P!nk, whose real name is Alecia Moore, joined forces with Chris Stapleton for a brand-new duet titled “Just Say I’m Sorry.”
The GRAMMY award-winning superstars reunited for an emotionally charged new song that is the closing track on P!nk’s new album, TRUSTFALL.
Co-written by P!nk and Stapleton, “Just Say I’m Sorry” is a tune that finds the two hitmakers pleading with their significant others to put their pride aside and live up to their mistakes.
“Just say, “I’m sorry” / It’s not the hardest thing to do / Just say you’re wrong sometimes / And I’ll believe you ’cause I love you / Just say, “I’m sorry,” P!nk and Stapleton sing, while flawlessly blending their signature vocals together on the final chorus of the tune.
P!nk and Stapleton previously collaborated on “Love Me Anyway,” a duet that appears on P!nk’s 2019 project, Hurts 2B Human. The pair delivered the live television debut of the tune during the 53rd Annual CMA Awards.
“He’s my person. He’s my favorite voice today in music, and I just love him,” P!nk previously shared of Stapleton while chatting with Entertainment Tonight on the 2019 CMA Awards red carpet. ”I can’t believe he said yes [to being on the song]. Truly, he’s the most amazing songwriter, he’s the most amazing human. I love his family, they’re so kind and humble. He loves music and he loves to collaborate, so, here I am.”
The pop phenomenon and country superstar also performed the tune during the final date of P!nk’s Beautiful Trauma World Tour in May of 2019.
“One of my absolute favorite songwriters, favorite voice, and person. Chris Stapleton,” P!nk captioned a clip of their 2019 performance. “What an absolute honor to share a stage with you my friend. ‘Love me Anyway.’”
This isn’t P!nk’s first time teaming up with a country superstar. The 43-year-old Pennsylvania native previously collaborated with Kenny Chesney (“Setting The World On Fire”) and Keith Urban (“One Too Many”).
“Just Say I’m Sorry” is a track from P!nk’s ninth studio album, TRUSTFALL, which arrived on Friday (Feb. 17).
“I can’t believe this day is finally here!!” Pink wrote on social media. “I have been waiting almost patiently to share my heart and soul with all of you. This album means so much to me it’s silly sauce. I hope this becomes the ‘I remember where I was when I listened to that album’ for you.”
The project features 13 tracks, including her current single “Never Gonna Not Dance Again.” In addition to her collaboration with Stapleton, the project also includes duets with alternative rock/folk band The Lumineers and Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit.
P!nk’s new album serves as the follow-up to her first live collection, All I Know So Far: Setlist, as well as her 2019 project, Hurts 2B Human, which included fan-favorite hits such as “Walk Me Home,” “Can We Pretend,” “Hustle,” “Love Me Anyway,” and more.
P!NK will soon take her new album on the road as she recently announced that she will be embarking on a massive 2023 Stadium Tour, dubbed the Summer Carnival Tour. The Summer Carnival Tour kicks off on July 24 in Toronto, Ontario at Rogers Centre and continues through October 9, where the tour will wrap up in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field.
