English Singer, songwriter, and record producer Pink Pantheress exemplifies what happens when you seize your opportunities. She came into the limelight on the fame of her TikTok shots, but there’s so much more to her. In fact, this was not her first time making music. She began writing music for her friends in high school before venturing out on her own. In 2021, her single ‘Pain,’ initially released on TikTok, became a viral sensation. This began her mainstream music career as we know it. Within a short span, Pink Pantheress released her breakout single ‘Break It Off.’ This earned her the attention of Elektra Records and Parlophone Records, which went on to sign her.
Pink’s music style is inherently catchy. This is evident from her single “just for me,” which she released as a snippet on TikTok. Eventually, this became her second top 40 track. ‘Just for me’ also peaked at number 36 on the official UK singles chart. Pink Pantheress describes her music style as nostalgic because it features samples from jungle, funk, pop, and dance from the 1990s and 2000s. She lists artists like Linkin Park and Panic at the Disco as some of her biggest influences. Her voice has been described as ‘sweet but unsettling’ by the Guardians Michael Cragg, while NPR’s Vanessa handy says her music is ‘coy and unassuming’. This is among a comprehensive list of industry professionals who will enable her to move onto big things in music.
