East View High School has a potential love triangle. Actress Olivia Rodrigo, who plays Nini Salazar-Roberts in the original Disney + show Music High School: The Musical: The Series, released a new single this morning, titled “Driver’s Book”, along with an accompanying music video. The song quickly sparked rumors of details about her relationship with her HSMTMTS co-star Joshua Bassett. The song includes some pretty sharpened lyrics that some fans believe are for Bassett and a certain blonde singer-actress, and now teens and teens are dizzy. For those of us who graduated from high school before 2008, let us give you detailed information.
Rodrigo and Bassett, whose characters date back to the series, had on-screen chemistry and off-screen intimacy, leading to rumors of an IRL connection. Back in August, Rodrigo published TikTok with the caption “And this is a failed relationship”, including “Everything I want” HSMTMTS a soundtrack that Rodrigo wrote and sang in the series about Bassett’s character, Ricky. In the new song “Driver’s License”, Rodrigo complains about the end of the relationship while driving on the streets after receiving his license (he is 17 again), and also mentions: “I guess you didn’t mean what you were wrote that song for me “that fans suggest is for Bassett, who released two singles” Common Sense “and” Anyone Else “last year.
Now wait – that’s not all, people. Here’s Sabrina Carpenter, the 21-year-old singer and actress who played Maya Hart in the Disney series The girl meets the world – makes her look spectacular. It is also rumored that Bassett and Carpenter started dating after Rodrigo and Bassett called him to leave in 2020. Although they also did not publicly confirm this, the two were seen together and appeared on TikToks recently. where they restore a scene from The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl. In the Driver’s License, Rodrigo refers to a “blonde girl” who is “so much older than [her]. “Actually, Carpenter is blonde and is four years older than Rodrigo.
Rodrigo announced the release of “Driver’s License” on January 4, and just an hour later Bassett announced the release of his upcoming single, entitled “Lie Lie Lie”, which will be released on January 14. Followers quickly called for a coincidence in nearby posts, calling it “awkward” and “trying to steal Olivia’s thunder.” They linked a dimly lit image of him in a car to the music video Rodrigo released today with a driver’s license. Fans have also noticed that while many cast members from HSMTMTS, including Julia Lester, Joe Serafini, Larry Saperstein, Sofia Wiley and Dara Renee, enthusiastically commented on Rodrigo’s post, only one, Serafini, commented on Bassett’s post. Do they know more about the drama that is yet to unfold? With the advent of the second season, here we hope that the power of music and dance number can fix some hearts of HSMTMTS set.
