Why Ava Max Refuses to Make Party Music

Ava Max’s breakout hit "Sweet But Psycho" is certainly getting lots of play at parties around the world these days, though when you dissect its lyrics it’s definitely not a traditional party anthem.

And don’t expect her to ever release one, because writing them doesn’t really interest her.

"Drinking and partying never appealed to me in lyrics – they don’t have a lot of meaning behind them," she tells the Sydney Confidential. "It is sometimes fun when you party and listen to those fun songs but they don’t have a lot of meaning behind them. I wanted to add a meaning to a fun song, which is hard to do."

Ava is working night and day on just that right now as she finishes her debut album, which is expected later this year.
