Olivia Rodrigo continues to break records, debut album goes #1 on the Billboard Charts
After releasing her first album "SOUR," Rodrigo has been breaking records that have taken some legends years into their careers to make. Given she is only 18 years old and only beginning, it is exciting to think of where she will be in the next 5-10 years. Some fans believe Rodrigo is this generation's "Disney Girl," as she came from the reboot of High School Musical, and then started her solo music career, similar to Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez. She is also compared to Taylor Swift, due to her excellent songwriting that takes you through all of the emotional stages of heartbreak.
Some achievements "SOUR" has achieved:
Debut #1 on Billboard 200 (highest # of albums sold in 2021)
2 singles from the album debuted #1 on Billboard Hot 100
Has second most #1 debuts, tied with Lady Gaga and Britney Spears, and is only shortly behind Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Drake, and Ariana Grande
