阿曼达·艾娃·科齐(英语:Amanda Ava Koci,1994年2月16日-),艺名艾娃·马克斯(Ava Max),是一名阿尔巴尼亚裔美国歌手和词曲作家。她的单曲Sweet but Psycho在多个国家的流行乐排行榜上名列前茅。   Early life   Amanda Ava Koci was born Amanda Koci, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on February 16, 1994. She was born to Albanian parents from Qeparo and Sarandë, and has an older brother. In 1991, her parents fled Albania after the fall of communism in the country, and lived in a church in Paris for a year. While in Paris, they encountered a woman from Wisconsin and were given passports by her before immigrating to the United States to reside in Wisconsin, where Max was born. During her childhood, Max often saw her parents struggle to earn an income, as they each worked three jobs without speaking English. Her mother Andrea was a trained opera singer who belted arias in the house, while her father Paul played the piano.   Max moved with her family to Virginia when she was 8 years old, where she competed in numerous Radio Disney singing competitions in malls across the country before entering high school. At the age of 13, she came up with the middle name Ava, which she adopted as her first name, claiming that Amanda did not fit her. When she was 14 years old, Max moved with her mother to Los Angeles in pursuit of a music career, but was constantly rejected for being underage. She went to South Carolina a year later, where she began writing songs about relationships she had observed, including those of her brother. Max stated that she was grateful for the move, as it allowed for a normal childhood. During that time, Max attended Lexington High School for a year, where she recalled being constantly bullied. Max eventually returned to Los Angeles when she was 17 years old with her brother.   Career   2013–2017: Career beginnings   Under the stage name Ava, Max's debut song "Take Away the Pain" was published in 2013, which was remixed by the Canadian DJ and producer duo Project 46 in July 2015. After years of having demos rejected and not returned by record producers and songwriters, in addition to sexual harrassment incidents, she met Canadian record producer Cirkut at a dinner party in 2014, who was also an acquaintance of her brother. Max sang "Happy Birthday" to him, which led to the two working together, writing hundreds of songs and releasing "Anyone but You" on SoundCloud in July 2016. The song gained traction and attracted the attention of various record labels that contacted her through email, ultimately leading her to sign a record deal with Atlantic Records in 2016. Max acknowledged that working with him changed her life, as she considered leaving the music industry after being creatively stifled.   After signing the deal, she began searching for a last name to use as her stage name, eventually deciding on Max. She chose the name, as it combined elements of being both masculine and feminine. Around 2016–2017, Max adopted her signature hairstyle titled the 'Max Cut', which can be seen in her logo as a substitute for the 'A' in Max. On August 4, 2017, she was featured on the Le Youth song "Clap Your Hands", where she sang two different melodies.   2018–present: Breakthrough and Heaven & Hell   On April 20, 2018, "My Way" was released, which peaked at number 38 on the Romanian Airplay 100 chart. On May 11, 2018, "Slippin", a collaboration with Gashi, was released. On June 8, 2018, she was featured on the song "Into Your Arms" by American rapper Witt Lowry. A month later, "Salt" was sent to SoundCloud. On August 13, 2018, she released "Not Your Barbie Girl" as a promotional single. "Sweet but Psycho" was released on August 17, 2018. The song became Max's commercial breakthrough, reaching number one in more than 22 countries including Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Norway, Sweden, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, where it stayed at number one for four consecutive weeks. In January 2019, the song reached the top of the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, and later reached top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Max was also featured on the Vice and Jason Derulo song "Make Up" on October 23, 2018, and made an appearance on David Guetta's 2018 album 7 on the track "Let It Be Me".   On March 7, 2019, she released the follow-up single "So Am I", which reached the top 10 in Poland, Norway, Scotland, and Sweden. A remix of the song was released on July 3, 2019, which featured South Korean boy band NCT 127. The songs "Blood, Sweat & Tears" and "Freaking Me Out" were simultaneously released in July 2019 as promotional singles. On August 7, 2019, Max was featured on the song "Slow Dance" by American singer-songwriter AJ Mitchell, and released "Torn" as a single on August 19, 2019. On September 4, 2019, she entered a joint co-publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music and Artist Publishing Group. On October 31, 2019, she released a music video for "Freaking Me Out" as a Halloween special. Max won best Best Push Act at the 2019 MTV Europe Music Awards. On November 6, 2019, a duet called "Tabú" between Max and Pablo Alborán was released. The previously released song "Salt" was sent to digital streaming platforms on December 12, 2019. She collaborated with British-Norwegian DJ and record producer Alan Walker on the song "Alone, Pt. II", which was released on December 27, 2019. "On Somebody" was released as a promotional single on December 30, 2019.   On March 12, 2020, Max released "Kings & Queens" as the fifth single from her debut studio album Heaven & Hell (2020). She also appeared as a featured artist on the country song "On Me" with Thomas Rhett and Kane Brown. It was included on the soundtrack of the 2020 film Scoob! on May 15, 2020, accompanied with a music video. Max released "Who's Laughing Now" on July 30, 2020, and "OMG What's Happening" on September 3, 2020 as singles from the album. Heaven & Hell was released on September 18, 2020, alongside the eighth single "Naked". The album peaked at number two on the UK Albums Chart, and number 27 on the US Billboard 200.
