OLIVIA RODRIGO PAYS MILLIONS IN ROYALTIES TO TAYLOR SWIFT & PARAMORE AMID ‘COPYING’ DRAMA

WHAT HAPPENED?

After many people pointed out the large similarities between her song ‘Good 4 U’ and Paramore’s ‘Misery Business,’ some accused the star of ‘copying,’ leading to her giving them songwriting credit.

She also did this with Taylor Swift, Jack Antonoff, and St. Vincent for the song ‘Deja Vu.’

Now, a report from Billboard has claimed that the young star has given up millions in royalties due to adding these songwriting credits.

The report claimed that Paramore’s Hayley Williams and Joshua Farro could be receiving somewhere around $1.2 million.

As for Swift, Billboard predicts that she’s earned around $325,678 in royalties from ‘Deja Vu,’ with Antonoff estimated to be taking $260,542.

Despite the drama surrounding ‘copying’ claims, Rodrigo is certainly still doing very well career-wise.
