Olivia Rodrigo

Singer, Songwriter, and Actor

Hailed by The New York Times as “a songwriter of rather astonishing purity,” Olivia Rodrigo took up piano at age seven and began crafting her own lyrics at 12. On her record-breaking, culture-defining debut album SOUR, she offered up a wildly resonant account of her very first heartbreak. Featuring her 5x Platinum breakthrough single “drivers license,” SOUR made history as the longest-running debut album on the Billboard 200 top 10 this century, landed at No. 1 on Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2021 list, and earned Rodrigo three GRAMMY® awards.

At 20, she released her highly anticipated second album GUTS – a body of work that magnified the raw power of her genre-bending sound while delving deeper into her vast and vivid inner world. Rodrigo reunited with SOUR producer Daniel Nigro to record GUTS which was praised as an “instant classic” by Rolling Stone, a “masterpiece” by the Los Angeles Times and “bitingly charismatic” by Pitchfork. An auspicious introduction to the next era of Rodrigo’s career, GUTS’ lead single “vampire” revealed her profound evolution as a lyricist. In July 2023, the song debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and returned to the top spot in September 2023 – coinciding with the No. 1 debut of GUTS on the Billboard 200 and Olivia on the Artist 100, thereby giving Rodrigo a chart triple. GUTS also topped the album charts in over thirteen countries including the UK, Canada, Ireland, Germany, The Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand.

In 2023, Olivia released “Can’t Catch Me Now” from The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes (Music From & Inspired By). “Can’t Catch Me Now” marks Rodrigo’s first contribution to a film soundtrack. “Can’t Catch Me Now,” which won 2023 Hollywood Music In Media Award for SciFi/Fantasty Film, was shortlisted for 2024 Oscars and nominated for a SCL Award for “Outstanding Original Song For A Dramatic Or Documentary Visual Media Production.”
