Last week, Avril Lavigne joined Luis Fonsi, Hussain Al Jassmi, Assala, and Tamer Hosny to perform their new charity song, “Right Where I’m Supposed To Be.” The diverse group debuted the song in a live performance at the Special Olympics opening ceremony in Abu Dhabi last Thursday.
Today, that song is available to stream and download, and fans can finally see its music video, too. Featuring the five singers mentioned above, the track and video also include Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote the song. The video was filmed three weeks ago, and in Avril’s case, she hadn’t even recorded her vocals yet!
The video for “Right Where I’m Supposed To Be” depicts each singer recording their vocals in the studio. It also shows many of the athletes who competed in this year’s Special Olympics in Abu Dhabi. The video is uplifting, motivational, and unifying, matching the multi-lingual song’s message perfectly.
Watch the video for “Right Where I’m Supposed To Be” below:
This isn’t Avril’s first song for the Special Olympics. In 2015, she released “Fly,” a song she wrote for the Avril Lavigne Foundation. She performed it at the 2015 opening ceremony and released a music video featuring many of the athletes competing that year.
Last month, more than five years after releasing her eponymous fifth album, Avril Lavigne made her music comeback with Head Above Water. Many of the songs, including the lead single and title track, detail her battle with Lyme Disease. But it’s not all about her health battle; songs like “Tell Me It’s Over” describe relationship woes, whereas “Dumb Blonde” offers an unexpected feminist anthem. It’s a stunning album that harkens back to Avril’s earliest albums while forging new, Motown-esque territory.
