Olivia Rodrigo is taking no prisoners in the new Petra Collins-directed music video for her latest single, “Bad Idea Right?” In the guitar-heavy track, she speaks-sings sassy lyrics about wanting to see a former flame despite knowing that it may not be the best idea—but still going ahead with it anyway.
The grainy ’90s-inspired video sees Rodrigo at a house party with her real-life best friends Tate McRae, Iris Apatow and Madison Hu as they all congregate in the bathroom. Rodrigo receives advice from random attendees that seeing her ex might be a bad idea, but these warnings are thrown aside as she embarks an adventurous journey to his place, involving a hitchhiking ride on the back of a truck and a slushie being splashed over her on public transit.
Conveyed through rising synth and retro guitar licks, Rodrigo’s declaration of unapologetic independence shines through in defiance: “Fuck it, it’s fine.” Will Rodrigo’s intuition be right? Find out by watching the full “Bad Idea Right?” video now.
Pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo has wowed fans once again with the surprise release of her latest single “Bad Idea Right?” and accompanying music video. After teasing her fans on social media with a glimpse of the sultry cover art – featuring a fuzzy shot of Rodrigo in red lipstick – Rodrigo dropped the infectious track late on Thursday night.
Riding high off the success of its predecessor, “Vampire”, which skyrocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, “Bad Idea Right?” is the second single from Rodrigo’s upcoming sophomore album “Guts” due out Sept 8 on Geffen Records. This makes Rodrigo the youngest artist to have three consecutive No. 1 hits on the chart – an impressive feat for any musician, much less someone so young.

Olivia Rodrigo is about to take listeners on an emotional journey with her highly anticipated sophomore album, “Guts.” Scheduled to be released in early 2021, “Guts” marks Rodrigo’s follow-up to her 2021 debut “Sour,” which was produced by Dan Nigro.
The 12 tracks contained within “Guts” will tackle the “growing pains” that Rodrigo has faced since becoming one of the biggest names in music after her breakout track “Drivers License.” In a cover story with Variety back in August 2021, Rodrigo opened up about the courage it takes for her to be so candid about her feelings and emotions.
Rodrigo declared, “It’s really empowering when it comes out, and it’s been really awesome for me to see people resonate with that vulnerability and relate to it.” With this project she hopes to further inspire others to be unafraid of sharing their experiences and speak their truth. It makes us all the more excited to hear what passionate pieces she has put together in this upcoming album that is sure to shake the world!
