Billboard Hot 100: Olivia Rodrigo Debuts At #1 With ‘Drivers License’

Published: Tuesday 19th Jan 2021 by Sam

As chart sensations go, the industry hasn’t quite seen a trajectory like that established by Olivia Rodrigo in a long time.

For, the 17-year-old’s debut single ‘Drivers License’ – which has become omnipresent in a super short space of time – has premiered at #1 on the coveted Billboard Hot 100.

Full story below…

‘Drivers License’ sped to the top by way of colossal first week performance.

Indeed, it amassed 76.1 million US streams, sold 38,000 downloads, and racked up 8.1 million radio airplay audience impressions.

Its success was powered by TikTok challenge, support from Taylor Swift, and Rodrigo’s Disney following (having starred in shows such as Bizaardvark’ and ‘High School Musical: The Series’).

A top priority for label Geffen, Rodrigo’s launch has been nothing short of phenomenal.

Has music found its newest “it” girl?

  3. Meme January 19, 2021

    Cool voice. Love seeing the new kids do their thing. Song is boring tho.

  4. Susan January 19, 2021

    Meanwhile Sabrina carpenter (the blonde Olivia is allegedly dissing in this song) has never had a single song chart on billboard! Congrats Olivia!

  5. Ugghh January 19, 2021

    Tik Tok made this happen. It’s a social media trend; nothing more

    Song isn’t anything special, but good for her. No many can say they have accomplished this

    • Clarks0o0ñ January 19, 2021

      Gurl, shut ur mouth

      This song has no challenge or dance attached to it on tiktok

      U open ur unwashed mouth to speak without even thinking. Dumb àss

      • Ugghh January 20, 2021

        You clearly don’t do research lol

    • Susan January 19, 2021

      She’s from a show on Disney. That’s how this happened

    I pity normani.

    Every day, newer , fresher more exciting girls and cropping up.

    Just look at this olivia girl for example,.

    Shes fresh, shes exciting, her sound is different from what’s trending right now (disco,)

    • Xavier January 19, 2021

      B**** can’t keep Normani’s name out of mouth.

      What you should worry about is Camilla. Normani does not have a number one, but so did Whitney when she released her debut single. So did Janet Jackson and all these groundbreaking and iconic artist at the beginning of their career. It isn’t always about Commercial success.

      Aaliyah never had a #1 single or album but SZA, Summer walker and all these new rnb acts are inspired by her.

      Lastly, nobody is anticipating Camilla’s Cinderella movie nor her 3rd studio album but I can mention 10 publications here in the US and others in the UK who are still anticipating Normani.

      • Clarks0o0ñ January 19, 2021

        “Normani does not have a number one, but so did Whitney ”

        Not u comparing normani to whitney.

        😂😂😂😂

        U guys have been anticipating normani’s album since 2017.
        4 whole years has passed and still no album from Camila’s backup dancer
        😭😭

        Aaliyah had a number 1 song.
        Try again hit number 1
        💅

      • LOL January 19, 2021

        lmaoooo flopmila doesnt have a solo #1 tho, she had to c*** hop off of young thug and her gay boyfriend tho lmfaooooooo

      • Clarks0o0ñ January 19, 2021

        A number 1 is a number one

        Camila has 2
        Olivia has 1
        Normani has ZERO
        😂

    • LOL January 19, 2021

      lmaoooo and yet nobody is talking about that has been flop camila, shawn mendes and his gay fans couldnt even save her, Olivia just bodied her flop ass lmfaoooooooooooo

      • Clarks0o0ñ January 19, 2021

        Girl, Olivia and Camila have number 1’s

        Normani doesnt even have a top 5 hit
        Her highest chart single peaked at number 7
        🤭🤭

        RCA has shelved her album
        Worry about that.

    • UHoesFunny January 20, 2021

      Fresh? Exciting? You’re delusional just like Camel Toe was when she released that Christmas song that fell HARD off the charts in just under 48hrs 💀 I guess this is the next best thing to her. Go awf sis 😹😹 We love to laugh at it.

  7. Clarks0o0ñ January 19, 2021

    The only hype this gurl got was from Taylor swift.

    Talent will always win.

    No amount of celebrity endorsements, viral tweets, dance challenge, sympathy and pity can give u a career.

    Normani, what’s good?

    • LOL January 19, 2021

      lmaoooo why you asking about normani when this girl just ended your fave flopmila in 1 week, whats good flopmila lmfaoooooooo

      • Clarks0o0ñ January 19, 2021

        Ended my faves, like how?
        Camila chilling with her 2 number 1’s

        U better worry about dua removing normani from her song if it ain’t me
        😂😂😂
        The gag of year

        Nobody wants to carry around death weight

      • Xavier January 19, 2021

        @Lol, why argue with this fool. Clarksoon is a dumb b**** who has been living in this delusion since forever.

        Try Again was a number two hit, b****. That song never hit number one. Stay spreading these lies that Dua removed Normani.

        Why would Dua suddenly remove Normani from a song she’s been teasing forever. What you are saying is a rumour and will remain a rumor.

        O wasn’t even going to reply to your trash mind initially but you stay spreading lies.

      • Clarks0o0ñ January 19, 2021

        Try Again” debuted on the US Billboard Hot 100 on the week of March 18, 2000 at number fifty-eight,reaching number one on the week of June 17, 2000

        Try Again” was the first song ever to reach number one on the BillboardHot 100 based solely on the strength of its radio airplay.

        💅
        U should know me by now, I always come with my receipts.

    • UHoesFunny January 20, 2021

      So delusional…if this is what you get off to, so be it 😹😹 Someone get this fat queen some lotion so she can finish 💦 Nobody will ever be checking for Camel Toe, she had her chance and she blew it. I predict her Cinderella movie will go str8 to “On Demand” and Rent Now 💀 Not even worth an HBO Max release, won’t get it.

  8. Xavier January 19, 2021

    Congratulations to Olivia. Sabrina Carpenter would only wish to achieve this.

    I like Olivia, but this song just ain’t it. All I want is better than this one. I love the bridge on this song and her voice is very good. This song is predicted to block 34 35 from the top spot next week. Ariana should just release POV along with a great music video and just take a rest after that.

    This song ain’t nothing special tho

  9. tyty January 19, 2021

    Chile gen z mediocrity 😂😂 congrats I guess.

    • Fancy BISH January 19, 2021

      lol 😂

    • UHoesFunny January 20, 2021

      Soooo beyond basic. It’s actually wild 🥴 I’m offended

  10. Lou January 19, 2021

    Who!!!?????

    • J January 20, 2021

      Bruh I’m so confused RN

  11. UHoesFunny January 20, 2021

    Wow. This song is horrible. White ppl am I right? 😂😂

  12. UHoesFunny January 20, 2021

    Kids these days, soooo lazy 🥱💤

  13. ummm chile January 20, 2021

    this song is sooooo overhyped, it didn’t deserve #1 imo. it’s so generic and basic.

  14. DeAnna February 21, 2021

    This girl is clearly an industry plant from Disney. Literally never heard of her until this song blew up on TikTok. Those executives at Disney haven’t produced a pop star in a while and probably are trying to pushing her as the next Taylor Swift, hence why she’s always kissing Taylor’s b***. Don’t see her having a long career tho, Olivia seem boring and the song is mediocre

  15. DeAnna February 21, 2021

    She’s an industry plant. Disney is working overtime with those streaming farms because I had no choice to who she was. Looked her and she seems boring and the song is mediocre.
