I could not be more proud of the young girl I discovered shortly after I saw her playing the piano live and singing on YouTube. I imagined that this could one day be my daughter and was awestruck at the talent and confidence shown by such a young lady. At just 17 years old I instantly declared she would be future superstar. This was not the first time I had made such a proclamation. In 2013 while working for a friend on the Taylor Swift Red Tour, I found myself driving a van carrying a young Ed Sheeran around. Ed was opening for Taylor on that tour and he was not a very well-known name. After watching him perform and chatting with him for a bit I made the proclamation: future superstar. We now have the benefit of hindsight to see that not only is Ed a superstar but he is an award-winning immense talent who is continuing to put out new and even divisive music!
Olivia is going to have a tough time following up her own debut album, Sour, in which she basically rips apart the young boy who cheated on her and broke her heart. I have heard many of rap battles throughout the years but I don’t even think that the goat, Eminem, would want to piss off a 16 year old girl like Olivia.
