The Disney+ star also took home the awards for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance in honor of her hit single “Drivers License,” which she released four months ahead of the May 2021 release of her debut album Sour . The album scored her seven nominations at the Grammys, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Music Video. Rodrigo was also nominated for Song of the Year, which went to Silk Sonic for “Leave the Door Open” earlier in the night.

“Woke up this morning with 7 Grammy nominations,” the singer wrote via Instagram in November 2021, shortly after the nominations were announced. “When I was younger, my family lived a few blocks from the Staples Center, where the Grammys were held every year. I would always walk out of the arena and stare wide-eyed at the plaques on the floor with all the names of the winners. I went to the Grammy Museum on so many of my free weekends because I was so fascinated by the history of the show and all the incredible musicians that made it happen.”

the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star continued, “A lot of dreams have come true for me this year, but this one is probably the most meaningful. Thanks to everyone who believed in me and supported the songs I write. and many thanks to @recordingacademy for the recognition. I am beyond humiliated. truly a day I will never forget. so thankful aghhh❤️💜❤️.”

After “Driver’s License” went viral in January 2021, Rodrigo shared how the track was inspired by her dating life. “I understand people’s curiosity about the specifics of who and what the song is about, but to me that’s really the least important part of the song,” the actress, who was previously linked to her HSMTMTS costar Joshua Basset – told billboard in January. “It resonates with people because it’s so emotional, and I think everything else doesn’t matter.”

Ahead of her success on Sunday, Rodrigo overhauled the writing and recording process for Sour in a Disney+ documentary. Late last month, the “Deja Vu” actress addressed the “heartbreak” that played a role in her music.

“I was in the situation where I needed to see him – he was dating someone else, which was devastating for me. Almost every day I felt like my world was going to end. Nobody understood how I felt or what had to do with it. By writing songs about how I felt, I created a friend for me,” she explained on March 25.
