Avril Lavigne Releases New Song “Dumb Blonde” ft. Nicki Minaj

Published on: 2019/02/12 - in Entertainment

Avril Lavigne released her newest song “Dumb Blonde” today – the third release from her upcoming album “Head Above Water”. The song features singer-songwriter Nicki Minaj and follows Lavigne’s previous album releases “Tell Me It’s Over” and “Head Above Water“.

The full album will be available this Friday with the launch including performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on February 13, Good Morning America on February 15, and LIVE! With Kelly and Ryan on February 18.

Both the single and accompanying lyric video (below) for “Dumb Blonde” were released today with the two artists exchanging praise on social media just prior to it going online.

Nicki Minaj wrote that she used to drive to her pre-fame job at Red Lobster playing Avril’s songs for “an hour straight everyday for months”.  Lavigne responded by calling Nicki her favorite and saying she knew Minaj would be the perfect artist to collaborate with on “Dumb Blonde”.

When the song and lyric video went live earlier today, Lavigne called Nicki a “talented, strong woman and driving force”, adding that she listens to Minaj tunes “Fly”, “Starships” and “Bed” all the time.

Lavigne, who was raised in nearby Napanee, says her new song was written as “an anthem for anyone who has been stereotyped or talked down to.”
