Camila Cabello is just one of many celebrities who consider themselves an Olivia Rodrigo fan, so much so that she took to BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge on Tuesday (Sept. 7) to cover Rodrigo’s Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping single “Good 4 U” during her set.

Just before performing the track, Cabello shared just how much she enjoys Rodrigo’s music, which is why she selected “Good 4 U” as one of the covers for the set.  “[I’m] So excited to perform this. I love that song,” Cabello explained. “I think she’s a really amazing artist and I love so many of the songs that she’s released, so yeah I’m happy to do this song in a new way. We were really inspired by, obviously, Latin music and making it kind of like a cumbia version.”

“I feel like she’s such an incredible vocalist, Cabello continued. “This song was a challenging song to practice. It’s really high and demands a lot of breath, and I was excited to do it because I like her punk rock vibe.”

This isn’t the first time that Cabello has gushed over Rodrigo’s talent. In May, the “Havana” singer shared on her Instagram Stories that she was listening to Sour, and wrote a message to Rodrigo. “This album is truly gorgeous. So honest, so vulnerable! I’m inspired @oliviarodrigo, ” she wrote. “This one [‘Jealousy, Jealousy’] and ‘Favorite Crime’ are my favorites.”

In addition to covering “Good 4 U,” Cabello performed her new song, “Don’t Go Yet,” from her upcoming third album, Familia, during her BBC 1 set.
