The 20-year-old shot to stardom with her Grammy-winning debut album, SOUR, in 2021, setting ultra-high expectations for her 2023 follow-up.

Thankfully, GUTS lived up to (and might have even exceeded) fans' hopes with devastatingly beautiful ballads like making the bed and logical, unapologetic cries of teenage rage like all-american bitch, and scathing break-up anthems like vampire and get him back.

Since dropping on Friday, the album has earned glowing praise from music critics and fans alike.

As for the fans, Livvies haven't been holding back as they share their emotional reactions to Rodrigo's new release.
