Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” has inspired Jay Sean to give the breakout hit a little re-write — from the point-of-view of the song’s love interest (whoever that might be).
“I love the song Drivers License by Olivia Rodrigo – I decided to write and record the ‘guys response’ version,” Sean tweeted Sunday night (Jan. 17).
“I was in my feels on this one … beautiful song I had to hop on this trend,” he explained on TikTok, where he posted a short clip of his creative take on Rodrigo’s debut single, which looks to be 2021’s first runaway hit.
“I wish I could meet you on the corner/ Pull up to the sidewalk/ I’d meet you by the stop sign where we first kissed/ Now you wonder where I’ve gone/ ‘Cause everywhere I turn/ You’re in everything that I see/ You never saw me/ ‘Cause I can’t stay here on this street,” Sean sings on his version of “Drivers License,” trying to match the emotion of Rodrigo’s heartbreak.
