Olivia Rodrigo took to Twitter to say “DRIVERS LICENSE SNL SKETCH IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER IM SHAKING” on February 20, her eighteenth birthday. The tweet came after the Saturday Night Live (SNL) episode aired where a skit was done to Rodrigo’s most popular song, “drivers license.” The skit included Rodrigo’s song being played as SNL actors were hanging out and playing pool. When the song started playing, the actors denied knowing much of the song. However, by the end of the skit they were all singing along to it.
Rodrigo’s song “drivers license” which came out earlier this year has resulted in many questions and theories regarding who and what the song was about. The unique lyrics led fans to believe that the song is about the love triangle between Rodrigo, Joshua Bassett, and Sabrina Carpenter.
Rodrigo’s song has also gained the attention of celebrities including Cardi B since the song was released; back in January, she tweeted “Just like that girl who wrote a song about getting her drivers license, Imma write a song about the struggle of not having a drivers license.” The song also made history on Spotify for having the most streams in a day as well as being the number one song on Billboard Hot 100.
In conclusion, Rodrigo expressed pure excitement that her song had been used in the skit. SNL even tweeted back a heart emoji in response to Rodrigo’s tweet.
