Rodrigo released ‘Drivers License’ earlier this month and the song went viral immediately, in part thanks to the help of TikTok creators. The track went on to break the record for the most single-day streams for a non-holiday song on Spotify and made its debut at Number One on the Billboard Hot 100, the 48th song in the chart’s history to ever do so.

In related news, Travis Barker appears to have confirmed that Blink-182 plan to release a new album this year.

When responding to a fan on Instagram asking if there were “any new Blink-182 albums dropping this year”, Barker simply replied “YES”.

New Blink music was promised back in July as their producer John Feldmann revealed that the band were “getting in touch with their roots” and working on songs which “have been super classic Blink – and I can’t be more excited”.

The band’s last album, ‘Nine’, arrived in September 2019, three years on from July 2016’s ‘California’. The trio also released the stand-alone single ‘Quarantine’ last year.
