NEW YORK (AP) — Billboard has named Pink its woman of the year.

Billboard announced Monday that the pop singer will receive the honor at its annual Women in Music event Dec. 10 in New York City.

Pink's sixth album, "The Truth About Love," has sold 1.7 million albums since it was released last year. It launched three Top 10 hits, including the No. 1 jam "Just Give Me a Reason."

Past recipients of Billboard's woman of the year award include Beyonce, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.

Pink is currently on her international "The Truth About Love Tour."
