It seems as though P!nk’s music has been the perfect way to get the party started over the last 20 years.

A recent study was conducted to determine which female artist has been the most played in the UK this century and the “Cover Me in Sunshine” singer came out on top. 

The first of P!nk’s eight studio albums came out in 2000, and she is believed to have sold over 40 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide since.

The list of most played female artists in Britain during the 21st century was based on airplay data and compiled by PPL (Phonographic Performance Limited) ahead of the UK’s National Album Day on October 16th.

The theme for 2021 is “celebrating women in music”.

While P!nk earned prime position, she was followed by Madonna, Katy Perry, and Rihanna, while Lady Gaga rounded out the top five. Adele came in 6th ahead of Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue, Little Mix, and Whitney Houston.
