Avril Lavigne and Nicki Minaj team up on empowering new single ‘Dumb Blonde’

Avril Lavigne ain’t no ‘Dumb Blonde’, she ain’t no stupid Barbie doll. She’s got her game on. Watch her, watch her, watch her prove you wrong!

For her incredible new single, pop punk princess Avril Lavigne has joined forces with rap queen Nicki Minaj. The bombshells have released one of the hottest collaborations of recent times and they’re raising hell for anyone who attempts to put them down.

At its essence, ‘Dumb Blonde’ is an uplifting track about female empowerment and tearing down misogynistic stereotypes. It was co-written by: Avril, Nicki, Bonnie McKee and Mitch Allan.

Posting her new single on social media, Avril Lavigne said: “It’s out!!!! #DumbBlonde with the legendary @NickiMinaj!! Nicki is such a talented, strong woman and driving force. I listen to Fly, Starships and Bed all the time. Having her on the song is so special to me. We wrote Dumb Blonde as an anthem for anyone who has been stereotyped or talked down to. Keep your confidence up and don’t let anyone tell you how to be. I hope you love it!

Nicki Minaj also shared ‘Dumb Blonde’ online. She showed her love for Avril and tweeted: “I used to drive to my job @ Red Lobster playing this woman’s album for an hour straight every day for months. Crying to “I’m With You”, blasting “Complicated” “Things I’ll Never Say” “Nobody’s Fool” “Sk8er Boi”. OMG. This woman is so unbelievably talented.

‘Dumb Blonde’ is currently available here on iTunes and here on Spotify. The infectious anthem is the third single to be lifted from Avril’s highly anticipated sixth studio album ‘Head Above Water’ which is set for release this Friday 15th February. It follows the title track and ‘Tell Me It’s Over‘.

From power ballads to soulful numbers and huge pop anthems, Avril Lavigne continues to prove that she has perfected numerous musical styles. Each single from ‘Head Above Water’ offers something different and we can’t wait to hear the rest of the album!

When I'm not writing articles or travelling through time and space in the Tardis, I love singing along to Avril Lavigne and other pop/rock music. I also enjoy hunting demons with Sam and Dean Winchester! Twitter: @MarkWillis1993
