Head Above Water became Avril’s first studio album release since 2013. The album reached the top 10 in most territories, peaking at No. 2 in Austria, No. 3 in Germany, No. 5 in Canada, No. 6 in Italy, No. 7 in Japan, No. 9 in Australia, and No. 10 in the U.K. In the U.S., it became her first record to miss the top 10, reaching No. 13.

Lavigne’s career skyrocketed in 2002 when she released her debut album, Let Go, which catapulted her worldwide and sold over 16 million copies. The album contained the hit singles “Complicated,” “Sk8er Boi,” and “I’m With You.” Her followup album, Under My Skin, matched this success — selling over 10 million records with a little help from singles “Don’t Tell Me” and “My Happy Ending.”

In 2007, she released The Best Damn Thing, her third consecutive No. 1 album in Canada and the U.K. Its lead single, “Girlfriend,” became a signature song for the star and currently has over 102 million streams on Spotify.

Avril has embarked on five headlining tours in the past to support each of her albums.

Throughout her career, Lavigne has been nominated for three American Music Awards, eight Grammy Awards, and won four MTV Asia Awards.
