Olivia Rodrigo has snagged a rare TransAtlantic double by taking her debut single, Drivers License, to the top of the charts in the U.K and U.S.

The break-up track shot to number one in Britain on Friday and now it debuts atop the Billboard Hot 100.

The Disney Channel favorite’s single becomes only the 48th single to debut at number one in America – and the first of 2021.

Drivers License picked up 76.1 million U.S. streams and sold 38,000 downloads in its opening week of release, according to MRC Data.

The hit also tops the Billboard Global 200 and Australian ARIA Singles Chart.

Meanwhile, 24kGoldn’s Mood, featuring Iann Dior, drops to two in the U.S. after clocking up eight weeks at the top.
