• "Brutal" is the first track from Olivia Rodrigo's debut album SOUR.
• Written when she was 17 years old, this grungy rock song finds Olivia Rodrigo expressing her feelings about the brutal world of adolescence.
• Rodrigo explained the album title to Apple Music: "I sort of wrote it about this like period of time where I felt like everything that I had that was really awesome and good in my life went really sour like I was super insecure and going through this awful heartbreak stuff like that. So, that's why it's called Sour. Also, it has my initials in it - 'OR' - which I think is a fun added perk."
• "Brutal" debuted at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 during the chart week of May 31, 2021.
