Making A Big Comeback
In a report by KIISFM, Lavigne has been working hard on her career this year. Recently, she teamed up with Willow Smith, 21, for a new music collaboration featuring Barker in their song, “G R O W.”
Last month, MTV posted a snippet of their music video on their Instagram page, writing: “I just need to watch the music video premiere of “G R O W” by @willowsmith, @avrillavigne ft. @travisbarker, out right now & all day long on MTV Live + MTVU! 🎸 💖”
The clip showed Lavigne and Smith transforming into giants as they towered over building set-pieces as they sang.
Lavigne will also be touring in 2022 around the UK and Europe. Initially, she postponed the schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Kerrang, Lavigne will begin touring in February and March next year for a total of 19 shows.
“F–ck yeah, I’m going on tour!” Avril announced on Instagram, along with a poster photo containing the dates and venues. “Here are the Europe/UK dates. 🎸🤘🏻🎶🥁”
