Olivia Rodrigo’s runaway hit single “Drivers License” just keeps getting bigger, as it has become the first song to surpass 1 billion global streams in 2021, according to figures reported to MRC Data.

The tune, which spent eight weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart, climbed past the 1 billion mark in the week ending March 25. That week, the song racked up 54.42 million global on-demand audio and video streams, bringing its cumulative total to 1.033 billion.
