One of the new additions to the Fresh Radio playlist is “Driver’s License” by Olivia Rodrigo, who some will also know as Nini Salazar-Roberts on the Disney+ series “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”.
The song is a really powerful debut from this young singer (she turns 18 in a couple of weeks) – – a powerful song about heartbreak. In fact, there’s a fan theory that suggests “Driver’s License” is about her tv show love interest, Joshua Bassett, who allegedly broke her heart in real life and has since been linked to another Disney actress, Sabrina Carpenter. It’s believed that Olivia learned how to drive from Joshua when they were working together.
Performing the song last week on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon”, Olivia delivered it with minimal instrumentation…yet so much emotion.
She has her “Driver’s License”. And Olivia is literally “going places”.
