“Guess you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me
‘Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street.”
The first spot on the list belongs to the youngest of the musical contenders–the massively talented Olivia Rodrigo and her soulful, heartbreaking hit "Drivers License." For someone so young, the maturity of the song has captured the subsequent broken hearts of TikTok girls and boys alike, spurring a trend representing transformation and perserverance.
In the TikTok video trend, a miserable-looking girl lip syncs to the song lyrics, and as it comes to its bridge, the subject leans back into a dizzying trust fall. Next thing you know, you see the girl land softly on a bed or couch of some sort, hair flawless, makeup on fleek, garbed in a beautiful gown, twinkling filter on display. It's charming in its own right, but some of the videos make you wonder: how many of these young Zoomers actually have their own driver's license?
