Cardi B and Olivia Rodrigo Had an Adorable Exchange on Twitter and Now Fans Are Calling For a Collab
You may have heard of Olivia Rodrigo, the 17-year-old Disney Channel actress who has recently take the music industry by storm with the success of her debut single, “Driver’s License”.
Well you wouldn’t be the only one who is thinking about her. Recently, Cardi B tweeted about the viral song, namely lamenting over the fact that she does not have her driver’s license.
On Tuesday, Cardi tweeted out her frustration about the fact that she has to rely on other people to fulfill her late-night McDonald’s cravings.
“Just like that girl [who] wrote a song about getting her driver’s license, Imma write a song about the struggle of not having a drivers license,” she wrote. “I really wanted my McDonald’s at 4am last night instead of today, but I couldn’t so I felt asleep hungry.” More relatable words have never been spoken, tbh.
Shocked that the Bronx-born rapper even knows who she is, Rodrigo tweeted a response back at Cardi.
“Girl i will pick u up and take u wherever u wanna go,” Rodrigo wrote back.
Cardi, for her part, seemed excited to find a driver to take her on late-night McDonald’s runs. She wrote back: “Yaaayyy!!! Let’s go to McDonald’s and get happy meals!”
Cue the influx of Twitter stans demanding a future Olivia Rodrigo x Cardi B collab.
Olivia Rodrigo is just as surprised about “Driver’s License” success as everyone else is.
Rodrigo recently told Billboard that this past week, when “Driver’s License” shot to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart has been “the weirdest week of my whole life.”
Rodrigo was a relatively unknown Disney Channel star on Disney+’s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” before this song hit the airwaves. Now she’s a pop sensation.
“So many people that I look up to have reached out and expressed their love for the song, which is absolutely surreal,” she told Billboard. But I truly am just the same 17-year-old girl, doing statistics homework in my bedroom.”
While many people are wondering what Rodrigo’s background is, she is proudly half-Filipino.
While some people have mistakenly called Olivia Rodriguez Latina, she is actually of Filipino descent, just like previous “High School Musical” star, Vanessa Hudgens. Just like Latin American countries, the Philippines were colonized by Spain–that is why so many people of Filipino descent have Spanish-sounding last names.
Rodrigo has talked at length about her cultural and familial roots. “My great-grandfather immigrated here from the Philippines when he was just a teenager. He’s my grandma’s dad, and my grandpa is also Filipino as well,” Rodrigo revealed in an interview with the Center for Asian American Media back in 2018.
“My dad grew up in a house where they were always making Filipino food, his grandpa always spoke Tagalog. All of those traditions have trickled down to our generation.”
