Is Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Driver’s License’ about this love triangle?

Driver’s License put the young singer Olivia Rodrigo on the world map. The song is about a broken relationship, which an unnamed blonde would have something to do with. And that blonde now seems to have responded with her own number.

The debut track Driver’s License Olivia Rodrigo immediately became a bull’s eye for the 17-year-old singer. The song became a worldwide hit and also managed to set some big records. In Driver’s License Olivia sings about a blonde who ran off with her lover. And that blonde could be Sabrina Carpenter.

Driver’s License

Anyone who has already turned on the radio or regularly scrolls through his or her For You page on TikTok knows the song Driver’s License well. It was the debut single by Olivia Rodrigo who is known from High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

Joshua Bassett also plays in that series. While Olivia and Joshua never made it public, there were strong rumors that the two were dating for a while. But that relationship is said to have ended recently. That’s why many fans think so Driver’s License is addressed to Joshua.


References to Joshua can also be found in the lyrics of the song. This is how Olivia sings: “Guess you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me. ” That would be a reference to the number Anyone Else that Joshua released in July 2020. About that song he said it was addressed to a good friend for whom he had feelings. “I was hopelessly in love with a good friend … who was in a relationship with someone else.” When Olivia and Joshua met on the set of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series she was still in a relationship with Ethan Wacker.

In addition, Olivia previously announced that Joshua taught her to drive. So it seems logical that she fantasized with him about when she would get her driver’s license and drive to his house.

That blonde girl

In Driver’s License does Olivia talk about “that blonde girlAnd that is also interesting. Because in the original version of Driver’s License, which Olivia shared on Instagram in December, the lyrics were still about “that brunette girl“. So Olivia changed the lyrics from a brunette to a blonde. And now Joshua happens to be linked to a famous blonde: Sabrina Carpenter.

In recent weeks, Joshua Bassett has been regularly spotted with the blonde Sabrina Carpenter. As a result, many fans are convinced that Sabrina the blonde is out Driver’s License and that the song is also about Joshua. And the new release of Sabrina adds some fuel to the fire of speculation.


Sabrina launched her new song a few days ago Skin and the lyrics of that song seem to be a reaction to the lyrics of Driver’s License. Sabrina sings: “Maybe we could have been friends if I with you in another life. Maybe then we could pretend there’s no gravity in the words we write. Maybe you didn’t mean it, maybe ‘blonde’ was the only rhyme. ” This seems to be a clear reference to the “that blonde girlFrom Olivia in Driver’s License.

Furthermore in her song Sabrina also sings “You’ve been tellin ‘your side, so I’ll be telling mine“. Later in the song she sings: “You can try to get under my skin, while he’s on mine, Literally referring to how she now has a relationship with Joshua. Finally, Sabrina also sings: “Don’t drive yourself insane, it won’t always be this way. ” This word choice can therefore be a reference to Driver’s License.

Sabrina: “Skin is about several things ”

With a post on Instagram, Sabrina Carpenter now denies that Skin a response is on Driver’s License. “I didn’t get annoyed by a few lines in a (great) song just to make one diss track to copy.”

Skin is about a lot of different things that made the measure for Sabrina full and she wanted to write down her emotions in a song. “I was at a turning point in my life for countless reasons. So that inspired me to do what I usually do to deal with such things, write something that I wish I could tell myself in the past. ” So she doesn’t deny that Olivia and her number was one of the reasons, but it wasn’t the only meaning behind it Skin. “The song doesn’t affect one person in particular. People can only hit you if you give them the strength to do it. And a lot of people tried to get me down. ”
