Avril Lavigne’s ‘Head Above Water’ pop cut gets the video treatment.
I’m not entirely sure how to feel about this. Avril and Nicki’s collab “Dumb Blonde” is probably my least favorite single of 2019 (it’s low-key unlistenable), but I appreciate its rebellious spirit (definitely a bop for angsty teens, and there’s a market for that). Perhaps the two can breathe new life into it when the video drops.
Avril confirmed on Instagram there’s a visual in the works (see below).
Head Above Water failed to make any real dent on the Billboard 200 chart. Curiously, the song is the black sheep of the album, so it feels very much like the label’s last-ditch attempt to turn things around. I would have loved to see a video for “Souvenir” or “Bigger Wow,” but I guess this’ll do.
