Avril Lavigne is finally back after a long hiatus, and every new single she drops is here to prove that her next album was worth the wait. “Dumb Blonde” is no exception and it features a surprise appearance from famous rapper Nicki Minaj.

Lavigne’s latest single is probably the most radio-friendly and catchy song on her upcoming album Head Above Water. Its release is a perfect way to promote her highly-anticipated record, which is hitting the shelves on February 15.

The Canadian singer explained her latest single was inspired by something she actually went through. She admitted crossing paths with people who tried to put her down by calling her a dumb blonde, but she embraced this label and used it to fight back.

“It started as a misogynist intimidated by my independence. I just thought that was really unfair. If you’re a leader or you’re a strong woman or someone who has an opinion or is driven, you shouldn’t be made to feel bad about that,” said Lavigne.
