There are many reference points to be sure even though the song is simple enough. I do like all those artists.

You could perhaps say chorus = TS, bridge = Lorde, verses = Phoebe.

Obv not as good as them at their best but my first time listening to it (in a way out of obligation, having seen the show, not expecting much) my reaction was that huh, this is good. Still surprising that it took off and makes me wonder if people were just ready for a new direction in mainstream chart hits, maybe TS prepped them with the 2020 avalanche of pensive pop.

Maria Mena's cool and releases stuff infrequently but here in Norway she did a Mariah and made a new xmas standard that gets massive play every season.

This guys end of year list is ridiculously good so far. Pretty much all non-US/UK pop. I barely know anything, but a lot of great tracks.

but idk .. part of it seems sus - like taylor swift commenting on her IG is a news story? https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/9509341/olivia-rodrigo-taylor-swift-drivers-license-proud-mom/

that being said, i deff dig it - kind of lorde-lite lol


rodrigo is a known taylor stan so I don't know if there's any conspiracy here.. I think taylor commenting on anything will be a news story


ah ok i didn't know that taylor was that active on social media again, like that seems like a tumblr-taylor kind of move. but that's cool for her to keep tabs on the upcoming generation like that. i also can totally see your point about pensive pop being a 2021 trend, this could be a real shift.

also i'm looking at olivia's spotify and I did not realize how big HSM:TM:TS was - her solo vh1-you-oughtta-know-esque song from the show has 190 million plays on Spotify.

i'm sorry for implying that ur a plant olivia

excited for Joshua Bassett's song to come out - it's gotta be jack johnson-esque like his other singles and I feel like it's gonna get clowned hard

Don't know if this is much of a song but it is racing to #2 on the UK charts and I like garage pop making a comeback
