I believe it has been one of the best duets in a long time, these features alot of the time can be pointless and just to give more publicity to the song. However with Just Give me a Reason I really believe Nate is the perfect addition to the song, as him and P!nk's vocals blend together so well. I think this is also P!nk's best song in a very long time, the song's video has had 10,000,000 views in 1 week. The song is really radio friendly, I think the song will be a massive hit for her, I will get 2 number 1.

Thoughts ?

It sounds more like a Fun. song than her song but it's an okay duet i have heard better. But agreed it is probably here best release in a long time and certainly the best from TTAL

Love love love this song. Ever since the album dropped. Deserves to be a big hit for her, the biggest for this era. I also think she will win big with this at the grammys next year.

Nice verses, annoying chorus.

It will be a moderate hit, but not #1. 'Blow Me' didn't go #1 and neither did 'Try' and those songs were actually promoted, so the new single would be lucky to get a top 20 peak in the UK.

Agree, this will be a big sleeper hit - I bet by April/May it will be one of the biggest songs of the year

I don't think it'll get to #1 in the US because they count streaming in their chart, and Pink's songs don't get streamed much (due to her target audience).

I don't think it'll get to #1 here either. It's very rare for an song released after an album to get to #1.

Pink knows how to do sleeper hits pretty well, so i wouldn't bet against JGMAR being a success

In fact, Pink herself managed this when she released Just Like A Pill as the 3rd single from Missundaztood, it went straight to number 1 in the UK! Let's hope she can do it again!

Not keen on this song, think there are much better songs on the album, but a lot of people seem to like it and I've already seen the video quite a bit so it may do well.

It was different back in the early 00's when it was all physical singles. Nowadays as soon as the album is released, all the songs on it are available to download, which makes it more difficult for songs released after albums to chart really high, as they'll have to climb up the chart.

Try deserved a number 1 to be fair, although it seems to have done really well without really being a smash.

Love P!nk.

The song has already made the top 40 according to mid weeks, so not bad so far.

My thoughts precisely!

I thought the verse started really well,but POOR chorus. Disappointing,

(Im a big Pink fan)

She could release a recording of her singing the phone book and it would go to number 1 over there. She is huge there.

I hope this does well for her world-wide. I didn't like it at first, but it has really grown on me the more I listen to it.

Pink has absolutely nailed it with the single choices so far! If Walk Of Shame is the 4th single then she'll have played it perfectly which will be thoroughly impressive considering how poor this album is!

Well it's by no means her strongest outing and there's a hell of a lot of filler on there so by her standards this album is poor! By no means the worst of last year though.
