    I love the song, I love the video (she looks amazing with dark hair) but... they don't fit together?!

    Joseph Khan has always been hit or miss for me. Usually, he's brilliant but from time to time, it's just getting ridiculous. I don't get this video and it looks horrendous and cheap to me. Poor Ava. I don't think it will turn into boosting sales and streams, tbh.

    hmm the video really doesn't fit the song that much. the idea was probably better than the execution.

    the song is still ace

    Joseph Khan is still not over with Toxic, it's the second time he tries to re-create that video and it was a mess... song it's not bad but it's not great tho, the video is a senseless thing.

    Love it, although it reminds me of Madonna's Hung Up (or ABBA's Gimme Gimme Gimme).

    There are definitely openings for DJs and remixers to mash up Hung Up with Torn. They have similar interpolations pre and post chorus which adds to the song’s appeal.

    Overall cool song. Glad to see Ava Max getting her chance to shine and with the video with already a million views after two days that’s a great sign.

    I tried watching the video and stopped half way through. It is Toxic-esque but I hate her hair cut. I HATE IT. The short and straight vs long and messy is......a mess. It's nice little song though.

    Overall I like Ava's output, but something about her image and the way she potrays herself has me a bit confused, something doesn't clicks completely with me. Everything seems to be thought out, but on the other side it doesn't seems like she is completely herself yet, if you get what I mean. I know she only saw big commercial succes recently, but idk, I can't put my finger on it.

    I still wish the video for this would have been better, the concept itself isn't too bad (after watching it for a 2nd and 3rd time), but like some others have mentioned, it doesn't really fits the song.

    Video is fun, glossy, Kinda reminds me of the look of Blank Space meets Toxic.

    The Sample is kinda slightly less prominent than in Hung Up IMO.

    Is it official she used an ABBA sample?

    Better be, otherwise she's trying to pull Ed Sheeran.

    It’s #35 on the German AirPlay trends. So Am I went #1. She also has a massive TV campaign on VOX. Germany loves her.

    New remix by KREAM, pretty good and better than all the So Am I remixes

    The video is a cringefest, but I like the song a little more now. At least it's not a carbon copy of Sweet But Psycho the way that So Am I was.
