The 20-year-old singer has been on a hot performance streak in recent days, swinging by the likes of Jingle Ball, Saturday Night Live, and The Tonight Show.

On Monday, she brought her talents to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where she swapped her usual GUTS tracks for Can't Catch Me Now.

The song was released last month as part of the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes, the movie adaptation of the series' 2020 prequel novel.

For its late-night debut, Olivia wore a white satin and lace gown and performed alongside a crew of backup singers.

The song pulled inspiration from the character of Lucy Gray Baird (played by Rachel Zegler), with Olivia penning the track herself with producer Dan Nigro.

The traitor artist recently shared that writing from the perspective of the fictional heroine was "a real fun challenge" and a significant departure from her usual autographical work.

Ahead of her Colbert performance, Olivia's latest Tiny Desk concert was released online, featuring acoustic renditions of love is embarrassing, lacy, vampire, making the bed.
