RIAA multi-platinum certified global pop sensation Ava Max has released her newest pop anthem, “Million Dollar Baby” – available now HERE. The new track is the latest single off her upcoming album, Diamonds & Dancefloors, releasing Friday, January 27th and available for pre-order and pre-save HERE. The upbeat and sassy track is an interpolation of LeAnn Rimes’ “Can’t Fight The Moonlight” and has already proven a fan favorite via a series of TikTok teaser videos featuring Rimes. “Million Dollar Baby” releases alongside an official music video, directed by Andrew Donoho (Khalid, Janelle Monae, Paul McCartney), premiering today at YouTube HERE.
“When I was creating this record, I was going through a really hard time in my life – heartbreak and just a lot of sadness,” shared Ava. “I titled it ‘Million Dollar Baby’ to remind myself of my self-worth and wrote the lyrics to show that you can overcome and achieve anything when you put your mind to it. The line ‘She broke out of her chains, turned the fire into rain’ shows the journey this song took me through – from feeling weighed down by sadness to breaking free and feeling like myself again.”
Ava first announced Diamonds & Dancefloors with standout lead single and uber confident track, “Maybe You’re The Problem,” which currently boasts over 20M views via YouTube HERE. “Maybe You’re The Problem” followed Ava’s collaboration with iconic DJ Tiësto for their worldwide hit, “The Motto,” which instantly became an international blockbuster, reaching the top 5 on Billboard’s “Dance/Electronic Songs” chart while earning close to 835M worldwide. The official music video was directed by Christian Breslauer (The Weeknd, Lil Nas X, Doja Cat) – currently flaunts over 94M views on YouTube HERE.
