The hype song gives us marching band vibes, and Minaj’s feature feels like a perfect fit even though it may come as a surprise to fans.

The artist teased the cover art of the single which features a close-up of her mouth with a pink lollipop on Monday. She posted the album in a series of Instagram photos, each with lyrics from the song as captions. You can see the whole cover below. 

Both Minaj and Lavigne gushed about their love for each other on Twitter.

“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” “thing I’ll never say” “nobody’s fool” “sk8er boi,” Minaj’s tweet reads. “This woman is so unbelievably talented.”

Lavigne tweeted, “[email protected] is my favorite!!! I’ve been listening to her for so long. As soon as I recorded #DumbBlonde, I knew she’d be the perfect artist to collaborate with on it. When she said yes it was like a dream come true!!!”

“Dumb Blonde” followed the release of tracks “Head Above Water” and “Tell Me It’s Over,” which feature on her upcoming sixth album. It will be her first record since the “Sk8r Boi” singer was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2014.
