After breaking into the mainstream through her roles on Disney’s Bizaardvark and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Olivia Rodrigo has followed in the footsteps of many a Disney star before her and made a name for herself in the world of pop music. Her debut single, “Driver’s License,” was a smash hit, driven to viral fame on the back of her dramatic breakup with costar Joshua Bassett. In May, she released her first album, Sour, which broke several records and was used millions of times in videos on TikTok. This meteoric rise makes her one of the most famous names in the teen lexicon, and put her in the perfect position to partner with President Joe Biden in his effort to get young Americans vaccinated against COVID-19.
