Olivia O’Brien, the 19 year old LA based singer and songwriter named one of “100 Women Revolutionizing Pop Music” by Paper Magazine, who most recently released her new single “Love Myself” from her spring debut album unveils the remarkable visuals for the powerful anthem. The Wayne Ishman directed music video for the personally frank and honestly graphic ode to self-discovery and self-love is just in time for Valentine’s Day. Ishman has previously directed music videos such as Aaliyah’s “Try Again,” *NSYNC’s “Bye, Bye, Bye,” and Britney Spears’ “Piece of Me”. Destined to leave its stamp as one of Olivia’s most groundbreaking visuals, the plot shows Olivia reflecting on her evolution as a young woman who is also candid about her current struggles. Her past few releases, which set her over a billion streams, have clearly shown the direction of Olivia’s ever-promising career trajectory.
The arrival of the majestic new single “Love Myself” sets the stage for Olivia’s Was It Even Real Tour featuring Kevin George opening March 31st in Salt Lake City. The 19-city tour – with several dates already sold-out – will wrap up on April 25th at The New Parish in Oakland, CA. This marks Olivia’s first major tour schedule since her 20-city trip with duo Jack & Jack in fall 2017, in support of her EP, It’s Not That Deep (released November 2017).
After gaining massive success with the release of “i hate u i love u,” her RIAA triple-platinum, self-composed smash collaboration with gnash, Olivia set out to prove that she is indeed a rising pop star to be reckoned with.
