JAKARTA - Singer Olivia Rodrigo became the youngest musician to receive the most nominations at the 2022 Grammy Awards after Jon Batiste and Justin Bieber. Thanks to his debut album, Sour, he received seven nominations including Best New Artist and Album of the Year.
Rodrigo is also the only musician to have received nominations in the top four Grammy categories: Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artists.
Previously, this achievement was obtained by Billie Eilish who received four major nominations in 2020 with the album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
At the age of 18 years, at least Rodrigo became the second youngest singer of all time with the first Grammy nomination. He is also called the first Filipino-American artist to get this achievement.
2021 has indeed been a shining year for Olivia Rodrigo. Success with the High School Musical series, he released his first single titled Drivers License at the beginning of the year.
The album Sour, which was released last May, contains lyrics that he composed while undergoing COVID-19 quarantine since March 2020. The songs focus on love stories and relationships with his ex-lover.
“I love songs that make you hear them and make you feel like you're in another world… and how you feel through imagination and detail,” Olivia Rodrigo told Variety.
Through his Instagram account, Rodrigo wrote about moments in childhood when he lived near the Staples Center, the building where the Grammys were held.
“I always see arenas and trophies with the winner's name written. I went to the Grammys museum on the weekends because I was fascinated by the history of the show and the great musicians," he said.
“Many dreams have come true for me this year but this is the one that means the most. Thank you everyone who believed in and supported the songs I wrote. Thanks @recordingacademy. I am grateful. A day I will never forget," concluded Olivia Rodrigo.
