"Drivers License" by Olivia Rodrigo, a 17-year-old Disney actor who most recently starred in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, has broken Spotify records for the most streamed song in a day.
"Drivers License" hurtled to No. 1 on the Spotify charts in just one week of its release. On Tuesday, it was streamed over 17 million times, the most for a song in a single day ever, a Spotify representative confirmed to BuzzFeed News.
The song is a melodramatic pop ballad about the liberation of getting a driver s license so that the protagonist can see their partner on their own terms only to have that dream crushed by their breakup. "Yeah, you said forever / Now I drive alone past your street," Rodrigo croons. The tunes crescendo, in particular, painfully transports the listener to the drama of life, love, and heartbreak in high school.
Amid the chaos of the current moment, the song gives young people and, hey, even adults permission to retreat to just worrying about clichd teen drama.
The song is now one of the top trending sounds on TikTok, which also helps its popularity grow and grow. The more Rodrigo and others have promoted the song on the app, the more it has compelled people to listen to the full song on Spotify. As more people listen, others continue to post about it on TikTok and platforms like Twitter and Instagram. And on and on.
Right now, TikTok is rife with jokes about both the gossip and the obsession surrounding the song. (Adding to its popularity are rumors that it is about Rodrigo s real-life love triangle with her former High School Musical costar.) People online are commenting on the enormity of the hit.
