Olivia Rodrigo first became notable as a Disney Channel star, but thanks to her hit singles, she has become a voice for people who are going through heartbreaks.

Olivia Rodrigo is known for writing songs about love and breakups
In early 2021, Rodrigo made waves in the music industry with the release of her first single, “Drivers License.” The song tells a story of Rodrigo speculating that her love interest might be with another girl.
