Olivia Rodrigo Reveals She Was “Lucky” To Get Taylor Swift’s Approval For ‘1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back’

Published: Monday 31st May 2021 by Ryan

Olivia Rodrigo is getting candid.

For, Pop music’s newest sensation sat down with Zach Sang, where she did not hold back. In particular, she talked about getting approval from Taylor Swift to use her song ‘New Year’s Day’ as a sample for her own track, ‘1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back.’

Her words below…

“We interpolated ‘New Year’s Day,’ which is Taylor’s song from ‘Reputation.’ I came up with the ‘1 step forward’ concept and I sort of wrote a verse and a chorus, and when I got home — I was in the car on a road trip, and when I got home, I decided to sing it over the chords of ‘New Year’s Day.’ I think they’re really beautiful chords. I was lucky enough to get that approved, and it’s on the record now.”

There has been no shortage of love between Swift and Rodrigo. The ‘Willow’ singer has even previously called Rodrigo and fellow singer Conan Gray her “children.” Swift also enlisted both of them to share snippets of her songs from ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’ before it was released.

‘1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back’ appeared on Rodrigo’s debut album ‘Sour,’ which recently topped the Billboard 200 chart (as we reported here).

    Normani has been in the industry longer than this driver’s license girl but compare their careers today

    Driver’s license girl
    2 number one songs
    A debut album
    3 top 10 hits
    A number one album

    1 solo top that flopped after all the hype

      I mean to be fair though, and I’m not crazy about either, but Normani has had every opportunity to drop new music and she hasn’t. Motivation was cute while it lasted but problem is it was written by Ariana Grande and let’s face it, she’s not the best either. The music industry programs every new generation of music listeners to automatically like someone. I really do hope her album was worth the 3 year wait!

    No offense to Taylor Swift but Olivia sings better. I’m not a fan of either, but to each their own. Sour has some good songs. It’s predicted that Olivia is going to dominate the 2022 Grammys nominations we shall see!!
