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

‘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.
