 Released on September, 8 of 2023 new Olivia Rodrigo album ‘’Guts’’  is slowly becoming popular, as fans reminisce on the Grammy-winning ‘’Sour’’ album. The album ‘’Sour’’ was a fan favorite among pre-teens, teens, and young adults. Her new album could be considered a big success among teens and young adults. Rodrigo has sold over 302,000 albums and has over 100 million streams of her new album ‘’Guts’’.  The Album was produced with help of Rodrigo’s friend, Petra Collins. It is her sophomore album . Based on the reviews from students the new album “Guts” may not be everyone’s  favorite.

   Natalia Dominguez (‘26) Is loving this new album and the old album ‘’Sour’’

“I think that “Guts’’ is starting to grow on me. But right now I’m still in my “Sour’’ era. I don’t know, it just connected with me more.’’ Dominguez said

Griffin Murphy (‘26) Loved the old album ‘’Sour’’ more than the new one.

   “I definitely prefer  “Sour’’ over  “Guts’’ because it was more relatable for me personally. I also feel like the songs were better in the “Sour’’ album.’’ Murphy Said

   The new album “Guts” has certain colors that represent new stages of Olivia’s life. According to online sources, the purple in her album represents her child- like innocence and the red represents her new adulthood stage in her life, Rodrigo is now entering.The “Guts’’ album has included more rock, loud music whereas the  “Sour’’ album was more piano and soft melancholy songs. Her “Sour’’ album was the big debut album of her songwriting career. Recently there has been a scandal concerning one of the new album’s songs. It supposedly is a rip off of one of famous singer and actor Miley Cyrus song. Both of the songs are similar in sound and some lyrics. This supposed rip off may ruin Rodrigo’s career forever. With this scandal, the new album could get taken down, so listen to it while you can! Based on the reviews we have from students, we consider the album “Guts” to be a fail.
