Hot on heels with her latest pop anthem ‘Drivers License’, Olivia Rodrigo is back with a new magnificent single “deja vu”
Taking from Olivia’s forthcoming debut album, the new single “deja vu” further cements her status as the most promising young artist to emerge this year. Written by Rodrigo last fall, the track underscores her songwriting prowess, unique narrative voice, and talent at illustrating complex emotional spaces that often go unexplored in pop music. “deja vu” was also produced by Rodrigo’s frequent collaborator and co-writer, Dan Nigro.
Olivia Shares, “The concept of deja vu has always fascinated me and I thought it would be cool to use it in a song around the complex feelings after a relationship ends,” says Rodrigo. “I started writing and recording ‘deja vu’ last fall and had so much fun creating the different melodies and sonic textures that you hear throughout.”
Featured along the release, the new music video was directed by Allie Avital and co-starring Talia Ryder, made its global broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the ViacomCBS Times Square billboard. Captured on Malibu Beach, the video is available to watch.
Her latest single “drivers license” broke the Spotify record for the most single-day streams for a non-holiday song (on January 12) and had the biggest weekly streaming debut for any song globally in Spotify history – beating Rodrigo’s own previously-held record for the most Spotify streams for a song in a week.
Her pop anthem also broke BTS’ record for the most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 (eight consecutive weeks) and entered the charts at No. 1 in the U.K., Canada, Australia, the Netherlands, Norway, Ireland, New Zealand, and Portugal.
