Olivia Rodrigo’s music videos never disappoint, and she took things to a whole new level with her latest single “Obsessed”. The Grammy winner’s new visual shows her transforming into an edgy pageant queen to attend a ballroom party with her boyfriend’s exes.

The lyrics of Rodrigo’s latest single perfectly capture the destructive need to know more about your partner’s dating history. “I know her star sign, I know her blood type,” she sings before delivering the song’s explosive chorus, and what we see on screen perfectly captures her all-consuming feeling of jealousy.

Rodrigo is the only girl wearing black in the room of pageant queens attending a ballroom party for girls who all once dated the same guy. They all wear sashes that reflect their history together, ranging from “Miss Thought She Was the One” to “Miss Mom’s Favorite”.

“Obsessed” was released as the lead single from Guts (Spilled), which also features songs “Scared of My Guitar”, “Stranger”, “Girl I’ve Always Been”, and “So American”. They were previously featured on some vinyl editions of Rodrigo’s sophomore studio album before its deluxe edition hit the shelves on March 22.

The original edition of Guts also produced hit singles “Vampire”, “Bad Idea Right?”, and “Get Him Back”, and Rodrigo is promoting it with a tour across North America and Europe this spring and summer.
