We’re talking about Olivia Rodrigo, the star singer of the Disney + High School Musical: The Musical series!
Last week Zayn, Eddy de Pretto, Doja Cat were on our new releases playlist and you loved it! And in recent days, a singer has been at the center of all attention: Olivia Rodrigo. Still relatively unknown, she is making a huge buzz since the release of her title “drivers license” at Interscope. Followed by over 3.5 million people on Instagram, he is the star of the Disney + series High School Musical : The Musical – The Series, where she plays the young Nini. But who is this new phenomenon which agitates the internets? We try to see more clearly!
At just 17 years old, Olivia Rodrigo is a young American artist / songwriter / actress who made her debut in Grace Stirs Up Success, in the series New Girl and she also starred in the Disney Channel series Frankie and Paige. But that’s the role of Nina Salazar-Roberts in High School Musical : The Musical in 2019 which propels it on the front of the stage. “All I Want”, the first title of the series (which, rare, was written and composed by her) and a real success: More than 420M of streams in the world! Today signed at Interscope (Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish), she unveils her first single “drivers license” co-written with Dan Nigro who has already worked with Conan Gray or Lewis Capaldi, just that!
But at just 17, Olivia Rodrigo is also a very committed personality as she fights alongside the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media association, founded by actress Geena Davis to promote better representation of diversity in the audiovisual world.. Olivia Rodrigo’s debut EP, written during confinement, will be released later this year, we can’t wait to find out! In the rest of the news, we come back to the musical news that marked these last days with the metamorphosis of The Weeknd in his last clip, Damso under the spell of Noémie Lenoir and the return of Zayn!
