During a recent Songwriter Roundtable interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Olivia Rodrigo opened up about how listening to Lorde’s hit song ‘Royals’ profoundly impacted her life. The singer-songwriter spoke about the moment she first heard the music on the radio and how it changed her life. She revealed that the song’s lyrics and melody resonated deeply, inspiring her to pursue a music career.

Furthermore, Rodrigo also discussed the inspiration behind some of the “emo” lyrics in her latest songs, ‘Lacy’ and ‘All-American Bitch’.

The young artist’s music is gaining immense popularity among fans of all ages, and her talent and passion for music will continue to shape the industry for years.

“I remember hearing that song on the radio at the time… It was one of those ‘pinch me’ moments where you always remember, a snapshot memory, like, ‘Oh my God, what is this?!’ Changes the trajectory of your life,”

“I remember listening to it as I first started writing songs and just being blown away by her lyrics that are just about being a teenager living in the suburbs. I just remember never hearing my life be put into a song like that where it just made being young and doing these seemingly unimportant things feel so sacred.”
