Olivia Rodrigo and Conan Gray are taking over the music scene one hit at a time, but we're equally obsessed with their cute friendship.

Interestingly enough, the two pop stars first connected through music. In addition to sharing the same producer Dan Nigro, they also share a love of Taylor Swift's music.

After publicly gushing about the "Cardigan" singer during various interviews and performances, Swift enlisted Rodrigo and Gray to promote her rerecorded Fearless album in April 2021.

Since then, the duo has given us various peeks of their sweet bond, including going to Halloween parties together, supporting each other's music, and hanging out at award shows like the 2021 American Music Awards.

"We're just pals and I think he's so brilliant," Rodrigo told Captial FM of her friendship with Gray.

Gray shared similar sentiments during an interview on Hits 1 LA with Tony Fly and Symon, saying, "She's just the best. I love her so much. We have tons of fun together. She reminds me a lot of my little sister. We very much are siblings in every single way I could think of."

In honor of their cute friendship, see more photos of them hanging out ahead.
