It may feel like Driver’s License has been in our heads forever, but no, the single was released in January 0f 2021. So this really was the year of Olivia Rodrigo; in the blink of an eye, she became a household name. My nephew is obsessed with her (and wanted to chip in, so he pops by the slideshow occasionally).
