As they were starting to take flight at the format, Olivia Rodrigo’s previous singles “drivers license,” “deja vu,” and “good 4 u” all received stellar listener callout scores. Current single “traitor” is doing the same. The latest Mediabase/Critical Mass Media report reveals a favorable audience reaction to the fourth “SOUR” single.

Per the report, which is based on a survey of listeners, “traitor” boasts a positive score from 67.8%, a negative score from 19.7%, and thus a “net positive” score of 48.1%. It is also receiving a “favorite” rating from 25.6%.

Of the fifteen songs featured in this week’s report, “traitor” boasts the #1 positive score, the #6 (sixth-lowest) negative score, the #2 net positive score, and #6 favorite rating. Although the numbers are not as spectacular as they were for “good 4 u” when it first appeared in the callout report, they are all strong – and reflect ongoing interest in the year’s biggest breakout artist.

“traitor” currently holds a Top 20 position on the Mediabase pop airplay chart.
