The woman who inspired this article, Olivia Rodrigo, has the Taylor Swift brand all over her music. On “1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back,” Olivia includes an interpolation of the piano from Taylor’s “New Year’s Day.”
She credits Taylor and Jack Antonoff, but didn’t sample the exact music; otherwise, the royalties would have gone to Taylor’s ex label, Big Machine. Queen of being sneaky!
Sounds like: “Dear John” (and “New Year’s Day,” duh)
