I'm wagering everyone in the world already new this, but I just found it out, so here goes: Pink originally recorded Whataya Want from Me! Say whaaat!!! That's not all, she co-wrote it (with Max Martin, and Shellback) for her album Funhouse, but for some odd reason it didn't make it onto the finished product. Fast forward to 2010 and her version finally gets a release on the international copy of the Greatest Hits... So Far!!!, allowing us all to hear it! (So I'm only 3 years late to this party!)
After initially being rejected by our pop-rock princess, the song made it to the hands of American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert, who promptly nabbed it for his 2009 début album, For Your Entertainment. And what a smart move that was, because it gave him his first Billboard top ten single, and it scored a Grammy nod for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance! So all seems to have worked out well in the end!
But what do you think? Do you think Alecia should have kept Whataya Want from Me for herself? Or do you think Adam's voice was better suited for the track? Let your voice be known by commenting and voting in the poll, below.
[Highlight for my opinion: As much as I love Pink, I have to give this one to Mr. Lambert. His vocal brought more emotion and more variety to the track than Pink did. ]
