Sweet but Psycho
"Sweet but Psycho" is a song that was recorded by American singer Ava Max and was released on August 17, 2018, through Atlantic Records as the first single from her upcoming debut studio album. The song was co-written by Max, Madison Love, Andreas Andersen Haukeland, William Lobban-Bean, and Cirkut who also produced it. "Sweet but Psycho", a pop, dance-pop, electropop, and synth-pop song is about a woman being told she is "psycho". The song's title was inspired by Max's parents when she was a child. "Sweet but Psycho"'s lyrics and subsequent music video became controversial for allegedly stigmatizing the perception of mental illnesses such as psychosis and psychopathy; mental health organizations in Ireland attempted to ban the song from radio.
