Olivia Rodrigo gave us the biggest breakout hit of 2021 with “Drivers License”—and that’s just the beginning! Her debut album is on the way, and she recently teased its release with a brand-new single “Déjà Vu”.
Rodrigo’s latest single comes with an aesthetically pleasing music video filmed in Malibu that perfectly captures the feeling of watching your ex repeat the same experiences you went through together with another partner—such as driving up the California coast, eating strawberry ice cream, watching Glee reruns, and listening to Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl”.
“The concept of deja vu has always fascinated me and I thought it would be cool to use it in a song around the complex feelings after a relationship ends. I had so much fun creating the different melodies and sonic textures that you hear throughout,” said Rodrigo in a statement.
“Déjà Vu” isn’t a standalone single and Rodrigo used it to tease something even bigger—her debut studio album. This album will hit the shelves on May 21st, and it’s currently known under the working title *O*R. It will feature a total of 11 tracks, including Rodrigo’s chart-topping single “Drivers License”.
