“The success of ‘Driver’s License’ has been a huge lesson in how you just need to, when you put a song out, you just need to let it go. And it’s everyone else’s song to interpret, it’s not your song anymore,” she revealed to Just Jared

Contributing to its popularity, rumors swirled as to who the hit song was about. The actress was caught up in an alleged love triangle with High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-stars Joshua Bassett and Sabrina Carpenter

"I completely understand why people are curious about the specifics of the song but, to me, who and what the song is about is not important. People are resonating with the song because it’s so honest, raw, and emotional," the teenager told Vogue
