Olivia Rodrigo is worried about the pressure to create an album that will be worthy of "Sour".
Olivia Rodrigo is already feeling the pressure of success for her second album.

The 18-year-old singer was successful overnight at the beginning of the year with her first solo single, "Drivers License", followed by her first album, "Sour", which also topped the charts.

Speaking as part of the Rolling Stones' "Musicians on Musicians" tribute to Alanis Morissette, who enjoyed similar sudden success with the 1995 album "Jagged Little Pill", Olivia Rodrigo admitted that she was already thinking about pushing for an album that would be worthy of "Sour".

"The pressure of the second album is something I think about a lot. "I do not know if you felt that pressure," he told Alanis Morissette.

After "Jagged Little Pill", wherever I went, in every supermarket, I was always asked: "When will your next album be released? I hate men too! ” I did not want to write it right away. "There is a lot of pressure to respond to a strange circumstance or a bar," the Canadian singer replied.

"We had a similar experience, where we had a very successful first album, which is strange," commented Olivia Rodrigo.

"It simply came to our notice then. It seemed to me like it happened overnight, while I have been working and writing songs since I was five years old. It certainly did not happen overnight. "But the transition from 'writing songs in my bedroom' to 'oh my God, a lot of people know this song' was very quick for me," he said.

"I obviously feel so lucky, but sometimes I feel it has nothing to do with me," he continued.

"I always think creativity is sometimes really magical and heavenly and it's awesome to be the vehicle for an amazing song, but sometimes it has nothing to do with you. "I try not to give too much selfishness to it," said Olivia Rodrigo.
