Olivia Rodrigo has been vocal about how a certain Taylor Swift tune inspired one of her biggest hits, and now, she’s making that inspiration official. Olivia’s viral hit “Deja Vu” drew from Taylor’s “Cruel Summer” – if you’ve ever heard the two back-to-back you might’ve noticed the connections!
And as of July 9th, Taylor’s role in creating “Deja Vu” has been solidified: she’s listed as a co-writer, along with Jack Antonoff from the band Fun., and the alt-pop songstress St. Vincent too. All three hitmakers have made their mark on Olivia’s early career, so it’s no wonder she’s adding them into the song’s liner notes.
