Avril Lavigne fights against dance album

Avril Lavigne fought against making a dance album.

The singer told Billboard that she struggled against record label pressure to make a dance album.

'The biggest challenge and only challenge of this album was my record company.

'I found myself in a situation on my fourth record with a bunch of people at the label who I didn't know, and they're coming in on my project and saying, 'here's what we think you need to do for your record,' and giving me their vision.

'And radio's so rhythmic dance-driven right now, and that's not where I was going with this record. So I had to fight and say no, but...I ultimately made the record I wanted to.'
