Sour by Olivia Rodrigo scores a fourth week at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart, narrowly fending off Queen’s Greatest Hits collection.

Sour – the UK’s biggest album of 2021 so far – finishes the week just 270 chart sales ahead of Queen’s Greatest Hits, extending Olivia’s reign as the only artist to spend more than a week at Number 1 this year on the Official Albums Chart.


Olivia Rodrigo has been open about how much Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” influenced her Sour single “Deja Vu.” Now she has made the connection official by adding Swift, Jack Antonoff, and St. Vincent as co-writers on the track.

The songwriters have been added to the track’s Spotify and TIDAL metadata, with credit going to them over the song’s bridge.

Rodrigo’s Swift fandom cuts deep, and the pair first interacted when Swift acknowledged a cover Rodrigo had done of “Cruel Summer.” After releasing “Deja Vu” as the second single off her debut album, Rodrigo told Rolling Stone that the yelling on the bridge of the song was inspired by the fan-favorite Lover track.
“It’s one of my favorite songs ever. I love like the yelly vocals in it, like the harmonized yells that [Swift] does, I think they’re like super electric and moving, so I wanted to do something like that,” the singer says in the video. The song is also the only collaboration between Swift and St. Vincent, who both work with Antonoff. (Reps for Rodrigo and Swift did not immediately reply to requests for comment.)

This is the second Sour track to feature a Swift-Antonoff interpolation and writing credit, with “1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back,” borrowing from the Reputation ballad “New Year’s Day.” Although the pair have yet to actually link up in a studio or for a performance, Swift and Rodrigo have been orbiting around each other over the course of the year. Rodrigo and friend/fellow famous Swiftie Conan Gray were part of the Fearless (Taylor’s Version) rollout and made TikToks set to songs off the re-recorded take on Swift’s sophomore LP. Swift also gave Rodrigo a ring she wore while recording Red. They officially met at the Brit Awards, where they exchanged handwritten letters.

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U” tops the Rolling Stone Top 100 Songs Chart for a sixth straight week, surpassing Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B (“WAP”) and Mariah Carey (“All I Want For Christmas Is You”) as the female artist with the most consecutive weeks at Number One.

“Good 4 U,” Rodrigo’s second Number One hit on the RS 100, pulled in 212,000 units in its sixth week, about 40,000 units ahead of BTS’s “Butter,” which spends a sixth straight week at Number Two.

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U” spent a fifth week at Number One on the Rolling Stone Top 100 Songs chart. After debuting at Number Two behind J. Cole, “Good 4 U” — which alternates between bass-heavy swagger and full-throttle pop-punk — climbed to the top of the chart, and it has stayed there ever since. Each week, the single’s streams have fallen: While it hit Number One with 57.4 million streams five weeks ago, “Good 4 U” pulled in 28.2 million last week. But despite the gradual decline, it has still maintained a healthy lead over the competition. BTS’ “Butter” stayed at Number Two on the latest chart, earning more downloads than any other track.

With five weeks at Number One on the RS 100, “Good 4 U” has now matched the chart-topping run of Rodrigo’s previous single, “Drivers License.” In addition, all 11 songs from Sour, Rodrigo’s debut album, are still on the RS 100.


Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for a second total week, as the album steps 3-1 in its fifth week on the list. It earned 105,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending June 24 (down 14%), according to MRC Data. The album debuted at No. 1 on the chart dated June 5.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new July 3, 2021-dated chart (where Sour returns to No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard’s website on June 29. For all chart news, follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.

Sour is the second album in 2021 to earn in excess of 100,000 units in each of its first five weeks, following Dangerous: The Double Album, which also collected 100,000-plus weeks in its first five frames (charts dated Jan. 23 – Feb. 20). (It’s worth noting that Dangerous had 30 tracks aiding its SEA and TEA units, while Sour only has 11.)

Olivia Rodrigo reclaims the Official Chart double as SOUR returns to Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart for a third week, and good 4 u extends its reign at the top of the Official Singles Chart to five weeks.

good 4 u notched up 73,000 chart sales – including 8.8 million streams – to claim a fifth week at the summit. It makes the track the longest-reigning rock-influenced Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart in 25 years, since British band Babylon Zoo’s Spaceman in 1996.

Meanwhile, SOUR continues to be a powerhouse on streaming, with 91% of its chart sales this week coming from streams.


‘Good 4 U’ by Olivia Rodrigo takes out the #1 spot on the ARIA Singles Chart for a fifth straight week. The track is one week away from equaling the run at #1 by Rodrigo’s debut single, ‘Drivers License’ (#1 Jan. ’21).

Olivia Rodrigo makes it five consecutive weeks at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart with SOUR. The last artist to spend five or more weeks at #1 on both the Albums and Singles charts was Ed Sheeran, who spent five straight weeks at #1 in March/April 2017 with ÷ and ‘Shape Of You’, respectively.
