Ex-boyfriends everywhere are shaking.
Why? Well on Friday, teen vocalist and actor Olivia Rodrigo dropped “great 4 u,” the 3rd single off her approaching launching album, SOUR. The video is fierce and filled with literal flames, the music and lyrics are somewhat reminiscent of Paramore, and the tunes total angsty energy strays from the 18-year-olds other popular releases, “drivers license” and “deja vu”.
If “chauffeurs license” made fans wish to sob behind the wheel while travelling the suburban areas, and “deja vu” made us wish to drive with the top down while licking strawberry ice cream, then “excellent 4 u” makes us want to … I dont know … slide on tall black gloves and commit arson? (Please dont do this. You ARE free to rage-eat some Smartfood popcorn, though.).
The point is, this ladys got variety. She went from Sad Girl to Mad Girl in the blink of an eye and both styles suit her remarkably. Fans are truly feeling Rodrigos dark side, her pointed f-bomb dropping, and her basic Taylor Swift fulfills Lorde satisfies Avril Lavigne vibes.

If “motorists license” made fans want to sob behind the wheel while travelling the residential areas, and “deja vu” made us want to drive with the top down while licking strawberry ice cream, then “excellent 4 u” makes us desire to … I do not understand … slide on high black gloves and dedicate arson? Fans are really feeling Rodrigos dark side, her pointed f-bomb dropping, and her basic Taylor Swift satisfies Lorde satisfies Avril Lavigne vibes.
In addition to playing the music video on a loop, “excellent 4 u” stans are celebrating its success with wonderful memes. Please take pleasure in these humorous odes to our newest fury bop.
