Olivia Rodrigo


For singer/songwriter Olivia Rodrigo, one of the greatest joys in life comes from deliberately tapping into her deepest heartache. “There’s nothing like sitting at the piano in my bedroom and writing a really sad song,” she says. “It’s truly my favorite thing in the world.”


With that, Rodrigo made a monumental debut with her record-breaking new original single via Geffen Records, “drivers license.” The stunning and emotive piano-driven track debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, held the top spot for eight consecutive weeks, and is the first song this year to be RIAA Certified at Gold, Platinum, and double-Platinum. Along with debuting at No. 1 across major streaming services, “drivers license” 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.


On April 1, Rodrigo released her latest single, “deja vu.” Complete with sparkling piano melodies, buzzing guitar synths, and Rodrigo’s soaring vocals, “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.


Rodrigo’s much-anticipated debut album, “Sour,” will be released on May 21.
