"Traitor" by Olivia Rodrigo is a melodramatic anthem for the scorned lover. It's like a spicy soap opera in song form, where our heroine realizes her beau has been playing footsie with another lady while they were still an item. The lyrics are dripping with betrayal and heartache as she accuses him of being a traitor, even if he didn't technically cheat. She's not buying his "we're just friends" line and calls him out on his quick rebound. The song is a bitter cocktail of regret and resentment, served with a side of 'I told you so'. It's clear that she loved him at his worst, but he couldn't return the favor. In the end, she wishes he'd thought things through before making her fall for him. A classic tale of love gone sour!
