On the day it set the record for the most streamed non-Christmas track on Spotify in 24 hours (15 January), “Drivers License” amassed 9,117,499 streams more than “Dákiti” at No.2.

She first rose to prominence as the titular Grace Thomas in the film An American Girl: Grace Stirs Up Success (2015) before being cast as Paige Olvera in Disney Channel’s Bizaardvark (2016-19). In 2019, she landed the role of Gabriella Montez in another Disney production, mockumentary TV series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, for which she wrote her debut hit “All I Want”.
