Warner Chappell Music (WCM) and Artist Publishing Group (APG) today announced that they have entered into a joint co-publishing agreement with rising pop star and songwriter, Ava Max. The singer/songwriter released her breakout single "Sweet but Psycho" in mid-2018, reaching No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 in more than 25 countries, including Germany, Finland, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.

“I’m someone who speaks my mind, so it was important to me that my publisher value originality and creative expression,” said Max. “I trust the APG crew immensely, and am excited to collaborate with the Warner Chappell team to begin this next chapter.”

“Ava’s show-stopping vocals and sensational songwriting prove she is a true pop icon in the making, and we look forward to contributing to her growing success,” said WCM Co-Chair and CEO, Guy Moot. WCM’s President of A&R, U.S., Ryan Press and VP of A&R, Katy Wolaver added, "Ava is bold, fearless, and a breath of fresh air. The world’s only just begun to see the heights that she can hit, and we’re excited to be by her side in the journey ahead.”

“I’ve had the privilege of working closely with Ava, and it’s amazing to see her personality and creativity brought to life in her music,” said Angie Pagano, General Manager, Artist Publishing Group. “Her incredible voice and passion for pop music set her apart, and I’m happy to support her relentless determination as she continues to skyrocket.”


Artist Partner Group/Atlantic Records recording artist Ava Max landed her first hit single in 2017 when she teamed up with Nü Disco producer Le Youth for the track “Clap Your Hands.”

Max quickly rose to fame when her 2018 debut single as a solo artist, “Sweet but Psycho” became an instant global smash, earning RIAA-certified platinum status and peaking at No. 1 on U.S. Pop Radio.

In early 2019, she also topped Billboard’s Emerging Artists Chart for ten consecutive weeks off the strength of the song. Max followed her pop anthem with the motivational single “So Am I,” which landed at No. 5 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart.

In mid-August, she released a spirited disco-tinged single, “Torn.” Amid what has already been an incredible 2019, Max was dubbed an MTV Video Music Awards nominee for Best New Artist and named an Artist You Need to Know by Rolling Stone.
