Olivia Rodrigo’s Vampire: Who does it refer to?

Olivia Rodrigo’s new musical era has officially begun, and it’s darker, grungier, and more distinctive than her previous record. While the pop star’s fans adore the new song, they have also observed that the lyrics make reference to a boyfriend who was older than her and cheated on her. Netizens speculate that the two names the song may be disparaging are Adam Faze and Zack Bia.

After promoting the song and her album Guts on June 13, Rodrigo released her brand-new track Vampire on June 30, 2023. To tease the release of the new single, the singer uploaded a black-and-white image of its cover art.

Dark lipstick, winged eyeliner, and two purple bandages covering a vampire fang wound were all worn by the vocalist. Petra Collins, who also directed the music video for Good 4 U, a popular song from the Grammy Award-winning songwriter’s sensational debut album Sour, directed the music video for Vampire.

The lyrics of Rodrigo’s song read, “Hate to give the satisfaction askin’ how you’re doing now / How’s the castle built off people you pretend to care about?” The song further says, “I see the parties and the diamonds sometimes when I close my eyes / Six months of torture that you sold as some forbidden paradise.” Vampire continues, “The way you sold me for parts / As you sunk your teeth into me, oh / Bloodsucker, famefucker / Bleeding me dry like a goddamn vampire.” Rodrigo sings the guy is a convincing liar and does so without flinching.

The lyrics further add, “Went for me and not her / Cause girls your age know better” and continue, “You can’t love anyone / Cause that would mean you had a heart.” Essentially, Rodrigo’s song is about an older ex-boyfriend who exploited her for popularity.

Fans are speculating despite the fact that she hasn’t said who it’s about. The two candidates that fans believe Vampire could be referring to are Adam Faze and Zack Bia. When Rodrigo was 18 years old two years ago, she was seen with producer Adam Faze, who was 24 at the time.

The producer Zack Bia and the singer were reportedly dating at the time. She was 19 and he was 26. One user tweeted, “thats crazy that olivia rodrigo and adam faze were ‘confirmed’ official on june 29th 2 years ago at the space jam event at universal and she released vampire today on JUNE 29TH.” Another said, “can’t tell whether vampire is about adam faze or zack bia cause they were both way older than her and both creepy.

A third wrote, “olivia is dissing zack bia in vampire cause she just turned 18 when they started dating omg.

A fourth commented, “not olivia rodrigo and madison beer dropping songs about being traumatized by the same guy. keep zack bia away from these girls!!!” referring to Beer’s song Selfish which is also rumored to be about Zack Bia. A fourth made the same reference and joked, “day 9272919 of zack bia inspiring the best heartbreak music.”
