All through the album Rodrigo sings tales about getting her driver’s license, being over life as a teen, and coping with younger love and heartbreak. Her phrases and experiences might converse on to her fellow members of Gen Z, however her lyrics shot a complete bunch of millennials by the guts, too.

We’ve insecurities, we get our egos crushed, we’re drained as hell, we take into consideration quitting our jobs and beginning new lives, and a few of us undoubtedly nonetheless do not know methods to parallel park.
Rodrigo’s bigger themes of heartbreak and betrayal are tremendous common, however even when they weren’t, you are allowed to love good music at any age!
