Hayley Williams is finally credited as one of the songwriters for ‘Good 4 I’ll from Rodrigo’s debut album ‘Sour’!
Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album Sour has reached the pinnacle of success ever since its release. Olivia is the new Gen-Z pop queen. The album consists of everything between bold and beautiful.
Rodrigo opened that she got a little help from Taylor Swift, Jack Antonoff, and St. Vincent on the credits. However, many fans claim that there seemed to be one credit missing from the record. After noticing similarities between “Good 4 U” and Paramore’s 2007 hit “Misery Business,” they questioned why the band’s vocalist, Hayley Williams, didn’t receive a credit. Well, she seemed to have the same question.
After months of discussion about the similarities between the two songs, William finally did get a credit on Sour in late August. She and her bandmate Josh Farro are currently credited as writers on “Good 4 u “ though they weren’t listed upon the song’s initial release.
“Okay it’s crazy how good 4 u by olivia rodrigo sounds similar to misery business by paramore,” one fan tweeted in June.
