Weekends are made for catching up on new shows, films, and Olivia Rodrigo's latest BTS documentary, driving home 2 u (a SOUR film). Now available on Disney+, Olivia takes a roadtrip from Salt Lake City, Utah to Los Angeles reminiscing about the journey of writing her debut chart-topping album, SOUR. Along the way, she performed songs from the album throughout various sceneries during pit stops across states bringing a different vibe to the songs.
The documentary gave an inside look at the preparation and production of the album as Olivia shared about her heartbreak, frustrations, and nervousness of putting her feelings into songs. She worked with songwriter and producer, Dan Nigro for the album and his BTS clips of their studio time really shows the audience how much work was put into the project. We learned that the first track off SOUR, "Brutal" was written in a day right before the official track listing was decided. Olivia wanted an upbeat track to contrast "all the sad songs." What was initially a fun jam session turned into the single introducing Olivia's sound as an artist.
See how this Grammy-nominated artist grew as a teen to this certified superstar artist in the blink of an eye. The documentary reminds viewers how Olivia has so much to offer in her young career and with the success of SOUR, the only direction is up. Disney+ also shared BTS polaroid photos while filming, giving us all deja vu of when we first listened to the record. Performing new renditions of all the tracks on the album, Olivia surprises fans with an unreleased track, "baby is you" to close out the film while credits roll. We hope the song officially release so we can add it to our playlists.
