I like this but I'm still wondering why it is THAT big.

Maybe it's just good timing and after so much domination from mumble rappers, people are longing for something different. Ava Max comes along with something outta 2009 and well. it was certainly different by 2018 standards.

If we're heading towards retro pop circa 2009-2010 i'm so here for it. :D

Had Ava Max been Scandinavian or from UK, it would have never been that big.
Just some Spotify-era (post 2014) pro-U.S. showbiz bias, as always.

This seems to be finally happening in the US and Canada...heard it a few times today. And it's pretty darn catchy.

Yeah it's basic as hell but I'm hooked. And I think people are just thirsty for pop.

How did this go #1? :o :x :roll:

So average, nothing special, not the song not the vocals not the video… I just can't get into it.

There were far worse songs that hit #1 in the previous year. Any Drake song, Funky Friday, that LadBaby song etc. All of these lack the things you have mentioned. :lol:

This deserves it's success. It's perfect Pop and I'm hoping for a revival in 2019.

She needs to release something different if she doesn't want to be labeled as a Gaga copycat.
Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

The appearance needs to change too. It‘s basically a feisty copy/paste issue from The Fame era.

It’s a mystery to me how people can like this.

It’s like choosing a Picasso print over an original Picasso.

this is pure pop and I kinda needed it in my life. But yes, this is basically a Lady Gaga copy-paste formula.
I kinda like her voice though

Found this mash up, Thought the Pink part didn't add much musically until the last bridge/prechorus (plus the Taylor is more of an undercurrent) then they all come together in the last bit. The theme works together in the visuals of the video's too.

'Sweet But Psycho Romance" (Ava, Gaga, Pink and Taylor)
