Music: Sour

Released: May 21, 2021

By: Olivia Rodrigo

Who would’ve thought a Disney Channel star would be the breakout singer of 2021? After the release of her debut single “Drivers License” and its subsequent blow up on TikTok, it seemed like only a matter of time for Olivia Rodrigo to make her mark.

Anyone in Gen Z could tell you the Rodrigo-Joshua BassettSabrina Carpenter love triangle was some of the biggest news last year. Rodrigo smartly got her music out first and won her legion of fans. But more than just the drama behind the song, Rodrigo crafts incredibly written songs that can completely shift midway through.

Sour is an experience. You’re going through this breakup with her and entering the different stages of grief. She’s angry in some (the banger “Good 4 U”) and feels betrayed in others (the devastating “Traitor”).

Final song: Enjoy the ride. ★★★★★
