Music heavyweights will be going head-to-head this coming week for the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. Pink’s album, ‘The Truth About Love’ is coinciding with Kanye West’s ‘Cruel Summer’ release on September 18th.

Both artists are phenomenal in their respective genres and they have been in the game for quite some time now. ‘The Truth About Love’ spawned hit single ‘Blow Me (Last Kiss)’ and ‘Cruel Summer’ is preceded by ‘Mercy’ featuring Big Sean, Pusha T and 2 Chainz. These songs have done very well on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, peaking within the Top 20.

This is going to be interesting indeed. So many aspects to point out from these artists. And to be honest, Pink and Kanye are more alike than we think. Both rebellious and always speaking their minds. Anyway, to be quite frank, it does not look good for Pink. Kanye West has always been known as the massive first week seller.

His previous, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ shifted 496 000 in its first week, where as Pink’s ‘Funhouse’ managed to push 180 000 in 2008. However, I have heard Pink’s album and it is epic. Every single track stands out and its consistent and solid. The sales projection will be in before Friday. This is going to be a mean battle. All I know is, ‘The Truth About Love’ will sell gradually and it will definitely surpass Mr West in the long run.
