I think at this point we can all agree that Olivia Rodrigo's drivers license is a hit.

The song, released by the 17-year-old Disney star on 8 January, went viral within days, even setting records on music charts.

In case you missed the drama behind it as well, many have speculated that the track was penned with Olivia's High School Musical: The Musical: The series co-star, Joshua Bassett, in mind.

But wait, there's more. Another Disney actor, Sabrina Carpenter, is also apparently mentioned in the song. This after some allege that Joshua and Sabrina started dating. But you can read about all of that here.

Well now that we've heard Olivia's side of the story on the beautifully haunting track have you ever wondered what the guy's response would be?

Jay Sean has, so he decided to record it. 

The Do You Remember singer shared a post on Twitter, writing: "I love the song Drivers License by Olivia Rodrigo - I decided to write and record the "guys response" version.."

Take a listen below:

Fans seemed to love Jay's rendition of the track, but it turns out he's not the only one who thought to record the song from a different perspective.

Social media users have written versions of the track from Sabrina's perspective, the guy's nosey neighbour "Karen" and even the license department officials who gave Olivia her license.
