The whirlwind success of Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” has sent it straight to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song, released January 8, marks the 17-year-old High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star’s first number-one debut. The track also debuts at number one on both the all-genre Streaming Songs and Digital Song Sales charts.
Billboard reports “Drivers License” has set the record for best first-week streams for a proper first single by a female artist by earning 76.1 million U.S. streams in the week ending Jan. 14, according to MRC Data.
Olivia has also earned praise from a slew of other artists including Taylor Swift, Niall Noran and, most recently, Halsey, who sent her a cake to congratulate her on the song’s success.
“Holy s*** thank u @iamhalsey,” Olivia wrote on her Instagram Story, along with a picture of the sweet gift.
The cake says “congrats Olivia!” and features an image of a fake California drivers license with Olivia’s photo.
