I don’t think I’ve ever become obsessed with a song or an artist as quickly as I did with Olivia Rodrigo and her single, drivers license. Once again, TikTok is to blame.
The only things I’d ever heard about Olivia in the past was through my sister blasting her song All I Want, from the High School Musical: The Musical series. Can’t say I got behind the show as much as my little sister, but you cannot say the girl can’t sing. She’s go a pair of lungs on her, but more so, her songwriting is incredible.
Enter, drivers license.
I became aware of it’s release very quickly on TikTok, and in less than 24 hours it was charting and currently, it sits at No.1. Insane. If you’re a fan of Taylor Swift, I’d highly recommend you give the song a listen.
It’s a beautifully anthem-ic heartbreak song, and the songwriting had me in awe the first time I listened. That said, every time I listen to it, I find something new to love about it. The lyrics are so raw and intentional and the entire song is filled with beautiful dynamics.
The bridge is a personal favourite of mine, the way it builds and rides out is such a perfect release. I’ve already added it to a bunch of my playlists; you can find it on kaleidoscope, vibe or die and the newly created 365 playlist for 2021.
The song is an emotional punch to the gut in the best way possible. It’s dramatic, tumultuous and cathartic and makes for such a stunning single, one that has everyone who listens to it flipping out as far as I can tell.
