Max has caught wind of the leaks, and took to TikTok to address the stolen music.
“I wanted to come on here personally and talk about all the leaks that have been happening [with] Diamonds & Dancefloors.,” Max said. “I am extremely upset about it, obviously,”
“I don’t want anyone thinking I am trying to avoid this or anything,” she said. “I see what is happening. I, personally, haven’t seen the leaks or where they’re coming from online. I just know that it’s out there and — I don’t know… My team and I are trying our hardest to bring it down. We’ve all worked so hard on Diamonds & Dancefloors and I can’t wait for everyone to hear every single song on the album.”
In the video, she is visibly saddened, however, she maintains her composure throughout.
“I just wanted you to hear it from me that it is upsetting,” she said.
