With her parents’ permission, Lavigne then quit school and moved to New York City with her brother. There she worked with a professional music producer and signed, at age 16, a two-album contract worth approximately $1.25 million. After she relocated to Los Angeles to fine-tune her songs and her sound, her first album, Let Go, debuted in 2002 and went 6× platinum. It featured the hits “Complicated,” “Sk8er Boi,” “I’m with You,” and “Losing Grip.” Her popularity and fame continued with the albums Under My Skin (2004), The Best Damn Thing (2007), Goodbye Lullaby (2011), and Avril Lavigne (2013). Her medical struggles informed her sixth studio album, Head Above Water (2019).
