Ava Max has claimed her first UK Number 1 with 'Sweet but Psycho'. The song held Pink's 'A Million Dreams' and Ariana Grande's 'thank u, next' off the top spot on The Official Vodafone Big Top 40.
Marvin Humes and Kat Shoob called Ava on FaceTime to reveal the news and it's fair to say she was pretty excited about it.
'Sweet but Psycho' is Ava's first big hit and has also gone to Number 1 in Germany, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark.
The American-Albanian singer has worked with the likes of David Guetta and Jason Derulo in the past.
It meant last week's Number 1 - Pink's 'A Million Dreams' cover from The Greatest Showman - slipped a place to Number 2.
