Rodrigo performed the song playing the piano under a rotating spotlight, accompanied by a string section, giving the song a more orchestral feel than the original.

‘Drivers License’ was an almost instant success upon its release, going on to break numerous Spotify streaming records. It currently holds the record for most streams of a song in a single week on the platform (over 80million) as well as the record for most single-day streams by a non-holiday song.

Speaking to NME about the song’s success, Rodrigo said, “I mean, that is just everything… All the recognition the song has got is beyond my wildest dreams.”

Taylor Swift – is my songwriting idol and I wouldn’t be half of the woman and a songwriter I am today without her – reached out and was so supportive of the song,” she continued.

“I just found out the other day that Lorde likes it, Halsey likes it, all of these people that I have grown up listening to are saying they’re liking the song.”
