Pink has yet to score a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, but her latest LP ‘The Truth About Love’ is poised to be her first, staving off G.O.O.D. Music’s ‘Cruel Summer’ compilation.

According to Billboard, Pink’s sixth studio album may debut at the top of the chart with 210,000 to 220,000 copies sold. Meanwhile, the Kanye West-presented compilation may be just shy of the honor with 170,000 to 190,000 copies sold.

‘Cruel Summer’ hit the iTunes Store late on its release day (Sept. 18), which could have affected sales figures. The label has not given an official reason for the delay, but sources say that a mastering issue held up the release.

Pink has broken the top 10 with each of her albums. In 2002, ‘Missundaztood’ peaked at No. 6, while 2003’s ‘Try This’ hit No. 9. ‘I’m Not Dead’ landed in the No. 6 spot in 2006; ‘Funhouse’ rose to No. 2 in 2008; and ‘Greatest Hits. . . So Far!!!’ scored the No. 5 position in 2011.

The first ‘Truth About Love’ single, ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss),’ was released in July, peaking at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. The 33-year-old singer unveiled her second single, ‘Try,’ on Sept. 6. Pink’s VH1 Storytellers will air on Nov. 13 at 11PM, and will undoubtedly help boost further sales of her latest release.
