Olivia Rodrigo, a 17-year-old actress and singer from Temecula, California, released her hit single “Drivers License” on January 8th.
Rodrigo began her career playing a variety of roles in commercials and television shows but ultimately revealed her melodious talents in the Disney series “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.”
“Drivers License” is a lyrical triumph recalling a recent memory of Olivia’s when she got her driver’s license but expected to have shared that milestone with someone she loves. Instead, she ventured on her lonesome, driving through the suburbs while simultaneously reminiscing on a past relationship that left her head spinning with self-doubt. The track is accompanied by piano, harmonizing vocals, and a soothing rhythm. Rodrigo has an effortless range and continues to exhibit her aptitude throughout her career.
Along with accumulating record-breaking streams within its first week, the track debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
