Five Things Coming For Olivia Rodrigo in 2022!

About a year ago, then 17-year-old Olivia Rodrigo dropped her first single, “driver’s license.” The song became a viral sensation online overnight, catapulting the young Disney Channel actress to a new level of fame in the music industry. Read on to find out more about the most exciting things the pop star has planned for 2022.

SOUR on Tour

Olivia first teased her tour when she posted a TikTok on December 5, tossing pens into a mug across the room. On her final attempt, she said “If I get this in, I’m going on tour.” And of course, she made the shot. The tour sold out in minutes, and will be stopping in numerous cities across the country and parts of Europe. Her openers include Holly Humberstone, Gracie Abrams, and Baby Queen.

High School Musical The Musical: The Series Season 3

The show that started it all for Olivia––High School Musical The Musical: The Series begins filming this month. Soon, fans will have a whole new season of the musical high school drama.

A Potential Grammy Win

In 2021, Rodrigo was nominated for seven Grammy awards–and this is only her first album. With the awards now postponed, we’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out if she takes home the awards, but fans are hopeful.

Collaborations

Olivia has mentioned that Taylor Swift is one of her biggest inspirations–so much that she’s credited as a songwriter on some of the tracks on “SOUR.” The two singer-songwriters finally met at the 2021 BRIT Awards, and with Swift in the process of re–recording her albums, there’s always a chance Rodrigo could wind up on a vault track–as many fans are hoping for.

New Music

Fan theories circulating on Twitter and TikTok since the release of “SOUR” have many listeners speculating the release of Rodrigo’s sophomore album being titled “SWEET,” a contrast to her debut that would explore the sweeter songs of romance. Rodrigo did confirm in October that she had begun her second album, but the title is still pending.
