Ava Max is BACK, with a New Single, “Weapons”
RIAA multi-platinum certified global pop sensation Ava Max has shared her disco-powered new single, “Weapons,” available now via Atlantic Records at all DSPs and streaming services.
Ava Max is ready to take her already extraordinary rise to the pinnacle of pop success to even greater heights with her first new single of 2022, “Maybe You’re The Problem” and sophomore album Diamonds and Dancefloors. With over 12.4B worldwide streams, an array of smash collaborations, and multiple RIAA gold and platinum certifications in the US alone, the first-generation Albanian American artist has fast proven a true pop superstar, hailed for her seismic voice, idiosyncratic high fashion mindset, and undeniable knack for cinematic, theatrical popcraft. 2018 saw Max make her explosive arrival with the blockbuster success of the RIAA 4x-platinum certified hit, “Sweet but Psycho.” Currently boasting more than 4B global streams, the track took the world by storm, spending three weeks in the top 10 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” while reaching #1 in more than 20 countries around the world and earning diamond certification in many countries worldwide.
This summer saw the premiere of “Million Dollar Baby,” fueled by an interpolation of LeAnn Rimes’ classic “Can’t Fight The Moonlight,” the buoyantly sassy track has fast proven a fan favorite via a series of TikTok teaser videos featuring Rimes. And now, we see another strong symbol of her return with an anthemic sensation that’s “Weapons.”
To say “Weapons” is empowering would be an understatement. Co-written by Max herself– alongside a GRAMMY® Award-winning cadre of all-star collaborators including Henry “Cirkut” Walter (Katy Perry, The Weeknd, Elton John), Madison Love (Madison Beer, Camila Cabello), Michel “Lindgren” Schulz (John Legend, Dua Lipa), Melanie Fontana (BTS, John Legend), and Ryan Tedder (Beyonce, Leona Lewis, Adele)– this single rings clear with Max’s vocals, channeling an inner fighter and inspiring others to find their warrior spirits through loving words. “Weapons” marks the latest single from Max’s hugely anticipated new album, Diamonds & Dancefloors, arriving everywhere on Friday, January 27th. The album – which follows Ava’s RIAA gold certified 2020 debut, Heaven & Hell – includes such recently released dance pop anthems as the passionately self-assured “Maybe You’re The Problem,” joined by an official music video now with close to 25M views – Watch HERE.
