Olivia Rodrigo could no longer handle the rumors from the fans and decided to talk about Joshua Bassett and the lyrics of his songs, because apparently the hidden messages in music are the new trend.
Since the song's premiere, fans of the show and the singer have begun to speculate whether the lyrics could be talking about Joshua Bassett, her co-star in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. He is 20 years old and is also a musician as well as an actor, so phrases like "Guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me", which Olivia sings in her first single, have been quickly singled out as a message to his co-star.
Apparently, the fans have pointed out several connections between the songs that Joshua has published and Driver's License, and have ended up assuring that Olivia and the 20-year-old singer, who play a couple in the series, could have had a special friendship before that he started a relationship with Sabrina Carpenter. The third in contention is also a Disney star, with more experience and several successful titles, as an actress and singer, behind her. At 21, she has starred in series such as Girl Meets World, Clouds, or Tall Girl (Netflix) and has released four studio albums.
Joshua and Sabrina were first seen together in June 2020 at a rally for the Black Lives Matter movement, a few days before Olivia took off the Driver's License that has given the title to her first single and inspired the sad lyrics.
Precisely, so much speculation has made the 17-year-old singer, Olivia Rodrigo, pronounce on the matter: "I understand that people are curious about the details or about who and what the song is, but for me that is the least important", has shared in an interview with Billboard. "It comes to people because of how emotional it is and I think that the rest is not important," he added, aware that people will continue to speak whatever they say.
The truth is that Olivia has exceeded all expectations with her musical release, since on January 15 she broke Spotify's records for the most played songs in a week on the platform. "Seeing that it works so well - a moment in my life that was very painful and that has become something beautiful that maybe can help others to overcome a bad streak - is very empowering," added the artist. "I feel grateful for being able to do it", has finished.
You can also win back the love of your fans in the second season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, which is expected this year. But the story doesn't end there, because in the two weeks since Olivia released her first single, Joshua released her song Lie lie lie, with some references to past songs, and Sabrina has shared Skin. This last topic is the one that has taken all the comments because it says phrases that seem to point to Driver's License.
Fans of this love triangle assure that Olivia and Sabrina are in a rivalry, because of responding to the SAME rhymes in songs with only days of difference, gives to understand that they are sending hidden messages, but they serve to generate more fame, So it's not a bad tactic, right?
