If you’ve been on the internet over the past week, you’ve probably heard something about a rumored love triangle between three young Disney stars. Olivia Rodrigo, 17, first dropped her record-breaking hit, “Drivers License”, then Sabrina Carpenter, 21, issued, what many fans believe is, her response with a new song, “Skin”.
Now, Joshua Bassett, 20, who rounds out the rumored love triangle, has reacted to Sabrina Carpenter’s January 22 track, writing on his Instagram Story, “been stuck in my head since i heard it!!! congratulations [Sabrina Carpenter] on ‘Skin’, the new label, & all that’s to come!!!”
While Sabrina Carpenter never mentioned anyone by name in the new track, fans naturally interpreted the song as a direct response to the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star’s song “Driver’s License”.
The breakup ballad was seemingly inspired by her co-star Joshua Bassett, and his rumored romance with 21-year-old Sabrina Carpenter. In the track, which debuted number one on the Billboard Hot 100, earned 76.1 million U.S. streams in one week, and went viral on TikTok, Olivia Rodrigo sings about a “blonde girl” who is “so much older” than her.
