“Who’s Laughing Now” is a song by American singer Ava Max, released on July 30, 2020, through Atlantic Records as the sixth single from her debut studio album, Heaven & Hell (2020). The song was written by Max, Madison Love, Måns Wredenberg, Noonie Bao, and producers Cirkut and Lotus IV. It is a dance-pop song with lyrics about a girl being gaslighted, serving as a continuation from Max’s 2018 song “Sweet but Psycho“. The Isaac Rentz-directed music video was released on July 30, 2020, and features Max seeking revenge on her boss and cheating boyfriend.
Max first teased “Who’s Laughing Now” on her social media accounts on May 28, 2020, before officially announcing the single’s initial June 2, 2020 release date, and cover art the next day. The release date was subsequently postponed because it coincided with Blackout Tuesday. She then announced that the song would be released on June 25, 2020, but was also indefinitely delayed on June 17, 2020. She eventually announced that it would be released on July 30, 2020. The cover art depicts a topless Max positioned in front of a flaming background. “Who’s Laughing Now” was written by Max, Madison Love, Måns Wredenberg, Noonie Bao, Cirkut and Lotus IV, with the latter two handling production.
