Pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo has added members of pop-rock band Paramore to the writing credits of her viral song good 4 u.
The band’s vocalist Hayley Williams and former guitarist Josh Farro are now credited as co-writers of the song, which is taken from Rodrigo’s debut album ‘SOUR’.
This wasn’t the first time that similarity between good 4 u and Paramore’s 2007 hit Misery Business had been mentioned, with some fans even making mash-ups of the two songs and sharing them on platforms like YouTube and TikTok.

The production credits of good 4 u have recently been updated to include Hayley Williams and Josh Farro as co-writers, since the track is an interpolation of Misery Business. This was first revealed by Paramore’s Music Publishing Company Warner Chappell Music, who posted on Instagram celebrating good 4 u reaching Number 1 in the US charts with the caption “Huge shoutout to our writers Hayley Williams and Joshua Farro”.
Rodrigo also credited Taylor Swift on fellow ‘SOUR’ track 1 step forward, 3 steps back, due to an interpolation of the melody of Swift’s 2017 track New Year’s Day, which appeared on her album ‘reputation’.
‘SOUR’ is one of the biggest-selling albums of 2021 so far, with good 4 u being crowned the longest-reigning rock-influenced Number 1 single in the UK for 18 years.
