Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” tops the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the second week in a row. The single is followed by Ariana Grande’s “34+35”, which jumped from No. 11 to No. 2. According to Billboard, the remix, featuring Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat, marks the highest-charting Hot 100 by a trio of women soloists in nearly 20 years.
Fans of “Drivers License” were recently left to speculate that Sabrina Carpenter’s new single, “Skin” was a response to Rodrigo’s chart-topping track. The former Girl Meets World star wrote on Instagram that it isn’t true and shouldn’t serve as an “opportunity to send more hate anyone’s way.’
She wrote, “i wasn’t bothered by a few lines in a (magnificent) song and wrote a diss track about it. i was at a tipping point in my life for countless reasons. so i was inspired to do what i usually do to cope, write something that i wish i could have told myself in the past.”
Carpenter continued, “the song isn’t calling out one single person. some lines address a specific situation, while other lines address plenty of other experiences I’ve had this past year..”
