Joshua Bassett Trends Because of Olivia Rodrigo's 'Traitor' Lyrics - Read What Fans Are Tweeting!

Olivia Rodrigo‘s new album Sour was just released and unsurprisingly, Joshua Bassett is now a trending topic on Twitter.

Fans have been speculating that Olivia‘s music is about Joshua ever since the release of her song “Driver’s License” back in January.

For those who don’t know, Olivia and Joshua play a couple on the Disney+ series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and it has been rumored they were also in a real-life relationship. After their reported split, he began dating fellow Disney actress Sabrina Carpenter.

There are several songs on Sour that fans believe to be about Joshua, but the one that is getting the most attention is called “Traitor.”

Click inside to read about the song and read all of the reactions…

“And ain’t it funny how you ran to her / The second that we called it quits? / And ain’t it funny how you said you were friends? / Now it sure as hell don’t look like it,” Olivia sings in the pre-chorus of the song.

The lyrics to the “Traitor” chorus continue to paint a picture that is making fans think she’s singing about Joshua.

“You talked to her when we were together / Loved you at your worst but that didn’t matter / It took you two weeks to go off and date her / Guess you didn’t cheat, but you’re still a traitor,” she sings.

Fans are comparing the situation to when Taylor Swift wrote about her exes John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal in her songs.

While some fans are saying that Joshua should go into hiding after the release of the album, others are defending him and telling fans to not bring him into the situation.
