Like many other singers and songwriters, the inspiration behind most of Olivia’s songs is her own life experiences. However, Hope Ur Ok is one of the most unique tracks on her new album. The reason being that the song hasn’t been written from her perspective. Here’s why! According to Genius, Olivia has written this song along with songwriter Dan Nigro. Dan has co-written most of the other tracks in the album, such hope ur ok Brutal, Traitor, Driver’s License and etc. The 18-year-old is not singing about her life and experiences at all.

Speaking to MET107, the singer said, Hope Ur Ok is written from the perspective of her friends. She explained that the song is based on stories of pain, struggle and survival that she had accumulated while talking to her friends. Hence she hasn’t met any of the people she sings about in the song, in real life.

However, a lot of her fans who are now calling themselves, “Livies” have a theory suggesting that Sour is about the seven stages of grief. According to Healthline, these seven stages are: • Shock and denial • Pain and guilt • Anger and bargaining • Depression • The upward turn • Reconstruction and working through • Acceptance and hope Fans believe that Hope Ur Ok lyrics represent the final stage of grief, that is acceptance.

The lyrics of the song are quite suggestive too. The line such as, “Does she know how proud I am she was created?/ With the courage to unlearn all of hope ur ok hatred?” hints at a person suffering a traumatic and hate-filled past. The song also wishes all the people it refers to a very bright future. In other news, Where is the Mean Girls cast now?

Since Olivia Rodrigo's debut album, SOUR, dropped at midnight, I have not stopped listening to the album and analyzing its lyrics.

A lot of Olivia's fans — who have deemed themselves "Livies" — have theories that the album is about more than just a breakup. They believe that it showcases a progression of the seven stages of grief: • Shock and denial • Pain and guilt • Anger and bargaining • Depression • The upward turn • Reconstruction • Acceptance and hope "Hope Ur Ok" is the final track on SOUR, which would most likely represent the final stage of grief: acceptance.

Olivia first teased some lyrics to the song during a game of 17 Questions, saying that they're some of her favorite she's ever written. "'I hope he took his bad deal and made a royal flush." I really like that lyric, it's one of my faves. I think that song is really beautiful, too, as the last track on the album," Olivia told Seventeen. Related Story • 17 Questions With Olivia Rodrigo According to Pitchfork's official review of the album, "Hope Ur Ok" is a hopeful anthem directed toward outcasts.

"Over a twinkly instrumental, [Olivia] sings directly to a victim of child abuse, a queer girl rejected by her family, and to outcasts more broadly," said the review.

Though the lyrics could tie into acceptance, it rings positivity to those who have faced hardships in their own lives, and Olivia is merely the messenger with a beacon of hope. Let's look further into these lyrics to see what they're about.

[Verse 1] I knew a boy once when I was small A towhead blond with eyes of salt He played the drum in the marching band His parents cared more about the Bible Than being good to their own child He wore long sleeves 'cause of hope ur ok dad And somehow we fell out of touch Hope he took his bad deal and made a royal flush Don't know if I'll see you again someday But if you're out there, I hope that you're hope ur ok "['Hope Ur Ok,'] is written from the perspective of my friends.

I don’t actually know some of the people that I talk about in the song. But there are stories [in it] that I had accumulated from different friends, so stuff like that I do all the time," Olivia said in an interview with MET107. In the first verse, Olivia describes a situation where someone with a religious upbringing faced discrimination from his own parents. The line "he wore long sleeves 'cause of his dad" alludes to the subject's father potentially abusing him.

According to Genius, a royal flush is the rarest and strongest hand possible in a game of Poker. Olivia’s metaphorical comparison reflects her hope that he has overcome the hardship he faced at the hands of his unaccepting family. [Verse 2] My middle school friend grew up alone She raised her brothers on hеr own Her parents hated who shе loved She couldn't wait to go to college She was tired, 'cause she was brought into a world Where family was merely blood Does she know how proud I am she was created?

With the courage to unlearn all of their hatred? We don't talk much, but I just gotta say I miss you, and I hope that you're okay "Her parents hated who she loved" could allude to hope ur ok second subject's queerness, which seems to be unacceptable for her parents' standards. "She was brought into a world / where family was merely blood" also ties back to the LGBTQ+ community, where the concept of having a "chosen family" is common because of the discrimination many face within their own bloodline.

Toward the end of the verse, Olivia expresses her love and support for the subject although they don't speak much anymore.

{INSERTKEYS} [Bridge] Address the letters to the holes in my butterfly wings Nothing's forever, nothing's as good as it seems And when the clouds won't iron out And the monsters creep into your house Every door is hard to close Here, Olivia brings back the message of hope and acceptance, saying that "nothing's forever" and that there's light at the end of the tunnel.

She even describes how some victims of abuse find it difficult to come out on the other side when she says "every door is hard to close." [Outro] Well, I hope you know how proud I am you were created With the courage to unlearn all of their hatred But, God, I hope that you're happier today 'Cause I love you And I hope that you're okay The outro of the song includes a sweet message about Olivia being proud of the subjects for "unlearning...hatred" and moving on from their past hardships.

I don’t actually know some of the people that I talk about in the song. But there are stories [in it] that I had accumulated from different friends, so stuff like that I do all the time. “hope ur ok” is … a super special song to me and I love the stories it tells. I wrote most of it in my living room in early 2020, drawing inspiration from some of my favorite country and folk artists. I think my favorite lines I’ve ever written are “Hope he took his bad deal and made a royal flush” and “Hope you know how proud I am you were created with the courage to unlearn all of their hatred.” I had so much fun making it and I hope it gives optimism to someone out there just like it did for me.

The two songs which Olivia Rodrigo respectively released to launch her musical career, 2021’s “ Drivers License” and “ Deja Vu“, were a bit misleading.

And that’s because they gave us the impression that when she did get around to dropping an entire album, it would consist primarily of tracks related to teenage love triangles and things of the such. {/INSERTKEYS}

hope ur ok

But now, having dove a few tracks deeper into her “Sour” album, it has become obvious that we are dealing with an artist with a grander mission. And part of that cause would be serving as a voice for the disenfranchised of her generation.

Hope Ur OK And the above brings us to “Hope Ur OK” – a song whose tale is based on people she personally knows or know of. In the first verse hope ur ok is a boy who, narratively speaking, she was once associated with.

hope ur ok

As implied, this boy was the victim of parental abuse. Of which variety(ies) it is not specified, but what is revealed is that his parents were the self-righteous types, as in being more concerned with appearing good than being good. And unfortunately, this was a “bad deal” that he personally had to contend with.

The songstress has “(fallen) out of touch” with him as time progressed. But she is still hoping that he was able to make the best out of a challenging situation.

The second verse is then about a young lady who grew up in a family where “hatred” was the order of the day. Due to that reality in conjunction with being burdened with adult responsibilities as hope ur ok child, she longed for the days when she would “go to college” – as in get out of the house – and apparently has achieved that goal.

So now Olivia is wondering how she too has developed. That is to say that even though she has more or less lost contact with this person, the vocalist is still ‘hoping that she’s okay’. Song’s Thesis Aspiration The bridge of the song then gets metaphorical to the point where it can even hope ur ok a rock star blush. But the outro does a good job of bringing home what can actually be deemed as the thesis aspiration of this song, even beyond the singer’s sentiment of concern for these people.

And that is her attempt to imbue love upon them – raise their self-esteem, so to speak. In other words, the songstress views the aforementioned individuals as being less-emotionally fortunate than herself.

So her response is to buttress them where she perceives this lack, which is in relation to their own self-image.

And she does so by expressing love for them on top of general appreciation for their existence. So conclusively, it’s like you have to admire the effort. Because as implied earlier, most teenage singers tend to harp on romantic themes or issues concerning their own personal emo struggles.

But here we have someone who is rather genuinely concerned with how troubled individuals she has crossed paths with earlier in life – who she no longer has meaningful relationships with per se – are doing in the here and now.

Facts about “Hope Ur OK” Composition-wise this is yet another collaboration between Olivia Rodrigo and Dan Nigro, with the latter serving as the track’s producer. This is the 11 th and final song on the playlist of “Sour”, Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album. Both “Hope Ur OK” and “Sour” came out on 21 May 2021. As of the writing of this post just a couple of days thereafter, it’s too early to report how this undertaking has fared out amongst the wolves.

But judging by the success of Rodrigo’s first single, “Drivers License”, which thus far as being one of the biggest hits of the year, we have to believe that it will prove to be a success. And helping the effort is the fact that it is also backed by a couple of major labels, those being Interscope Records and Geffen Records. Olivia Rodrigo Meanwhile Olivia Rodrigo, being just 18 and a few months’ old at hope ur ok time, sort of popped out of nowhere.

Before the virality of “Drivers License”, the only people who would have really been familiar with her were teenish Disney fans. And why? Simply because throughout the last few years, she has appeared on a couple of those types of Disney shows (“Bizaardark” and “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”). And whereas being down with Disney in such a capacity did of course require her to sing, it’s safe to say that hope ur ok no one, not even as of December 2019, was expecting Rodrigo to blow up as she has.

For instance she has already made the Time 100 Next list for 2021, being officially recognized as a ‘Phenom’ in that regard.

Moreover on 15 May 2021 she was granted the opportunity to grace the stage of Saturday Night Live, a venue usually reserved for more-seasoned musicians (even though, as alluded to earlier, she isn’t technically a new jack in the game).
