Taylor Swift Comments On Olivia Rodrigo’s Success, ‘That’s My Baby’

Olivia Rodrigo just dropped the music video for her debut single “drivers license”.

The “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” star, 17, sparked an online frenzy as she released her first single, with fans comparing her to the likes of Taylor Swift and Lorde.

The actress held a viewing party for the music vid, in which she drives through the streets alone while belting out the catchy lyrics.

“When I came up with ‘drivers license’, I was going through a heartbreak that was so confusing to me, so multifaceted,” Rodrigo said of her new track in a statement, according to Just Jared.

“Putting all those feelings into a song made everything seem so much simpler and clearer—and at the end of the day, I think that’s really the whole purpose of songwriting.

“There’s nothing like sitting at the piano in my bedroom and writing a really sad song. It’s truly my favourite thing in the world.”

After the debut of the song, it reached No. 3 on the iTunes chart, the first two sports were both held by Swift.

“Next to Taylor on the U.S. iTunes chart, I’m in a puddle of tear,” Rodrigo wrote.

“I say that’s my baby and I’m really proud,” Swift responded.
