Listen to Avril Lavigne collaborate with Nicki Minaj on new song 'Dumb Blonde'
By NME Magazine
The rapper has been a big fan of the pop star for years
The track is taken from Lavigne’s forthcoming new album ‘Head Above Water’ and follows the recent release of her break-up banger ‘Tell Me It’s Over’.
‘Dumb Blonde’ has been released today (February 12), and you can watch the lyric video for the track below.
Tweeting about ‘Dumb Blonde’ last week, Lavigne wrote: “Never let anyone put you down for being who you are. Stand up. Fight. Be you. Love. Be genuine. Kind. Find yourself and own it. Fuck stereotypes.”
Minaj has long been a fan of the ‘Complicated’ singer. Tweeting ahead of the song’s release, Minaj wrote: “I used to drive to my job @ Red Lobster playing this woman’s album for an hour straight everyday 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.”
Lavigne returned the compliment today, writing: “It’s out!!!! #DumbBlonde with the legendary Nicki Minaj!! 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!”
‘Head Above Water’ is out this Friday, February 15.
