Global pop sensation Ava Max has premiered the first official remix of her latest single “Torn” – the disco-tinged bop has received an even more club-ready remix treatment from non-other than chart-topping Norwegian duo KREAM.
Since release, “Torn” has earned critical praise from COMPLEX, Billboard, MTV News, Idolator and more. The official superhero-themed video for “Torn” was created in collaboration with Fiat and directed by the acclaimed Joseph Kahn (Britney Spears’ “Toxic,” Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood”). Shot earlier this summer across four days on location in Milan, IT, the instantly iconic video promotes female empowerment and features stunning landmarks throughout the city including the Duomo di Milano.

The emerging pop starlet recently attended her first-ever MTV Video Music Awards where she was nominated “Best New Artist” alongside Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, Rosalía and H.E.R.
The release of “Torn” follows Ava’s summer streak of bops including “Freaking Me Out,” “Blood, Sweat & Tears” and her feature on AJ Mitchell’s new single “Slow Dance.” Upon release, “Freaking Me Out” and “Blood, Sweat & Tears” were praised by publications including TIME Magazine, Rolling Stone, Billboard, MTV News and more.
Ava has cemented her pop status with the success of her RIAA 2x-platinum certified hit “Sweet but Psycho” which spent three weeks in the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 and peaked at #3 at USA Pop Radio. With over 650 million global streams and counting, “Sweet but Psycho,” which earned Max her first-ever Teen Choice Awards nomination for “Choice Pop Song” – where she was also nominated for “Choice Summer Female Artist” – is joined by an official video which has garnered over 423 million views.
Produced by GRAMMY Award-nominated super-producer Cirkut (Maroon 5, Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd) and co-written with Madison Love (Camila Cabello), “Psycho” hit #1 on both Spotify’s “United States Viral 50” and Billboard’s “Dance Club Songs.” The stateside success of “Sweet But Psycho,” including top 5 airplay at Hot AC radio outlets nationwide, follows the track’s remarkable popularity abroad, including four consecutive weeks atop the UK Singles Chart and #1 rankings on charts in nearly 20 countries.
Dubbed the “Princess of Pop” by V Magazine and “Artist You Need to Know” by Rolling Stone, Ava has been feted with a wide range of media attention, including features in Vanity Fair, Billboard, FORBES, PAPER, and more. Earlier this year, the rising pop artist made her national TV debut with performances of “Sweet but Psycho” on The Late Late Show with James Corden, The TODAY Show, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
