Amanda Ava Koci is in 2017 voor het eerst te horen op Clap Your Hands, een single van dj Le Youth. Solo brengt ze via Atlantic in het voorjaar van 2018 haar eerste single My Way uit. Na Slippin’ weet ze met Sweet But Psycho internationaal succes te scoren. Die track weet in zowel Noorwegen als ook in Zweden de eerste plaats van de hitlijst te bereiken. Dat lukt haar halverwege januari 2019 ook in de Nederlandse Top 40. So Am I, haar tweede hit, bereikt de tiende plaats. Later verschijnen Torn en Salt als tracks voordat ze met Alan Walker het nummer Alone Part II aflevert. Salt wordt later alsnog een hit als in andere Europese landen juist Kings & Queens succesvol blijkt.


Heaven & Hell is het debuutalbum van Ava Max dat in september 2020 verschijnt. Van dat album wordt Who's Laughing Now de volgende single.


Songtekst

If all of the kings
Had their queens on the throne
We would pop champagne
And raise a toast
To all of the queens
Who are fighting alone
Baby, you're not dancing
On your own

Can't live without me
You wanna, but you can't, nah nah nah
Think it's funny
But honey, can't run this show on your own
I can feel my body shake
There's only so much I can take
I'll show you how a real queen behaves, oh

No damsel in distress
Don't need to save me
Once I start breathing fire
You can't tame me
And you might think I'm weak
Without a sword
But if I had one
It'd be bigger than yours

If all of the kings
Had their queens on the throne
We would pop champagne
And raise a toast
To all of the queens
Who are fighting alone
Baby, you're not dancing
On your own

Disobey me
Then baby, it's off with your head
Gonna change it
And make it a world you won't forget, oh

No damsel in distress
Don't need to save me
Once I start breathing fire
You can't tame me
And you might think I'm weak
Without a sword
But I'm stronger
Than I ever was before

If all of the kings
Had their queens on the throne
We would pop champagne
And raise a toast
To all of the queens
Who are fighting alone
Baby, you're not dancing
On your own

In chess, the king can move one space at a time
But queens are free to go wherever they like
You get too close, you'll get a royalty high
So breathe it in to feel alive

If all of the kings
Had their queens on the throne
We would pop champagne
And raise a toast
To all of the queens
Who are fighting alone
Baby, you're not dancing
On your own

Oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
