DISNEY actress-turned-singer Olivia Rodrigo has dropped a new single, Driver's License, which has skyrocketed to the number one spot on Apple Music's Top 100 Global list.

Curious fans of the 17-year-old's debut track are now trying to decipher the meaning behind her song lyrics.

When did Olivia Rodrigo release Drivers License?

Olivia Rodrigo released Driver's License on January 8, 2021.

The song was released on all major music platforms included Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, and Google Play.

Interscope Records and Geffen Records released the track as the lead single to Rodrigo's untitled debut EP, which doesn't have a release date yet.


What are the lyrics to Driver's License?

"I got my driver's license last week
Just like we always talked about
'Cause you were so excited for me
To finally drive up to your house
But today I drove through the suburbs
Crying 'cause you weren't around

And you're probably with that blonde girl
Who always made me doubt
She's so much older than me
She's everything I'm insecure about
Yeah, today I drove through the suburbs
'Cause how could I ever love someone else?

And I know we weren't perfect but I've never felt this way for no one
And I just can't imagine how you could be so okay now that I'm gone
Guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me
'Cause you said forever now I drive alone past your street

And all my friends are tired
Of hearing how much I miss you but
I kinda feel sorry for them
'Cause they'll never know you the way that I do
Yeah, today I drove through the suburbs
And pictured I was driving home to you

And I know we weren't perfect but I've never felt this way for no one
Oh, and I just can't imagine how you could be so okay now that I'm gone
I guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me
'Cause you said forever now I drive alone past your street

Red lights
Stop signs
I still see your face
In the white cars
Front yards
Can't drive past the places
We used to
Go to
'Cause I still f***ing love you, babe

Sidewalks
We crossed
I still hear your voice
In the traffic
We're laughing
Over all the noise
God, I'm so blue
Know we're through
But I still f***ing love you, babe

I know we weren't perfect but I've never felt this way for no one
And I just can't imagine how you could be so okay now that I'm gone
Guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me
'Cause you said forever now I drive alone past your street
Yeah, you said forever now I drive alone past your street."

What do fans think the lyrics are about?

Fans quickly started pointing towards Rodrigo and Josuha Bassett's rumored relationship from 2020.

Fans highlights Rodrigo's cryptic lyric "I guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me," to Bassett's two solo singles Common Sense and Anyone Else, which released in 2020.

Rodrigo and Bassett, whose characters dated in the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, reportedly had onscreen chemistry and off-screen closeness.

In August 2020, Rodrigo posted a TikTok and captioned it, "And that's on failed relationships," featuring All I Want from the HSMTMTS soundtrack in the background.

In the track, Rodrigo laments the end of a relationship as she drives through the streets after getting her license, and says, "You're probably with that blonde girl," bringing Disney star Sabrina Carpenter into the mix.

It's rumored that Carpenter and Bassett began their romance after Rodrigo and Bassett broke up sometime last year.

However, those reports have never been confirmed by neither Rodrigo or Bassett.

One fan on Twitter wrote, "olivia rodrigo's drivers license song is for joshua basset [SIC] and sabrina carpenter."

Another fan tweeted, "let's end joshua basset [SIC] #oliviarodrigo#DriversLicense."

While another Rodrigo fan wrote, "i just listened to drivers license by olivia rodrigo and now i hate joshua basst [SIC]."
