink and Adam, two of the finest belters working in pop today, both possess the vocal ranges to handle it magnificently; the arrangements on both recordings are practically identical; and a great ballad like "WWFM" is fairly impossible to muck up.
But I say there's only one true way to settle this matter: a singoff! What do I want from Pinkbert? A "WWFM" duet, stat. But until that happen in real-life, this fan-created mashup will have to do:
