Olivia – who turned 18 on Saturday – tweeted: “DRIVERS LICENSE SNL SKETCH IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER. I’M SHAKING.”

The singer added on her Instagram Stories: “I’m losing my mind an SNL sketch ab drivers licence omg [sic].”

The High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star’s song has been at number on in the Billboard chart for the last five weeks.

In the SNL sketch, Regé-Jean plays Drivers Licence – which he calls “my song” – on the jukebox to his buddies at the pool hall.

His gang of “manly men”, including Pete Davidson, Mikey Day, Alex Moffat and Bowen Yang, are confused as to what the tune is about.

Alex Mofatt says: “I think I overheard on the news or something that it’s actually about the kids from High School Musica. I don’t know.”

Pete Davidson replies: “Oh, who? Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron, Sharpay -that whole crew?”

Regé-Jean then insists: “Nah, man. Olivia wrote it about Joshua Bassett who’s allegedly now with Sabrina Carpenter.”

Incidentally, Olivia’s fans have been speculating that the heartbreaking song is about her reported split from her rumored boyfriend and High School Musical reboot co-star, Joshua.

Regé-Jean and his buddies then discuss Olivia’s musical influences, saying she reminds them of Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift.

One of the men cuts in, “I gotta hear that freaking bridge again, man,” and the group join forces to belt out the climactic chorus.

Olivia and Joshua were rumored to have dated last year, with the singer fueling rumors by talking about how Josh took her driving for the first time in a trip she will “always remember”.

They never confirmed their romance but fans assumed they’d split in the summer after Olivia referenced a “failed relationship” on TikTok.

Joshua then sparked dating rumors with Girl Meets World star, Sabrina, after they were pictured at lunch together and attended a Halloween party as Lavagirl and Sharkboy.

Fans thought Olivia was talking about Sabrina, 21, in the lyrics for Drivers Licence.

The teen sings: “And you’re probably with that blonde girl/ Who always made me doubt/ She’s so much older than me/ She’s everything I’m insecure about.”

Joshua and Sabrina went on to release their own songs, Lie Lie Lie and Skin, within weeks of Olivia’s hit.
