By now, we all know just how incredible Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album Sour is, and while it’s only been less than a week since the album dropped, she’s already made history MULTIPLE TIMES! Let’s get into it.
We knew Olivia Rodrigo’s first album was going to make a splash in the music industry as soon as we saw the massive success she had with her debut single, Driver’s License. But as time went on and she dropped two more singles from the album, her talent and songwriting skills were completely undeniable.
And with that came even more insane, history-making success for a new artist like Olivia. She performed at the Brits on S.N.L., and now, just days after her first album dropped, Billboard revealed that her single Good 4 U also debuted at number one on the charts.
And reaching number one once is no small feat, let alone twice in a matter of months! According to Pop Crave, Good 4 U going number one was a historic moment as Olivia became the first female artist to debut two songs at #1 on Billboard’s Global 200 singles chart.
And as if that wasn’t enough, they also reported that the entire album Sour is projected to break the record for the most streams for a debut album by a female artist in its first week, with over 225 million streams. Yes, OLIVIA DID THAT! And while Olivia is completely deserving of every history-making record she’s breaking right now; she still can’t even believe it.
She took to Instagram when news that Good 4 U went number one, sharing a screenshot of the Hot 100 chart writing, “GOOD 4 U IS NUMBER ONE!!!!!!!! IM SO HAPPY AHHHHHH!!!!! ily” Olivia also tagged her collaborators on the album and shared this photo of a crying cat that perfectly encapsulated her emotions over this news.
And fans have also been reacting to the exciting news that Olivia made history. One person tweeted writing, “she runs the music industry,” Another person wrote, “she truly is the moment !!” They’re not wrong!
Another fan looked ahead, saying, “She is a force of nature. Imagine her next era with collabs” Some others wondered if other artists like Lady Gaga and Cardi B also held this same record that Olivia just made.
But this person clarified, writing, “they both have songs in their debut album which CLIMBED to #1, yes. but driver’s license and good 4 u DEBUTED at #1, not the same.” They’re all absolutely incredible artists who have made history throughout their careers, but as that fan said, this is certainly Olivia’s moment.
We couldn’t be more excited for her, and this is just the beginning! While we’re enjoying our Sour girl summer, we can’t help but dream up who we’d love to see Olivia collaborate with in the future. And we can’t help but hope this album gets the recognition it deserves at next year’s award shows!
