Move over Taylor Swift, there’s a new breakup queen in town. Olivia Rodrigo’s latest album SOUR has simply been blowing up the world of teenage Tik-Tokkers and yet surprisingly, it actually kind of slaps. It’s a one-way ticket to “in your feels” town so it’s time to start recalling those painful … or not so painful, high school memories of the ones who got away. Those boyfriends and girlfriends you swore were gonna settle down and have kids with? Those lovers who promised you that you were the only one for them? Yup, THOSE ones (p.s. I still miss you Kelsey). For real though, this album slaps. It's got some pop-punk vibes that transport you right back to the hallways of your high school, and Olivia’s voice is killer. At only 18-years old, it's clear we’ll be hearing her boyfriend's ballads for many years to come. So the only question that remains, is WHO hurt you Olivia? :(
