NEW MUSIC: OLIVIA RODRIGO | GRANTED (HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL: THE MUSICAL: THE SERIES
The past few weeks have been so good to Olivia Rodrigo fans — Gen Z and geriatric millennials alike. Between the season 2 premiere of "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" and the release of her debut album "Sour," today we get a new song from the series titled "Granted." It all comes to a head in this week's episode, "The Storm," when she gets stuck in Salt Lake City during a blizzard while on her way back to school in Denver and performs "Granted," as she wonders if she's making the right choice in leaving once again. If you loved season 1's "All I Want," get ready for a new favourite Rodrigo jam to occupy your brain. In recent news, Rodrigo’s debut album, “Sour,” released on May 21, debuted at the top of the chart. The set bows with 295,000 equivalent album units moved in its opening week -- not just the best first-week tally for an artist's debut album since the Billboard 200 switched from measuring direct sales to album units in 2014, but the best Week One number for any album by any artist in 2021 thus far.
