Pop stars Lily Allen and Pink have teamed up for a fun, spunky “love” ballad called “True Love.” The upbeat song and title combo can be sort of misleading, since the song’s lyrics describe a somewhat dysfunctional relationship. The pop rocker and British sensation are the perfect artist’s to tag team this song, both edgy enough to sing about a seemingly dark situation, while maintaining a fun and playful vibe.

Pink, with hits like “Stupid Girls” and “U + Ur Hand,” brought sass to the duet, with lyrics like “At the same time I want to hug you/ I want to wrap my hands around your neck...I hate you/ I really hate you so much/ I think it must be true love.” She pokes fun at the duality of relationships and admits to all the tiny little details that go wrong when dealing with significant others.

Allen is a perfect match for Pink, bringing her own spunky fire to the track. “True Love” has the same basic concept as her hit “Smile,” blending an upbeat, poppy melody with harsh, dark words. In Allen’s verse, she sings about frustration meeting acceptance. “Sometimes I wonder how we ever came to be/ but without you I’m incomplete.” Allen makes a comeback to music with this song, previously being on hiatus for a couple years to concentrate on family life.

The two performed this song for the first time last month at a Los Angeles concert. It will be released on Pink’s new album, “The Truth About Love,” on Tuesday. Allen has also returned to the studio to record a new album, and has announced she is changing her professional name to Lily Rose Cooper.

Whatever these girls have in store, we’re bound to listen. We can always expect the unexpected with these talented, boundary-pushing artists.
