Pop queen Ava Max came out full force to wow us with her stellar sophomore studio album Diamonds & Dancefloors! Mission accomplished, Ava! We’ve been anticipating the album drop since early 2022 with the release of ‘Maybe You’re The Problem,’ and now it’s here! Lucky for us, Ava has been feeding her fandom with snippets of tracks on social media. Nothing could have prepared us for the real thing!
Our top pre-album release is ‘Weapons,’ an empowering self-love bop for the masses! Serving as a message to “haters” set on bringing others down, Ava lets us know just how strong she is. No matter what words they throw at her, she’s going to come back better. Wrapping her inspiring message inside an 80s-infused melody curated the perfect fighter anthem.
Ava announced on Twitter she’d be doing a “12 Days of Diamonds & Dancefloors” promo debuting visualizers of various tracks to get us amped for release day. These included the ultimate move-on motivator ‘Get Outta My Heart,’ title track ‘Diamonds & Dancefloors,’ and ‘Ghost,’ our personal favorite!
However, a standout track for us is definitely ‘Sleepwalker,’ and we’re sure, once you hear it, you’ll agree. Sticking with that retro feel, this track transports you into a Stranger Things daydream. Seriously, we’d kill to hear this song in season five. ‘Sleepwalker’ is all about becoming that one special person’s dream, making them love you so much that you become their obsession. Kinda romantic, ain’t it? One thing’s for sure… this song is our newest obsession!
The latest release before the big day was ‘Cold As Ice,’ which came out on January 24th. Another track that makes us want to pull out the legwarmers and aerobicize. Don’t let the name fool you. This is hot! Ava lets us know that it’s okay to set boundaries and put up our walls sometimes; preserving our peace has never been so sexy.
‘Cold As Ice’
Needless to say, Ava Max has given us one of the most fun pop albums of 2023. Yes, it’s only January, but what can we say? We’re suckers for anything danceable. Now the question is, what are you waiting for? Dance your way over to Spotify right now and check out Diamonds & Dancefloors for yourself.
