Good 4 u Olivia! Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album “Sour” is a commercial success. Her singles off the album such as Good 4 u and Driver’s License are constantly on the radio. She’s topping off every chart. And if you’re on TikTok then you definitely hear her songs constantly. She’s quickly become the queen of TikTok sounds.
Multiple Olivia songs are viral TikTok sounds and have trends that coincide with them. Let’s break down some of her current and past viral sounds.
All I Want
“All I Want” is an original Olivia Rodrigo song that is featured on Season 1 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Olivia plays the character NiNi on HSMTMTS. The song has gone viral a few times on TikTok. Originally, it went viral in late 2019, when the show aired and was used to show self-love with the line “All I have is myself at the end of the day.”
A year later, the song went viral again. This time, for a different line and with a different trend. The line “I found a guy who told me I was a star” became the soundtrack for a new trend. People put up screenshots of men telling them rude things with “All I Want” as the sound.
Olivia’s song “Driver’s License” is one of her biggest hits, and TikTok is responsible. Not only does the entire app care about the drama that surrounds the song, but they also love to use it.
The most viral trend which used the sound was where women filmed themselves falling back onto their bed and transforming from everyday clothes to beautiful dresses and gowns. A combination of the chorus and the bridge is used for this trend.
Another viral Olivia Rodrigo song? Sounds familiar. “Deja Vu” another single off of her debut album “Sour” and just like “Driver’s License”, it is the soundtrack of another viral trend.
All you have to do for this one is rapidly switch the inverter filter on and off and lip sync.
Good 4 U
Do you have pent-up anger and aggression about a past relationship? If you answered yes, boy do I have the song for you. “Good 4 U” is about the anger you feel when your ex moves on and is doing great. You know, like the sociopath they are.
This song, which is the final single released before the album drop, is catchy and edgy, making it the perfect TikTok song. People have been lip-syncing and doing amazing transitions using the sound.
There are so many great songs on the album and “Brutal” is one of them. Olivia captures the essence of how awful it is to be a young adult in today’s world.
People are using the sound to show their fails, showcasing the line “God, it’s brutal out here.”
“Traitor” resonates with anyone whose ex is currently together with the person they said not to worry about. Its virality comes as no surprise and it’s home to multiple trends.
People are using it to showcase fictional relationships that didn’t work out such as Derek and Addison’s on “Grey’s Anatomy.” They are also using the sound for real-life celebrity relationships like Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder.
The sound also is used for products that are no longer being sold. The line “God I wish you thought this through before I went and fell in love with you” is being showcased to show how much they miss products such as Starbucks strawberry acai refresher.
