    Olivia Rodrigo released ‘Vampire‘ this June and described in cruel detail how an older ex-boyfriend mistreated her and took advantage of her. The lead single from Rodrigo’s upcoming sophomore album ‘Guts‘, a rock opera-inspired song, looks back at the pop star’s relationship with a person she describes as a “bloodsucker, fame f-ker,” who “sold [her] for parts.” In the lyrics, she also makes references to the age difference: “Went for me and not her/Cause girls your age know better”, and the span of the relationship: “Six months of torture you sold as some forbidden paradise”.

In its first week, the song generated 35.5 million streams, 26.3 million radio airplay audience views, and 26,000 sales (17,000 sales on 7″ vinyl, which cost $10, and CD, which sold for $3.50), in addition to 9,000 digital downloads.
