    It definitely must not be hard to clear anymore. No disrespect toward Ava, but I doubt ABBA heard her bops exclusively and thought they were just so good they couldn't refuse.

  2. It sounds like Gimme Gimme Gimme. We heard about the 'sample' from someone who had heard the song early, but ABBA aren't credited.

    This is a direct sample, she uses some of the lyrics.
  3. Watch her add some whistle notes in there too, a la Mariah’s ‘Emotions’.
  4. Who would dare say no to Ava Max?!

  7. Maybe Benny & Björn are Little AVAtars. Frida and Agneta coming back with the Max cut etc.

  8. Makes no sense, she already ABBA on Torn, now she's sampling them again on a different song. Can't she use a different gimmick?

  11. I'm ready for more Ava. Christmas Without You got a lot of plays from me and really felt like it carried a lot of extra sentiment with everything going on this year.

    She might be basic, she might be completely uninspired, she might have a terrible haircut, but I have time for her as she's bringing pop bangers. Her scamming herself another ABBA sample only makes me more excited.
  12. I’m excited for a new song and I’ll take the ABBA sample. I still need to order the vinyl. I’m still surprised how much I ended up liking her album but she has pretty persistent as well.
  13. Does Torn actually sample Gimme, Gimme, Gimme though? I know it sounds really like it but is it possible it's just really similar?

  14. I think maybe it would fall on the interpolation side of things. I’m not for sure but to me it doesn’t sound like a exact sample but very close to it.
  15. I'm confused by the whole "Torn" situation as well. Whether it's a sample or an interpolation, shouldn't Benny and Björn appear in its credits?

  16. It's probably the same thing that happened with Prisoner (which sounds like an Olivia Newton-John interpolation but isn't), they consult with legals and change it enough that there's no credit needed.

    I feel like a Lil Maxipad made up the Torn sample story to get Ava a few extra streams.

  19. Lay All Your Love is like one the best Abba songs so I am excited.
