Ava Max knows what it’s like stuck in a love-hate relationship. Now, she wants you to know how it feels, too.
Max has unveiled the video for her latest single “Torn,” a dance track where the star sings about the internal struggle of wanting to leave, while also wanting to stay.
“You show me love and give me war/ I can’t get enough, can’t take anymore/ Oh no, right now baby I’m torn,”
Directed by Joseph Kahn (Britney Spears, Taylor Swift) and is a collaboration with Fiat; filmed in Milan, Italy and stars Max as a superhero with a secret identity.
“Shooting the ‘Torn’ music video was a dream come true, I got to travel all over Milan as a superhero confronting my cheating husband. I want women to know all around the world that they have the power!”

In addition, Max wanted “Torn” to be an accurate depiction of feeling two opposed emotions at the same time.
“Love and hate are two of the strongest emotions we feel in relationships. ‘Torn’ explores the struggle between them that everyone can relate to.”
