Olivia Rodrigo Says Taylor Swift Thinks She’s ‘Going to Be Big’
Taylor Swift apparently believes that Olivia Rodrigo is the next big thing in pop.
On Thursday (February 4), in an interview with Nylon, the "drivers license" singer spoke about Swift, who is one of her personal idols, and admitted that she's "the world's biggest Swiftie."
“I don’t even know if I’m supposed to be saying this, but I think it’s fine. Somebody told me that Aaron Dessner [writer and producer] said that Taylor talks to him about me," Rodrigo shared. "And Taylor said that Aaron has to work with me because she loves my music and she thinks that it’s going to be big.”
Swift's gut instinct is very likely correct: Rodrigo is certainly on her way to becoming a big superstar. On only its fourth day of release, her debut single achieved the Spotify record for the most single-day streams for a non-holiday song.
After the single's release, celebs flooded Rodrigo's social media comments with praise—including Swift.
Swift first interacted online with Rodrigo when Rodrigo posted a screenshot of the iTunes chart which had "drivers license" under Swift's two evermore releases. "Next to Taylor on the U.S. iTunes chart, I’m in a puddle of tears," Rodrigo captioned the post.
"I say that's my baby and I'm really proud," Swift replied.
Rodrigo reacted to Swift's comment in a video. "What is breathing?" she captioned the clip of her tearing up.
