Olivia Rodrigo Thought the Success of “Drivers License” Would Be Bad

OLIVIA RODRIGO scored big time with her debut single Driver’s License, which spent eight weeks at #1. But she was worried that the success might be a bad thing because she may never be able to top it.

In an interview with Elle, Olivia said, “I thought I was going to be really in my head, like, ‘I’m never going to write a song as good as that again.'”

But instead, the opposite has happened. She said, “[It’s] given me a lot of confidence in my voice.”

I totally get where she’s coming from with this. It’s like how I did such an amazing job creating a total terror with my child that I’m afraid if I ever have another kid, I won’t be able to recreate that level of detriment to society.
