May 16, 2021

Olivia Rodrigo was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live last night (May 15) watch her play ‘Drivers License’ and new single ‘good 4 u’ below.
Earlier this week, the singer made her live debut at the BRIT Awards in London, performing ‘Drivers License’, and followed it up last night with a two-song set on SNL.
Watch the performances, which come ahead of the singer’s imminent debut album ‘SOUR’, which arrives next week (May 21), below.
In a new NME cover feature, Rodrigo spoke of the inspiration behind new song ‘good 4 u’, which came out this week following record-breaking debut single ‘Drivers License’ and second preview ‘Deja Vu’, saying: “We wanted to take an early 2000s pop-punk song and sort of twist it and find a way to make it 2021. I hope people are surprised.
She added: “I love pop-punk music; I love grunge music; I love country music and folk music. I think, honestly, you can see little influences of all of those genres in my album. And I didn’t want to make an entire record that sounded like ‘Drivers License’. There’s no fun in that for me and probably not for listeners, either.”
Soon after its release, ‘Drivers License’ became the biggest song in the UK of 2021 thus far. Rodrigo’s debut single debuted at Number 1 and remained in the top spot for nine weeks beginning in January this makes it the longest-running Number One debut single since Gnarls Barkley‘s ‘Crazy’ in 2006.
