Popstar Ava Max’s Top 10 Music Hit Songs

Ava Max, is an American singer-songwriter. After crossing several states to pursue a music profession in her youth, Max signed with Atlantic Records in 2016, where she launched the tune “Sweet however Psycho” on August 17, 2018. It became her development single after topping the charts in 26 nations such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, and New Zealand, while similarly peaking at second in Australia, and number 10 on the United States Billboard Hot 100. Tropika Club presents to you Ava Max’s Top 10 hit tunes by their appeal and number of views on YouTube.

Ava Max was born Amanda Koci, in 1994, to Albanian-immigrant parents in Milwaukee. When she was eight, her household relocated to Virginia. Her mother was an opera vocalist; her papa played the piano; her uncles were in bands. She was a Britney Spears fanatic who wanted to pursue pop music.

As many a stage mom has actually done in the past, Max’s mom moved her 14-year-old child to Los Angeles in 2008. (“She’s like, ‘We’re moving to California … [due to the fact that] there’s nothing to do in Virginia for your career.'”) But Max found the city “frustrating,” and, a year later on, they were back in Virginia, where she would stay for her teenage years. “I’m pleased absolutely nothing took place back then, so I might in fact have a regular youth,” she said.

She ultimately moved back to California a few years later on, in hopes of sparking that profession. She started making music with a buddy of her older sibling (among the few members of the family without musical inclinations; Max said he’s an “business owner”). That friend was the manufacturer Cirkut, who, along with Max Martin and Dr. Luke, was accountable for Katy Perry’s “Roar,” and Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” (with Dr. Luke), among other titanic hits that formed the 2010s pop noise. Cirkut and Ava Max recorded a bunch of tunes together, it was a modern-day cosmic occasion that stimulated her climb: a song that the 2 published to SoundCloud.

“I’m not even joking you,” Max stated, “We got e-mails from record labels wishing to talk [just from that tune]” Over the previous year, Max has actually sung on David Guetta and Jason Derulo tracks, and released some one-off songs– consisting of the overblown, effervescent “Salt” and a re-interpretation of “Barbie Girl” titled “Not Your Barbie Girl”– however none got traction till the Cirkut-produced “Sweet however Psycho” was released.

1. Sweet But Psycho

“Sweet but Psycho” is the debut single by American singer Ava Max, released on August 17, 2018, through Atlantic Records as the first single from her debut studio album Heaven & Hell (2020). The song was written by Max, Madison Love, Tix, Cook Classics, and the producer Cirkut. It is a pop, dance-pop, electropop, and synth-pop song with lyrics about the perception of a woman. The song’s title was inspired by frequent interactions between Max and her parents. The song’s lyrics and subsequent music video became controversial for allegedly stigmatising the perception of mental illnesses; mental health organisations in Ireland attempted to ban the song from radio. “Sweet but Psycho” received mixed to positive reviews from music critics, who praised its upbeat sound and catchy chorus.

“Sweet but Psycho” was met with mixed to positive reviews from music critics. Writing for Billboard, Jon Ali praised “Sweet but Psycho” for providing an “instantly addictive” slice of pop; the publication also singled out the “pristine, instantly repeatable chorus”.

Oh, she’s sweet but a psycho
A little bit psycho
At night she’s screamin’
“I’m-ma-ma-ma out my mind”
Oh, she’s hot but a psycho
So left but she’s right though
At night she’s screamin’
“I’m-ma-ma-ma out my mind”


2. So Am I

“So Am I” is a song by American singer Ava Max. It was released on March 7, 2019 through Atlantic Records as the second single from her debut studio album Heaven & Hell (2020). The song was written by Max, Charlie Puth, Maria Smith, Victor Thell, Gigi Grombacher, Roland Spreckley, and producer Cirkut. It is an electropop song which discusses the importance of self-love, being an outcast and not fitting into society.

In an interview with Billboard writer Michael Silver, Max stated that the song is about “what makes people unique and different from each other. It’s about loving yourself, being different, being an outcast and not fitting in the format that society wants to put us in — just celebrating what really makes you different. Whenever I’m feeling down, I remind myself that my flaws make me perfect, because in reality there is no perfect.”

Michael Silva of Billboard described the song as a “bouncy, pop-heavy anthem” with lyrics about “navigating your adolescent years”. Markos Papadatos of Digital Journal described her vocals as “crisp, soothing and expressive” and praised the song’s production which has “infectious hooks and a catchy beat to it that will inspire listeners to get up and dance along”. He concluded by comparing the song’s “message of hope and optimism” to her 2018 song “Sweet but Psycho”.

Do you ever feel like a misfit?
Everything inside you is dark and twisted
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (so am I, so am I, so am I)


3. Kings & Queens

“Kings & Queens” is a song by American singer Ava Max, released on March 12, 2020 through Atlantic Records. It is the fifth single from her debut studio album Heaven & Hell (2020). The song was written by Max, Brett McLaughlin, Desmond Child, Hillary Bernstein, Jakke Erixon, Madison Love, Mimoza Blinsson, Cirkut, and RedOne. The latter two musicians also produced the track, which implemented an electric guitar alongside lyrics about women’s empowerment.

Kings & Queens follows your run-of-the-mill song structure, which works well. There aren’t many surprises here, but it’s a solid song with a nice melody. It’s tough to beat the gigantic success of “Sweet But Psycho”, and while it may not happen anytime soon, I’m sure that one day Ava Max will have an even bigger hit.

If all of the kings had their queens on the throne
We would pop champagne and raise a toast
To all of the queens who are fighting alone
Baby, you’re not dancin’ on your own

Ava Max’s latest single ‘Who’s Laughing Now’ is a delightful, infectious tune that showcases the artist as one of the most empowering singers in her generation. Max absolutely thrives on infusing eighties-themed disco beats that she amps up with her signature energy and catchy melodies. [Music Talkers]

Don’t ya know that I’m stronger
Don’t ya see me in all black
Don’t ya cry like a baby
Hahahaha, hahaha
Who’s laughing now?

Don’t ya know I won’t call back
Don’t ya cry like a baby
Hahahaha, hahaha
Who’s laughing now?


5. Torn

“Torn” is a song by American singer Ava Max, released through Atlantic Records as the third single from her debut studio album Heaven & Hell (2020). The song was written by Max, Madison Love, James Lavigne, Thomas Eriksen, Sam Martin, and producer Cirkut. It is a dance and pop song with lyrics that describe the internal struggle between wanting to stay and leave in a relationship. “Torn” was released on August 19, 2019, where it received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who compared the song’s production to Swedish pop group ABBA. It charted in the top 10 in Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia, and was certified platinum in Poland. An accompanying music video was directed by Joseph Kahn and released on August 27, 2019.

The melody raises some semblances to ABBA’s “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!” in a harmonious and well-crafted way as well. With that at hand, the bridge is also a representation of pure dance & bubblegum pop. The dissonance and resolution that can be observed in the chorus is absolute top-notch, and if this is something we can expect more from Max herself, then count me a fan. [Pop-Tized]

Oh, I wanna stay, wanna walk out the door
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn
I can’t get enough, can’t take anymore
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn
You dry my tears and make it pour
You show me love and give me war
I can’t get enough, can’t take anymore
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn

6. Salt

“Salt” is a song by American singer Ava Max. It was released as the fourth single from her debut studio album Heaven & Hell (2020) on December 12, 2019, through Atlantic Records on streaming services. “Salt” was initially released on YouTube and SoundCloud in 2018, and was written by Max, Autumn Rowe, Madison Love, Nicole Morier, and the producer Cirkut. The dance-pop song was regarded as a “fan favourite” by several publications, who praised the upbeat production. “Salt” peaked at number one in Poland, and charted in the top 10 in Austria, Finland, Germany, Norway, Russia, Ukraine, and Switzerland. It has received a double platinum and platinum music recording certification, as well as a gold certification in five countries.

Singer Ava Max is on a roll! Following a breakout year in which she delivered some of the catchiest pop singles of the year, namely ‘Sweet but Pyscho’ and ‘So Am I’, she seeks to welcome the new decade with self-love and strength.

‘Salt’, the latest single in question, is bouncing with pumping disco beats from the seventies and eighties but manages to be grounded in Max’s soothing, well-measured vocal inflections. Max has always been unabashed in her depiction of womanhood and has encouraged other girls to be themselves, and she continues this streak of positivity with this heart-thumping number. This too urges young women to embrace themselves in the wake of stressful circumstances and tragedies, dropping references to Wonder Woman and Marilyn Monroe as her icons of femininity and boldness. 

The track opens with robust strokes of the violin, as the retro beats introduce themselves together with Ava Max’s invigorated vocals, ready for action and destruction. The strings play a substantial role in sustaining the funky, disco vibes, and communicating the styles of the song through its slick, hot instrumentation. The song was initially posted on the singer’s Soundcloud in 2018 however she selected to release it as a main tune on December 13th, 2019. With its morals of girl power loud and clear, the pedigree of the tune is likewise showing that inclusion, with 4 of its songwriters being female. It is a thrilling dance number, awash in pools of self-confidence, glamour, and shine. [Music Talkers]

I got my thigh highs on, feel like Wonder Woman
That’s when you want all in, but I’m not your woman
When my lipstick pops, and I feel like Monroe
That’s when you want me most, oh, oh

I’m all out of salt
I’m not gonna cry
Won’t give you what you want
‘Cause I look way too good tonight
I’m all out of salt
Tears are running dry
Won’t give you what you want
‘Cause I look way too good tonight

The beat brings a pop rhythm structure which moves its way through with gripping likability. A variety of fresh noises appear, which proves Ava’s capability to blend things up, demonstrating her flexibility. As the track, progresses, Ava digs deeper into her experiences. Moreover, she keeps in mind how a lover has actually left her in a state of anguish. Also, she supplies a love-hate account of understanding a relationship is not meant to be, but yet missing them like crazy once they are gone.

Look what you’ve done, look what you’ve done to me
I got everything I wanted
But you’re everything, you’re everything I want
Look what you’ve done to me
Didn’t know I was alone
‘Til I was running to you, running to your
Heart like magnets
Oh my God, what’s happening?
Look what you’ve done, look what you’ve done to me
I got everything I wanted
But you’re everything, you’re everything I need

This may just be his launching album however AJ Mitchell has actually already gone through his actions to success.
