You go, girl! Olivia Rodrigo took home the Best New Artist award at the 2022 Grammy Awards, which aired on Sunday, April 3.
The singer was up against Arooj Aftab, Jimmie Allen, Baby Keem, FINNEAS, Glass Animals, Japanese Breakfast, The Kid LAROI, Arlo Parks and Saweetie.
"Thank you so much to the Recording Academy, this is my biggest dream come true — thank you so much. Thank you to everyone at Interscope Records for believing in me and my songwriting before anything else," the 19-year-old stated. "Thank you to my amazing parents and best friends and a huge thanks to Dan, who made all of my music with me. Dan, you're the best collaborator I could ask for. This is all because of you, so thank you."
The brunette beauty had a great year, as she received seven nominations including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist.
After she received the news, she took to Instagram to gush over how far she's come.
"When I was younger, my family lived a few blocks from the staples center, where the Grammys took place every year. I would always walk outside the arena and look at the plaques on the ground with all the winners names in wide eyed wonder..." she wrote. "Many dreams have come true for me this year but this one is probably the most meaningful. thank you to everyone who has believed in me and supported the songs I write. and thank you to @recordingacademy for the recognition. I’m beyond humbled. truly a day I will never forget. so grateful aghhh❤️💜❤️💜."
Recently, Rodrigo released her new flick Driving Home 2 U, which takes viewers behind-the-scenes of her writing process.
“Obviously, the songs from Sour completely have taken on a whole new meaning and they kind of have a life of their own now, which I think is just a natural thing that happens when you put out music,” Rodrigo said. “But it was really cool to go back and revisit the songs when they were just seeds of an idea, and they hadn’t become what they are today. [It] just kind of reminded me about the magic that songwriting is.”
