P!nk songs come and go like seasons, many times she writes songs for other artists, and sometimes she writes those songs for herself to release them one day, but she rather gives them to other artists to release them. We collected every song that P!nk passed to other artists.
What do you have to know about the songs that P!nk gave to other artists? Maybe you didn’t know, but when P!nk gives a song to someone, she records her own version in the studio, so you could be able to hear those songs with P!nk’s voice, but she’s not releasing those songs, this is why you can’t listen to them, but at least you can imagine what could be if they were available on the internet.
First of all, if you don’t want to scroll then here’s the video edition:
Before P!nk became P!nk, she was in an R&B girl-band called “Choice”.
In the summer of 1997, they recorded the song called “Stay”, which later was given to Destiny’s Child and they released it on their second CD.
Interesting fact: Beyoncé heard the whole unreleased Choice – P!nk album, and she picked “Stay”. She said it made her cry.
IF I EVER SEE HEAVEN AGAIN
Another P!nk / Choice song. As it was said, before P!nk became P!nk, she was in an R&B girl-band called “Choice”.
In the summer of 1997, they recorded the song called “If I Ever See Heaven Again”, which later was released by i5 and Jessica Folcker.
“Half Love” was originally written by P!nk, Jack Antonoff, and Sam Dew.
Originally P!nk sang it, but her name was taken out from the writers’ list, and it got released by Red Hearse in 2019 without P!nk.
By the way, “Half Love” was planned to be released on “Beautiful Trauma” and “Hurts 2B Human”.
DANCE WITH ME
Kelly Clarkson asked P!nk for featuring on “Dance With Me” on her 2015 electropop album “Piece By Piece”.
P!nk didn’t answer Kelly Clarkson, so she didn’t appear on the final version.
COURAGE TO CHANGE
P!nk and Sia made “Courage To Change” in 2015. P!nk’s released song “Courage” and “Courage To Change” are not the same songs. Originally, P!nk sang it with Sia, it was a duet.
The lyrics weren’t the same either. In 2020, Sia released a P!nk-like version of “Courage” called “Courage To Change”.
Sia re-recorded the song, so it’s probably not that demo duet
that they recorded in 2015.
Sia wrote “Quit You” in 2016. The track was originally recorded by P!nk, but it was eventually given to Cashmere Cat for his debut album “9”, with vocals by Ariana Grande. Reportedly, it was a duet between P!nk and Sia.
Linda Perry wrote and released the song called “Shame” in 1996.
In 2001, it was given to P!nk, who recorded her own version in the studio, but it has never been released.
Linda Perry wrote “Bill” in the late ’90s. She gave it to P!nk to release it on “Try This”, but it didn’t make on the album. Linda performed it a few times. For example, an acoustic show at Moondog Cafe, LA in 1999, or during a release interview of Christina Aguilera’s album “Stripped” in 2002.

SINCE U BEEN GONE

Max Martin and Dr. Luke revealed that they had originally intended P!nk to sing it, however, she turned it down. After she turned it down, it was offered to Hilary Duff, but she couldn’t sing those high notes, so Kelly Clarkson got and released the song.
“Sorries” is a song from 2010. It hasn’t been released, so P!nk gave “Sorries” to Andee. Originally, P!nk sang it with Kara DioGuardi. P!nk’s version ft. Kara DioGuardi was leaked on the 6th of July 2020.
