Celebrities wiping off their Instagram posts is not a new trend but it surely creates curiosity among their followers and the same happened when teen sensation Olivia Rodrigo deleted all her posts from her official Instagram account only to share a short video later.

The ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ star created quite a stir on the Internet after her big move but the fans started assuming that the 18-year-old singer-songwriter might be up to something. Social media users made their wild guesses about Rodrigo’s cryptic video claiming that she could be dropping new music. We dig into some clues which hint towards her new releases.

Is Olivia Rodrigo dropping new music?

Rodrigo did not post any official confirmation on her Twitter or Facebook or Instagram account whether her new release will be a single or a full-length album. However, her short cryptic video post is enough to assume she might be dropping new music very soon. The video does not come with an audio or a caption but it features an old TV set showing a melting ice-cream. Rodrigo is currently basking in the success of her chart-topping single ‘Drivers License’ which was released in January 2021.

The track reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, making the actress and singer the youngest artist ever to debut atop the chart. 



Is Olivia Rodrigo following Taylor Swift’s steps?

Rodrigo on several occasions has expressed her admiration for pop star Taylor Swift and thanks to her hit single ‘Drivers License’, she even got a response from the pop star herself in January 2021. Swift had commented on one of Rodrigo’s Instagram posts of ‘Drivers License’ saying, “I say that's my baby and I'm really proud.”

The reason we are saying she might be following Swift’s steps is that in August 2017, the ‘Love Story’ hitmaker had deleted her Instagram account leaving the Internet in shock. She had even removed her display picture and bio. But to everyone’s surprise, the music mogul retracted her Instagram only to announce her new album ‘Reputation’ a week later. Now, it looks like Rodrigo might be following the same route and we can expect an official announcement from the singer very soon.

 ‘I want it to be super versatile'

Rodrigo dropped subtle hints about her future projects when she sat for an interview with Nylon in February 2021. While talking about her artistic vision for her first album, she said, “I want it to be super versatile. My dream is to have it be an intersection between mainstream pop, folk music, and alternative rock. I love the songwriting and the lyricism and the melodies of folk music. I love the tonality of alt-rock. Obviously, I’m obsessed with pop and pop artists. So I’m going to try and take all of my sort of influences and make something that I like.”

Rodrigo added, “I actually feel a lot more confident in my writing abilities since ‘Drivers License’ came out.”
