Olivia Rodrigo experienced one of the most memorable moments of a new artist’s career last week: hearing her own song playing on the radio for the very first time. The “Drivers License” singer-songwriter shared that exhilarating moment with her fans on Friday (Jan. 15).
Rodrigo’s reaction was filmed and posted on Instagram, where she wrote, “somebody say sike rn.”
In the clip, she squeals and covers her mouth, and a muffled “I’m gonna cry” can be heard. “It’s on the radio,” she says before singing along in the car to her own tune. “It’s on the radio.”
“Drivers License,” Rodrigo’s emotional breakout single about a heartbreaking drive through the suburbs haunted by what could have been with an ex — and there’s plenty of speculation about the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ star’s IRL inspiration — was just released on Jan. 8. It’s expected to make a major impact on the Hot 100 after breaking records on streaming services in its first week.
