According to a series of TikToks posted over the past week, fans believe that Olivia might soon drop a follow-up album called Sweet that will be the flip-side of Sour. The theory caught traction when user @codyjohnathan explained that because Olivia has teased so many love songs over the past year — and with Sour being all about heartbreak — there might be another whole album (a love-struck one) waiting to be dropped.
Tiktok user @gabbybender expanded on this, bringing to light some interesting easter eggs that might just prove the theory to be true. Sour is a very short album, just surpassing 30 minutes in length, making fans wonder if there's more stories to tell. Additionally, Olivia collaborated with Sour Patch Kids for the album release, and what is printed on every box? "Sour then sweet," with sweet emphasized in red. And lastly, a look at Olivia's Genius page shows a plethora of unreleased songs, many of which discuss love and romance.
Who would be wild enough to release two full albums within a short period of time? Taylor Swift, of course, who just so happens to be Olivia's #1 inspiration. Olivia has taken many cues from Taylor before, using her easter egg methods to promote Sour and its lead singles over the past five months.
As for the fans, they are pretty convinced. One Olivia theorist tweeted, "Olivia Rodrigo is absolutely releasing a second album soon. 1) sour is short. really short. 2) the vast majority of songs are 'sour' themed; they're about heartbreak, angst, pain, etc. (sour) none are about happiness, joy, love (sweet)." Another said, "if Olivia Rodrigo really pulls a Taylor swift and drops an album called Sweet after releasing Sour.....i won’t cope."
Others have gone so far as to dig deeeeeep for clues, like this one Twitter user, who wrote, "the house number is 1785, if you add that together you get 21. there are 6 girls on the roof, therefore olivia rodrigo’s album SWEET will drop june 21st." This is Swiftie-level recon, TBQH.
Of course, Olivia has provided no comment on the matter, so it's now a waiting game for us all. But if Sour was any indication, any follow-up album—at any time—will certainly blow our minds.
