Olivia Rodrigo Gives Us a Little Taste of Her Upcoming Debut Album “SOUR” With a New Single “good 4 u”
The new single “good 4 u” is the third track released from her highly-anticipated debut album, SOUR, out Friday, May 21, 2021 via Geffen Records. On the new single Rodrigo delivers a euphorically upbeat and dynamic pop-rock track, brilliantly undercut by the biting honesty of her lyrics. The stadium-ready song – co-produced by Alexander 23 and frequent collaborator, Dan Nigro, once again underscores why Rodrigo is the most promising young artist to emerge this year.
Featured along the release, the new visual, directed by artist Petra Collins, pays homage to 90s/2000s cult horror and dark comedy films.
In her new forthcoming album she reveals the tremendous power of her raw self-expression, poetic specificity, and incredible talent at illustrating complex emotions in high-impact pop songs. Her mesmerizing, yet minimalist form alt-pop captured audiences worldwide on January 8, 2021, with the monumental launch of her original debut single, “drivers license.” The song debuted at No. 1 on the ARIA CHARTS, holding the top spot for six consecutive weeks and becoming the first in 2021 to hit one billion total global streams.
The global pop star has made music industry history again with the release of her incredible sophomore single, “deja vu” – becoming the first artist to debut her first two proper singles in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100. The ARIA Gold certified track underscores Rodrigo’s unforgettably honest narrative voice and introspective, sophisticated songwriting.
In her single “drivers license” she also 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.
