TikTok thinks Olivia Rodrigo may release Sour sequel soon
Olivia Rodrigo quickly proves how Taylor Swift’s influence can be both a blessing and a curse at times.
Take her first album Sour, which is peppered with the introspective lyricism that made Tay such a revelation in the late 2000s, that only a Swiftie could skillfully navigate and then create. But another of Taylor’s proven characteristics of pop celebrity seems to have been absorbed by the osmosis driver’s license diva; the dreaded Easter egg.
According to TikTok user @codyjohnathan, a Sour tracking may be closer than we might have imagined.
Cody’s main theory stems from the fact that Olivia, throughout the past year, has previewed many songs as work progresses on her social media accounts. Some of these tracks were explicitly romance-centric. Sour, of course, is basically the opposite of that – a record that recalls in almost excruciating detail the emotional fallout of a relationship.
This means that Olivia may not have just given up on some of the most emoji love heart songs she wrote last year, but instead saved them for another project.
Another TikTok account, @gibbybender took this theory and followed it. She also adds that a proposed second album called Soft could have been teased already.
Gabby, like a real Swiftie / private investigator, spotted an Easter egg to find out why it might be. One of the main partners that Olivia has partnered with to promote Sour was the Sour Patch Kids brand of candy in the United States. The slogan on each of their boxes… “sour before sweet”.
Do you see what we mean by blessing and curse? Taylor would be very, very proud.
Of course, you can be too sour yourself and wonder why an artist would release a follow-up album and relaunch a new era so soon after another has already started … but then again, that’s it. that we thought before Always fall. And Without fear (Taylor version). And…
For what it’s worth, however, Olivia herself hasn’t made any confirmation of the existence of any new material beyond its beginnings so far. So choose to believe what you want, but it looks like Sour has no follow-up yet. Until, of course, it does. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
