Diamonds & Dancefloors auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Diamonds & Dancefloors is the second studio album by American singer Ava Max. It was released on January 27, 2023, through Atlantic Records. Recorded throughout 2021, the album is a dance-pop record much like Max's debut studio album Heaven & Hell. The album was promoted by the release of five singles: Maybe You're The Problem, Million Dollar Baby, Weapons, Dancing's Done, and One of Us. On the US Billboard 200, it debuted in the top 40 and also entered the top 40 in over 20 other countries including the UK.


On February 12, 2022, Max cut off her signature "Max Cut" and dyed her hair red, sparking rumors about the start of a new era.[2] On March 2, 2022, she confirmed that a song titled "Maybe You're the Problem" would be the lead single. She also stated that her upcoming album would be her most personal album to date.[3] In an interview with Billboard, she revealed that she had been working on the album for the whole of 2021, which she refers to as "the hardest year" of her life.[4] She also stated that she was "terrified" as her recently recorded music became more vulnerable.[5]

On June 1, 2022, she revealed the album name and the main original cover art, first on social media, then on The Today Show.[6] Max was seen on the original cover art covered in diamonds on the cover with a diamond in her mouth.[7] The album is set to include 14 tracks in total.[8] The album was set for release on October 14, 2022, but was postponed to January 27, 2023 with the official main cover art which was unveiled on December 19, 2022.[9]

Cover artworks

The album has three official album artworks, all shot by American photographer Marilyn Hue.[9] The original cover art for Diamonds and Dancefloors was unveiled by Max on June 1, 2022, on her social media platforms. It features a close up of Max covered in diamonds with a diamond in her mouth.[10] The cover was later only used on physical versions of the album; the new one was used on digital and streaming editions.

The new cover art for the album was unveiled on December 19, 2022, once again on Max's social media platforms. It was taken after the filming of the visualizer for "Dancing's Done", the album's fourth single, featuring Max laying on blue diamonds with sliver ones seen near her head. In a interview with ET Canada, Max explained why she changed the album's cover:

It’s from the Diamonds and Dancefloors visualizer for "Dancing's Done". And so when I finished with that visualizer, I was like "Ok, I've been sitting on the other album cover for way too long, it’s time to swap it, and we’re swapping it for this." And it really looked like the cover to me.

— Ava Max, from "Ava Max Explains Why She Changed 'Diamonds & Dancefloors' Album Cover", ET Canada[11]

The album received a third cover for the CD version of the album as an alternative album cover version; the artwork switches the back cover as the front and the original front as the back cover.[12] The cover features Max standing on a giant tilting diamond while holding a suspended microphone on one hand and pouring champagne from a glass with her other hand.[13]

Music and lyrics

Diamonds & Dancefloors is a pop[14] and dance-pop[15][16] record with a "synth-pop backbone"[17] and "electropop melodies with some 90s synths and a touch of disco".[18] According to Max, the sound and lyrics of the album "will make you cry and dance at the same time". She described the album's main theme as "basically heartbreak on the dancefloor".[19] Unlike her previous album, Heaven & Hell, Max mentioned that Diamonds & Dancefloors is more about her personal life, especially her past relationships.[20] The album contains lyrics about the deterioration and eventual breakdown of a relationship,[21] as well as empowering and escapist lyrics.[22]


Diamonds & Dancefloors opens with "Million Dollar Baby", a pop[23][24][25] and Eurodance song,[26] inspired by music from the 2000s.[25] The song interpolates "Can't Fight the Moonlight" (2000) by LeAnn Rimes[26][27] and contains lyrics based on the theme of empowerment, which begins with grief and ends in emancipation.[28] The second track, "Sleepwalker", is a synth-pop song[29] with "slick" production and a "nocturnal feeling",[30] where Max sings about becoming the obsession of someone who has fallen in love with her.[31] The third track, "Maybe You're the Problem", is a dance-pop[32] and synth-pop song,[33][34] with influences from Eurodance,[35] Europop[36] and music in the 1980s.[32][35] The lyrics describe Max's initiation to depart from a relationship with a selfish partner. [37] The fourth track, "Ghost", is an early 1990s house song[29] with lyrics about not being able to forget an ex-lover.[38] The fifth track, "Hold Up (Wait a Minute)", is a dance-pop song[39] with elements of disco,[38] where Max sings about her growing suspicion of her lover cheating on her with someone else.[30] The sixth track, "Weapons", is a disco-pop[40] and Europop[41] song that contains lyrics about recognizing one's own fallibility and vulnerability and therefore becoming strong and "invincible".[40][42] It is followed by the album's title track, an early 1990s house song[29] that has been described as a "club anthem".[43]

The eighth track, "In the Dark", contains "dark melodies",[44] UK garage beats[45] and lyrics about being loved only at night.[46] It is followed by "Turn Off the Lights", a disco-influenced song[29] where Max "promises euphoria once the lights go out".[30] The tenth track, "One of Us", is a pop song[21] inspired by 1980s disco and dance music,[47] where Max sings about not wanting to hurt her lover.[46] The eleventh track, "Get Outta My Heart", is an electronic dance song[29] where Max sings about ditching an ex-lover.[46] It samples the film score of the 1968 film Twisted Nerve.[29] It is followed by "Cold as Ice", a disco-pop[48] and dance-pop song[39] with male backing vocals.[30] The penultimate track, "Last Night on Earth", is an electro song [29] with lyrics inspired by the disaster films Geostorm (2017) and San Andreas (2015).[39] The album closes with "Dancing's Done", a Europop song[49] where Max sings about what could happen at the end of the night between her and someone else.[50]

Release and promotion

Diamonds & Dancefloors was released on January 27, 2023 through Atlantic Records. The standard edition of the album was released for digital download and streaming and physically on CD, cassette and vinyl.[51] The CD was released with two different covers and the vinyl record in four different colors. The Japanese edition of the album was released on CD with two bonus tracks: a remix of "Maybe You're the Problem" and a remix of "Million Dollar Baby".[52] Max announced that there would be a deluxe edition of the album[53] and that she will soon embark on her first headlining tour.[54]

From December 21 to 30, 2022, Max held an activity called "12 Days of Diamonds & Dancefloors", where she released a new visualizer every day for twelve days. On the first day, she posted a visualizer for "Dancing's Done" on her YouTube channel. The next day, a snippet of the visualizer for "Weapons" was posted via TikTok. Snippets for the next seven days included the title track,[55] "Turn Off the Lights",[56] "Cold as Ice",[57] "In the Dark",[58] "Last Night on Earth",[59] "Hold Up (Wait a Minute)"[60] and "Get Outta My Heart".[61][62] "Ghost" was released as the last visualizer for the event.[63] Max then mentioned that she would save three more surprises for the month of January.[64] The full visualizer for "One of Us" was released on January 27, 2023.


On March 2, 2022, Max announced that "Maybe You're The Problem" would be the lead single of the album. She began teasing the song through snippets and TikTok videos. It was finally released on April 28, 2022, and subsequently debuted and peaked at number 83 on the UK Singles Chart. Max performed the song for the first time on June 1, 2022, on The Today Show,[65] where she also announced the album. She performed the song again at the 2022 LOS40 Music Awards on November 4 of the same year.[66]

In August 2022, Max began teasing "Million Dollar Baby". The song was released on September 1, 2022, as the second single from the album. On October 13, 2022, Max revealed the track listing of the album along with and the back cover, on social media.[67] Max performed the song at the 2022 MTV Europe Music Awards on November 13,[68] and at the 2022 NRJ Music Awards on November 18.[69] The song appears in the rhythm game Just Dance 2023 Edition, with the choreography performed by Max herself as a coach.[70]

Through TikTok, Max teased the release of the album's third single, "Weapons", which was released on November 10, 2022.[71] On December 20, 2022, Max released "Dancing's Done" as the album's fourth single, which was sent to radio in Italy on January 6, 2023.[9][72][73] On January 13, 2023, Max released "One of Us" as the album's fifth single,[74] which was then followed by the album's first promotional single, "Cold as Ice" on January 24, 2023.

The Line of Best Fit7/10[15]

Diamonds & Dancefloors received a score of 80 out of 100 based on 4 reviews on review aggregator Metacritic, indicating "generally favorable" reception.[76]

Neil Z. Yeung of AllMusic wrote that the album is "deftly executed and ideal for repeat listens" and "it's pure, irresistible thrills from start to finish". Yeung found Max's vocal power "passionate".[29] Sam Franzini of The Line of Best Fit found that the album is "shimmering and twinkling with production that is consistently sharp", although "we don’t learn much about Max on these songs", because the songs have "no narrative sense".[15]

Ava Max (2019)

Ava Max (* 16. Februar 1994 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin als Amanda Koçi, bürgerlich: Amanda Ava Koci[1]) ist eine US-amerikanische Popsängerin mit albanischen Wurzeln. Der internationale Durchbruch gelang ihr 2018 mit Sweet but Psycho.


Kindheit und Jugend

Ava Max' Eltern stammen aus Saranda und Tirana in Albanien.[2] Sie verließen Albanien in den 1990er Jahren. Nach ihrer Geburt zog die Familie nach Virginia. Ihre Kindheit wurde durch die Vorliebe ihrer Mutter zur Oper musikalisch geprägt.[3] Sie hat einen Bruder.

Bereits in der Schule trat sie auf der Bühne als Sängerin auf und zählt Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Fergie, Britney Spears und Christina Aguilera zu ihren musikalischen Einflüssen.[4] Im Alter von 14 Jahren bat sie den US-amerikanischen Musiker Pharrell Williams um Hilfe, um in das Musikgeschäft einzusteigen. Hierfür zog sie später nach Los Angeles.

Bis 2017: Musikalische Anfänge

Mitte der 2000er Jahre wurde sie im sozialen Netzwerk Myspace aktiv. Unter dem Namen Amanda Kay veröffentlichte sie dort neben einigen Coverversionen auch eigene Lieder, die von Kevin Rudolf produziert wurden. Am 12. September 2008 erschien die aus sechs Songs bestehende EP Amanda Kay. Die EP wurde unter anderem auch auf iTunes zur Verfügung gestellt.[5] 2013 erschienen zwei Kollaborationen im Bereich Electro-House mit dem österreichischen Produzenten und Tim-Tim-Mitglied Fritz Jerey. Dabei kam sie auch in Kontakt mit dem Produzenten-Team um Dr. Luke. Die Sängerin trat hier erstmals unter dem Künstlernamen AVA in Erscheinung. Während die erste Produktion Satellite lediglich auf SoundCloud veröffentlicht wurde,[6] erschien der zweite Song Take Away the Pain im Mai 2013 über Koci Media und Hizz Media Group als Single.[7]

Zwischen 2014 und 2015 traf sie auf den kanadischen Musikproduzenten und späteren Lebenspartner Henry Russell Walter alias Cirkut,[8] der mit ihr die Lieder Spinning Around und Come Home produziert. Die Popsongs wurden unter dem Namen Ava Koci via SoundCloud veröffentlicht. Im Juli 2015 veröffentlichte das kanadische DJ- & Produzenten-Duo Project 46 ihr offizielles Studioalbum Beautiful mit u. a. einer neu abgemischten Version des Liedes Take Away the Pain, bei dem der Produzent DallasK mitwirkte.[9]

2016 unterzeichnete sie einen Plattenvertrag bei Atlantic Records. Im Januar 2016 veröffentlichte sie als AVA den Song Jet Set. Im Juli 2016 veröffentlichte sie ebenfalls als AVA das Lied Anyone But You, ebenfalls via SoundCloud.

Im August 2017 veröffentlichte der US-amerikanische DJ und Produzent Le Youth das Stück Clap Your Hands, auf dem sie als Gastmusikerin zu hören ist. Der Song bildet ihre zweite Single-Veröffentlichung zugleich das erste Release unter ihrem Künstlernamen Ava Max. Der Song erzielte große Aufmerksamkeit auf Spotify (über 13 Mio. Aufrufe) und YouTube (über 3 Mio. Aufrufe). Im Dezember 2017 erschien das Lied Not Your Barbie Girl als ein weiteres SoundCloud-Upload, das ein Sample von Aquas Barbie Girl aus dem Jahr 1997 beinhaltet und das vor allem durch die häufige Verwendung in TikTok-Videos bekannt wurde.

2018 bis 2021: Debütalbum Heaven & Hell

Im April 2018 erschien die Promosingle My Way. Der Track erreichte Platz 38 der rumänischen Airplay-Charts. Im Mai 2018 folgte der nur auf YouTube und SoundCloud veröffentlichte Song Slippin, der in Zusammenarbeit mit Gashi aufgenommen wurde. Im Juni 2018 erschien ihr zweiter Gastbeitrag als Feature auf der Single Into Your Arms des US-amerikanischen Rappers Witt Lowry. Im Juli erschien auf SoundCloud das Lied Salt. Es folgte der bereits im Vorjahr auf SoundCloud freigegebene Song Not Your Barbie Girl als Promosingle. Insbesondere als Werbesong für die sich gerade etablierende Videoplattform TikTok erreichte das Lied Aufmerksamkeit.

Im August 2018 veröffentlichte sie ihre Debütsingle Sweet but Psycho. Der Song gelangte Mitte des Monats in die schwedischen Musikcharts. Bis Oktober 2018 kletterte das Lied dort bis auf Platz eins. In Deutschland erreichte es innerhalb von vier Wochen die Spitzenposition. Kurze Zeit später stieg es auch in der Schweiz, in Österreich und im Vereinigten Königreich auf Platz eins der Singlecharts.[10] Insgesamt kletterte der Song in 22 Ländern an die Spitze der Charts.

Auf dem im September 2018 von David Guetta veröffentlichten Studioalbum 7 sang sie Let It Be Me. Der Track enthält ein Sample von Tom’s Diner von Suzanne Vega aus dem Jahr 1987. Im Oktober 2018 veröffentlichte Max in Zusammenarbeit mit Vice und Jason Derulo den Song Make Up. Nachdem sich Sweet but Psycho Anfang Januar 2019 auch in den USA zu einem kommerziellen Erfolg entwickelt hatte und unter anderem an der Spitze der Billboard-Club-Songs stand, erschien im März 2019 der Nachfolgetitel So Am I. Im Juli 2019 veröffentlichte sie die Promosingles Blood, Sweat & Tears & Freaking Me Out

Im August 2019 erschien der Song Torn, im November folgte mit dem spanischen Musiker Pablo Alborán das Lied Tabú, im Dezember 2019 folgte die Singleveröffentlichung ihers Songs Salt, den sie zuvor im Jahr 2018 auf SoundCloud veröffentlicht hat, und Ende des Monats erschien mit dem britisch-norwegischen Musikproduzenten Alan Walker das Lied Alone, Pt.II sowie die Promosingle On Somebody.

Im März 2020 erschien die Single Kings & Queens, im Juli folgte Who's Laughing Now. Im September erschien OMG What's Happening und ihr Debütalbum Heaven & Hell.[11] Die digitale Fassung beinhaltet zusätzlich die Single My Head & My Heart.[12] Im Oktober 2020 erschien die Single Christmas Without You, bei der unter anderem Jesse Aicher, Sam Martin, Gian Stone und Henry Walter mitwirkten.[13]

Im Juni 2021 folgte die Single EveryTime I Cry[14] und im September Sad Boy von R3hab & Jonas Blue, bei dem sie und Kylie Cantrall als Gastmusikerinnen zu hören sind. Im November 2021 erschien der mit Tiësto aufgenommene Song The Motto.

Seit 2022: Diamonds & Dancefloors

Im April 2022 koppelte sie Maybe You’re the Problem als erste Single aus ihrem kommenden zweiten Studioalbum aus. Im September folgte Million Dollar Baby[15] und im November Weapons. Im Dezember erschien die Single Dancing's Done und im Januar 2023 One Of Us und Cold As Ice sowie das Album Diamonds & Dancefloors.[16]
