    So album is out Friday. Quite looking forward to a strong pure-pop effort based on the 6/7(!) singles and grat tracks.

    Up to a new peak of #66 on the Billboard Hot 100 too. Maybe she really is going for an Xmas #1 :o

    This girl really has managed to take the concept of basic to the next level.

    THIS ALBUM IS OUT AND IT IS FAB :disco:

    Naked and Born to the Night are great. Naked video



    I think it will be big. (not sure why it's in 4:3...)

    It’s a good thing Jark and I have some common ground with genuine classics such as Lady Wood and Born This Way or we’d kill each other.

    I think the album is great. Yeah it's just throwaway pop, but I could def listen to it a few times through!

    It’s such a good album (even if we have heard at least half of it already). I like that there is still place for uncomplicated pop music like this (and that it still, largely, sells).

    The hook on OMG What’s Happening is quite special.

    Not Steps and Ava Max resurrecting @Kratz from the depths of the well. PURE POP really IS all-powerful!

    I'll go in for a loon rate

    07 HEAVEN
    07 Kings & Queens
    08 Naked
    07 Tattoo
    08 OMG What's Happening
    08 Call Me Tonight
    09 Born to the Night
    10 Torn
    07 Take You to Hell
    10 Who's Laughing Now
    05 Belladonna
    08 Rumours
    06 So Am I
    10 Salt
    10 Sweet But Psycho

    :disco:

    I find her a likeable popstar, a bit of a throwback, her visuals are improving in real-time and her voice is really the killer element here and sells every song.

    The lyrics across the board are hot trash and need work. Having her bf produce the whole album has resulted in a consistent sound that suits her to a tee. GOOD WORK AMANDA.

    please tell me she credits the Major Tom sample in Born into the night :D

    I found the album incredibly derivative, albeit GOOD but had me thinking she was serving Kesha, Katy, Marina and obviously Gaga at the same time!

    he had nothing to do with it, he just gets credited due to Cirkut's publishing deal as he was once Luke's protege

    Why on earth would anybody expect an Ava Max album NOT to be derivative? :D

    I’m with cwej, it’s very much BASIC POP [/Kelly Clarkson] but very enjoyable for that.

    I've been listening to Naked an UNHEALTHY amount of times today, what a B O P

    It's a song Kim Petras would kill for,
    oh Bonnie McKee, we've missed you and if Katy doesn't want you back I'm all for Ava becoming your next muse.

    Isn't that separating the whole top 5? I read 24 sales as well on UKmix.

    Looks like it's going to be one of the lowest weekly totals ever for a #1, whoever gets it.

    still #1 today with her lead extended to 400 copies. looking at some truly terrible sales for a number one album though, probably around 7.5k :D

    With sales that low we're probably looking at an impressive second week fall as well.
