Has Olivia Rodrigo recorded a new single for The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes? All signs point to yes.
Fans of The Hunger Games will already know that some pretty legendary artists have recorded music for the franchise. Over the course of the original four movies, stars including the likes of Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and Lorde all made songs for the films. Jennifer Lawrence even reached Number 12 on the Hot 100 with Katniss' rendition of 'The Hanging Tree'.
Now, a new Hunger Games era is upon us and Rachel Zegler appears to have confirmed that Olivia Rodrigo has recorded the lead single for The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes soundtrack. It also looks like Olivia has released a snippet of it.
Watch the trailer for The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
Yesterday (Oct 31), Olivia's official fan page tweeted a phone emoji. Another fan account then tweeted the number "+1 (323) 622-7687" alongside emojis of clouds, a dove and an anatomical heart. If you call the phone number, a snippet of a brand new unreleased Olivia song plays. You can't hear Olivia sing but the production sounds moody and mysterious.
At first, fans wondered if Olivia was teasing an upcoming Guts deluxe album but the emojis seem to tie in with The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes. The dove could be a reference to songbirds and Viola Davis' new character Dr. Volumnia Gaul stores organs and dead animals in her laboratory.
To top it all off, Rachel Zegler, who plays the lead character of Lucy Gray in The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes, has liked the tweet of Olivia's number and Lionsgate have followed Olivia on Twitter.
Reacting, one fan tweeted: "Olivia Rodrigo being the New Hunger Games soundtrack girlie is like her cementing herself as the new supreme."
