Olivia Rodrigo “drivers license” is taking off like a rocket on streaming platforms. The record is massive. It’s the first bonafide viral moment of the year and it’s exploding around the globe. Just a quick observation: The reason for the song’s overnight success is not the High School Musical-related drama that supposedly inspired the music. The record is way bigger than that and reaches far beyond the Disney fanbase. It’s all due to the emotional quality of the song itself. It was beautifully written and performed by Rodrigo, and expertly produced by Dan Nigro. He recently also produced songs for Conan Gray, Finneas and Lewis Capaldi. Nigro knows how to capture great poppy melodies and give them a slight bend to provide more character. Rodrigo and Nigro accomplished something special, and I hope we get to hear of what they cooked up.
