MAX and QUINN XCII, “Love Me Less”
By early 2018, MAX’s “Lights Down Low” become The Song That Could – it went platinum in the US and reached #20 on the Billboard Hot 100 two years after its release. I was delighted to be a very early supporter of the song (and singer, back to 2015) and watch its ongoing success and the growth of the singer himself in the process. Between 2016 and 2018, MAX was featured as a vocalist on countless dance and electronic songs, many of whom you can find written up in these blog pages. And his energetic, personable concerts have now made him a major draw at festivals.
So “Love Me Less” is a new chapter for MAX. I don’t think I would be remiss in thinking that NYC’s Hell’s Kitchen’s Angel is targeting the same audience as Ariana Grande with this song. It’s edgy pop that sparkles with a fluid interlude from Quinn XCII that fits just right. MAX can unleash all in a song when given the opportunity, but here he is totally on point. And of the video above – the expression “If life gives you lemons, then make lemonade” comes to mind. MAX had throat surgery earlier this year that must have been so scary. But he has completely recovered and we’ll be hearing a lot more new MAX songs this year 🙂
