Legendary punk-rocker Avril Lavigne released her third single Dumb Blonde featuring Nicki Minaj, off her upcoming album, Head Above Water, on Tuesday, 12 February 2019.
The Canadian-born singer was at her peak in the early 2000s with her rock anthems Sk8er Boi and Complicated, which catapulted the star into international success. Lavigne then released a host of sporadic albums which were met with a lukewarm response, although her upcoming album, Head Above Water, has already been critically acclaimed.
The new single has an early 2000s nostalgia, a sound that is expected from Lavigne. The catchy tune and quirky lyrics are equally matched by Nicki Minaj’s signature rapping which is the cherry on top of the soon-to-be hit song.
Dumb Blonde’s release was accompanied by a lyric video, which has garnered close to 1.8 million views on YouTube since its debut.
The single is available for purchase on iTunes.
