Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” is one of those songs we now get to hear everywhere we turn, and its success is the most obvious when you take a look at the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Five weeks since its debut at no. 1, this power ballad still hasn’t left the top spot.

“Drivers License” just clocked its fifth week atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart, which is especially impressive when you consider its competition. Cardi B had to settle for the no. 2 spot with her new single “Up”, but that didn’t stop her from celebrating its historic success.

“Just landed and my wifi back poppin. I want to say thank you to all my fans and supporters this is BIG for me. I wanted to beat my last solo single number & I over succeeded. First time a female rapper debut top 5 since Lauren [Hill],” wrote the rapper on Twitter.

The Weeknd also did pretty well on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart in the wake of his Super Bowl performance. His singles “Blinding Lights” and “Save Your Tears” took the third and fourth spot, while 24kGoldn and Iann Dior hit no. 5 with their former chart-topping hit “Mood”.
