Ava Max scores first number-one airplay hit with "Kings & Queens"

Charlotte Rutherford

Ava Max‘s female empowerment anthem “Kings & Queens” has just become the ruler of a Billboard airplay chart for the first time.

The song, released back in March, is number-one on Billboard‘s Adult Pop Songs chart, which is based on radio airplay.  The highest she got on that chart previously was number two, with “Sweet but Psycho.” 

Reacting to the milestone, Ava tweeted, “THANK UI love you. This is crazy!!!…Brb cryin.”

“Kings & Queens” is also currently number two on Billboard‘s Pop Songs airplay chart and number 21 on the publication’s Adult Contemporary chart.  Ava has another hit on that chart as well: her holiday song “Christmas Without You.”

“Kings & Queens” is on Ava’s debut album, Heaven & Hell, which came out in September.
