Just last week, Rodrigo performed her single ‘good 4 u’ at the MTV Video Music Awards ceremony, backed by a troupe of choreographed dancers. She took home awards in three of the five categories she was nominated for, winning Best New Artist, Song of the Year for ‘drivers license’ and Push Performance of the Year.

Rodrigo released her debut album ‘SOUR’ back in May, with NME giving the record four stars in its review.

“For the most part, Rodrigo has passed the bar she set on that single, sharing with us an almost-masterpiece that’s equal parts confident, cool and exhilaratingly real,” the review read.

“This is no flash-in-the-pan artist, but one we’ll be living with for years to come.”
