One of my bases to consider if an internationally released song is a big hit in my country is when an able singer here in the Philippines get to do a cover of the song. But since everybody here in my country is an able singer, let me reclassify that basis. That is, if a song has been covered by a first-rate mainstream professional singer in my country, then such a song is a big hit.
And because of this, let me formally declare the sad and moving love song entitled Driver’s License originally sang by Olivia Rodrigo a big hit here in the Philippines.
Here’s the fabulous “bare” and moving version by the gorgeous Morisette Amon:
Morisette is so damn good! The vocals are so raw and emotional, she seems like living and feeling the song! She can tell such a sad love story through this rendition. Super impressive!
And that’s how I sing in the morning by the way! Haha!
