Rumor has it that the follow-up to Olivia Rodrigo‘s SOUR album would be something more along the lines of “sweet.” Makes sense right since Olivia Rodrigo’s whole persona plays with the idea of sour and sweet just like Sour Patch Kids. Until then, her debut album is still on repeat and making major moves on the streaming and radio charts. Olivia was practically putting all our hearts on a sleeve when she released SOUR and we’re here to give you some of the best clapback lyrics we all wished we said. So good 4 us, Olivia did!
“good 4 u”: The perfect track to get you in an angsty mood to ride out the bad vibes. It’s definitely the song on the album that gives off the most Avril energy as she tells us it’s okay to let it all out!
And good for you, I guess that you’ve been working on yourself
I guess that therapist I found for you, she really helped
Now you can be a better man for your brand-new girl
“traitor”: I mean, it’s in the title. The single that tells it how it is. We’re all thinking it, but Olivia said it.
You’d talk to her
When we were together
Loved you at your worst
But that didn’t matterIt took you two weeks
To go off and date her
Guess you didn’t cheat
But you’re still a traitor
“deja vu”: The track that’s a little bit passive-aggressive, but we all can’t stop singing to! It’s a push and pull between remembering the happy memories in a relationship while Olivia also telling us it’s okay to be jealous that person moved on without you.
So when you gonna tell her
That we did that too?
She thinks it’s special
But it’s all reused
That was our place, I found it first
I made the jokes you tell to her when she’s with you
“jealousy, jealousy”: In this track, Olivia claps back at herself. She writes about comparing herself to everyone and feels like her life isn’t any deeper than an IG feed. We all get in the funk of thinking we’re not enough: ‘I should be this or that,’ ‘this needs to look perfect’ and the list goes on and on. Show of hands on who’s also guilty of this…
All your friends are so cool, you go out every night
In your daddy’s nice car, yeah, you’re livin’ the life
Got a pretty face, pretty boyfriend, too
I wanna be you so bad, and I don’t even know you
All I see is what I should be
Happier, prettier, jealousy, jealousy
All I see is what I should be
I’m losin’ it, all I get’s, jealousy, jealousy
“enough for you”: One of the tracks written entirely by Olivia herself that describes more of a hopeful breakup. The folky, emotional song alludes to finding someone else who’ll appreciate her better and the effort she puts in the relationship.
Don’t you think I loved you too much to be used and discarded?
Don’t you think I loved you too much to think I deserve nothing?
But don’t tell me you’re sorry, boy
Feel sorry for yourself
‘Cause someday I’ll be everything to somebody else
And they’ll think that I am so exciting
And you’ll be the one who’s crying
