In music news that literally nobody saw coming a million miles away, Avril Lavigne and Nicki Minaj are releasing a song together tomorrow, called ‘Dumb Blonde‘.

I know. I KNOW.

It’s probably one of the most unlikely (??) duos coming together to make music, in a collaboration that we could never have even dreamed of. It’s two decades of life are smashing together in something that could either be fantastic or a total wreck and either way, it’s going to be spectacular.

Avril tweeted the news this morning, and it was so powerful that I immediately had to take a lap around the office to process just exactly what the fuck happened.

Nicki then followed it up with her own memories of listening to Avril Lavigne’s earlier, deeply iconic tracks. Who bloody knew that she was into belting out ‘I’m With You‘ in the car after a breakup as well? Celebrities! They’re just like us!!

Consider me undeniably shook. Scalped. Wig snatched to the far corners of the earth.

I’m not the only one feeling all kinds of things about this, either. Fans of both Avril and Nicki have shared their thoughts on the upcoming collab, ranging from unadulterated excitement to sheer disbelief.

I can’t even begin to imagine what this is even going to sound like, but it could very easily be the biggest/most iconic collab of the year we’ve got on our hands here. Will it be like Avril’s last collab with a rapper, that fateful earworm with Lil’ Mama by the name of ‘Girlfriend‘?

The only thing that’s obvious is that both Avril Lavigne and Nicki Minaj are super excited to have worked together, which is too wholesome in and of itself.

Dumb Blonde‘ will be the third single off Avril Lavigne’s upcoming sixth album, Head Above Water, which is due for release on February 15.

Now while we wait for the collab to drop, let us revisit the best video of Avril Lavigne of all time.
