Hustle
by Pink

Album: Hurts 2B Human (2019)
  • This song finds Pink in a relationship where she feels her lover is "hustling" – as in deceiving – her into believing that he cares. The singer warns him that she won't be taken advantage of anymore.

    You took my love, mistook it for weakness
    I guarantee I won't repeat this, no
    Don't try to hustle me
    I live my life like a bullet in a gun, give you all my love till my patience is done
    Oh no, don't try to hustle me


    Pink isn't going to put up any longer with being mistreated by her man.
  • Pink wrote the bouncy track with Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds and with Jorgen Odegard, whose other collaborations with Reynolds include "Bad Liar."
