Disney’s Olivia Rodrigo is breaking all kinds of records. The High School Musical: The Musical singer, 17, dropped her debut track “Drivers License” and has since surpassed Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’ with the biggest single-day stream.
The track’s been trending #1 on all the charts since it came out, but it’s the rawness and authenticity of the lyrics that seem to be striking a chord with people — as well as the drama that comes with the hit.
Rodrigo stars in Disney’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series alongside her now ex-boyfriend and love interest in the show Joshua Bassett. Fans have since put together that Bassett, who taught Olivia how to drive, has since moved on with Sabrina Carpenter and there’s a lyric in the track where Olivia sings about “a blonde girl who’s so much older.”
To add to the drama, Joshua also has a single coming out titled “Lie Lie Lie.”
As Tanya Rad shared on-air, Olivia’s lyrics aren’t for the faint of heart. The lyrics cut deep no matter what type of breakup you are going through.
