Olivia Rodrigo has shared her three favorite tracks from her new album ‘Guts’.
The pop singer released her second album earlier this month, which contained the bad idea of the singles, right?’and ‘ vampire’.
The album received five stars from NME, which praised the artist as a “pop sensation” who “secures her place as a generational talent”.
Now the singer has revealed her favorite tracks from the new release. “My three favorite songs on the album right now,” she recently began in an interview with Amazon Music, “are ‘All-American Bitch’, ‘Logical’ and ‘Love is Embarrassing.'”
Rodrigo was also asked which emojis best describe the tracks. She chose a baseball emoji for “All-American Bitch” along with fireworks and lipstick, “because the song is about being a girl and fitting in with gender norms.”
For ‘Logical’ she chose three crying face emojis and for ‘love is embarrassing’ a shocked face, a sad face and an engagement ring.

When reviewing “Guts” after publication, NME said Rodrigo “goes to war for every young person who has not articulated why it is so derogatory not to be taken seriously”.
In the orbit of her urgent and turbulent second album, the 20-year-old makes her own vulnerabilities a battle cry: here she is a songwriter of control who plunges headlong into the collective female experience and at the same time seeks adventure, pleasure and relief.”
This month, the singer-songwriter picked up her second number one album in the UK, with ‘Guts’ leading the rest of the top 10 together.
The album collected over 60,000 chart units in its first week, with the debut album ‘Sour’ also re-entering the top 10 after the release of the second album.
‘Guts’ had the fourth biggest opening week for an album in 2023, behind records by Lewis Capaldi, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift.
Rodrigo will go on a big world tour in support of his second album and will start a season with 57 dates in Palm Springs, California in February 2024.
The European leg starts at Dublin’s 3Arena on 30 April, followed by stops in Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham and four nights at the O2 in London. You can see the full list of dates and buy the remaining tickets here.
The singer had to cancel her promotional tour in Australia a few days before the start due to”unforeseen circumstances”.
Elsewhere, Rodrigo recently responded to Chipotle’s joke, which refers to a text from his track ‘Ballad of a Homeschooled Girl’.
