Avril Lavigne shares latest track off her upcoming new record

Featuring Nicki Minaj, Dumb Blonde is serious stan material. 

Eight-time Grammy nominee and global recording superstar Avril Lavigne has released her new track Dumb Blonde featuring Nicki Minaj, via BMG Records. The single gives fans another glimpse into her forthcoming album, being released this Friday, 15 February.

The release comes after Lavigne teased the song on her Twitter last week, describing it as a song that reminds you to “never let anyone put you down for being who you are. Stand up. Fight. Be you.”

The sassy track follows the release of first single, Head Above Water – a self-written anthem about overcoming her lyme disease that has earned over 165 million streams so far – and Tell Me It’s Over– a track about finally leaving a tumultuous relationship. Both tracks were met with praise from fans and critics alike. Vogue Magazine described Head Above Water as “a fierce piano ballad that documents a culminating moment in Lavigne’s years-long struggle with Lyme disease” and on Tell Me It’s Over, TIME Magazine says she “has never sounded stronger, or more confident.”
