On her sixth full-length album and debut for BMG, Head Above Water, Avril Lavigne holds nothing back. Over the course of the record, she details each trial and tribulation from a perspective of triumph and emerges stronger than ever before. You're hearing the songstress as she was always meant to sound. "This is me and my fight," she affirms. "‘Head Above Water' tells my story."
Over the course of nearly two decades, Avril's global sales have eclipsed 40 million albums and 50 million singles with five albums bowing in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200 and two at #1. Among countless accolades, she garnered eight GRAMMY® Award nominations and took home eight Juno Awards. She stands out as "one of the Soundscan-era's top-selling artists releasing albums in the U.S." and "third best-selling Canadian female artist of all-time." Billboard placed her in the Top 10 of its "Best of the 2000s" chart. Lavigne also set the Guinness World Record as "the youngest female solo artist to top the UK chart" and made history with "Girlfriend"—which became the "first music video to reach 100 million views on YouTube".
