Olivia Revealed The Title & Tracklist For Her Debut Album & They'll Get You Hype
The success surrounding her smash single, "drivers license," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on Jan. 19, made Olivia Rodrigo an instant star to watch. Fans were hungry for more music, and the star delivered with the release of her second single, "deja vu," on April 1. While both of her tracks are amazing breakup anthems, Rodrigo promises her upcoming record will be "super versatile" because there will be a variety of genres and topics she'll cover. If you're a fan, here's everything you need to know about Olivia Rodrigo's debut album, including its title, release date, music videos, tracklist, and more.
In a Feb. 4 interview with Nylon, Rodrigo admitted due to her first single's overwhelming success on the charts, she initially thought she wouldn't be able to write something "as good" as "drivers license." However, she said fans' response to the track and their encouragement has made her "more confident" in her songwriting abilities, and she's been spending every day writing music ever since.
