With the arrival of her record-breaking, 5x-platinum debut single “drivers license,” critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo revealed the tremendous power of her raw self-expression and songwriting prowess – ultimately cementing her status as the most promising young artist to emerge with the release of her first full-length album, SOUR – out now on Geffen Records.
SOUR was named the #1 Album of 2021 by Rolling Stone and called one of the Best Albums of 2021 by the New York Times. With over 1.3 billion streams, “driver’s license” was the top streamed song of 2021 on Spotify (both in the U.S. and worldwide), with SOUR earning the number one spot as the most globally streamed album.
Capping off Rodrigo’s banner year, Rodrigo was named Variety’s “Songwriter of the Year” and earned seven nominations for the 2022 Grammy Awards including “Record Of The Year,” “Album Of The Year,” “Song Of The Year,” “Best New Artist,” “Best Pop Solo Performance,” “Best Pop Vocal Album,” and “Best Music Video,” making her the second-youngest artist in Grammy history to score nods in each of the Big Four categories in the same year.
Now RIAA Triple Platinum Certified, upon its release, SOUR scored the most U.S. audio streams from a female debut album ever and broke the record for the most-streamed album in a week by a female artist in Spotify history with over 385M global steams. All 11 tracks from the album have landed in the top 30 of Billboard’s Hot 100, making Rodrigo the first female artist, and the fourth act overall, to simultaneously chart 11 or more songs in the top 30.
Rodrigo will embark on her sold-out SOUR Tour in the Spring which will visit more than 40 major cities across North America and Europe.
