Breakout popstar of 2020/2021?

Olivia RodrigoThe breakout pop star of 2021 is Olivia Rodrigo, the singer and actress whose debut single,went straight to the top of the Billboard charts in January and stayed for two months.

The heartbreaking ballad is cleverly constructed around a scenario that's teen angsty in the extreme. Finally old enough to drive herself to her boyfriend's house, the singer now finds herself replaced by that"blonde girl" who's"everything I'm insecure about". Now she spends her days driving past his house alone,"'cause how could I ever love someone else?".

The most obvious influence is Taylor Swift, but Rodrigo is no mere imitator, and when she sings with a sob in her voice, she also brings to mind confessional songwriters like Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes., which is a collaboration with songwriter-producer Dan Nigro, makes multiple musical moves, from grungy guitar-rock onand the anxious. The returns diminish toward the end of the album, but on the whole, it's an impressive enterprise from a young talent with a bright future.
