Olivia Rodrigo has released her latest “The Rose Song,” a beautiful, empowering ballad which was written and performed by Olivia herself. The track was featured in the latest episode of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” available now on Disney+.
When Olivia’s character Nini decides to leave the Youth Actors Conservatory and come back to East High, the roles for “Beauty and the Beast” have already been cast. Nini ultimately gets cast in a new role, “the Rose,” and is supposed to write a song for the Beast (Ricky) and the Rose to sing together. She ends up writing “The Rose Song” as a solo number about the importance of finding value in yourself and not just how others/boys value you.
The single was released by Walt Disney Records and is available on streaming platforms by click here.
