It's no secret Olivia Rodrigo has become one of pop music's biggest players since making her debut in early 2021. It’s only fitting that the Disney Channel actress-turned-pop star was inspired by some of the greats before her.

Rodrigo has mastered the art of early 2000s pop and pop-punk, thanks in part to the songwriters and artists who left impressions on her from a young age.

The “drivers license” singer has shouted out many of her favorite production, songwriting and style influences during her short time as a rising solo star. And recently, she's even been able to work with and call some of her musical idols friends thanks to her meteoric rise in pop.
