Olivia Rodrigo’s Net Worth Has Pretty Much Skyrocketed Since She Released “Drivers License”

Olivia Rodrigo’s Net Worth Has Pretty Much Skyrocketed Since She Released “Drivers License”

You might not have known who Olivia Rodrigo was at the beginning of 2021, but I’d venture you do now. Ever since releasing her debut single, “Drivers License,” Olivia has catapulted into superstardom at the tender age of 17 (aka the same age pop icons like Taylor Swift and Lorde earned widespread fame for the first time).

Now that Olivia’s song—and critically-acclaimed debut album, Sour—is EVERYWHERE, surely she must be making $$, right? The short answer: Yes. The long answer: Also yes, but Olivia actually made quite a bit of ka-ching before “Drivers License” ever hit your playlist thanks to starring in a few Disney Channel shows when she was younger. The exact contents of Olivia’s bank account are a bit obscure (because she basically became hella famous overnight), but don’t worry—I have invoked the spirit of Sherlock Holmes to figure out exactly what her net worth might be.

Olivia first started raking in major dough on Disney Channel.

Olivia has had starring roles on two Disney programs—Bizaardvark (2016 to 2019) and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (2019 to 2021). Although the details of Olivia’s contract with Bizaardvark were never released, we do have an estimation on what her earning potential for the show was.

Ethan Whacker, one of Olivia’s costars, made more than $375,000 during the first two seasons (41 episodes) of the show. TMZ also reported that if Ethan were contracted for two additional seasons, he could make another $400,000, raises included. Mind you, Ethan wasn’t even the main character of the show—but Olivia was, which means she made serious bucks during Bizaardvark’s three seasons for playing Paige Olvera.

It’s also unclear what the actors in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series made, but based off Miley Cyrus’s, Cole and Dylan Sprouse’s, and Rowan Blanchard’s earnings for their respective Disney shows, we can guess that Olivia made anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000 per episode. *cries in poor*


You need all the intel on that “Drivers License” drama. So do we. Let’s overanalyze it together.


She’s had roles *outside* of Disney too.

Olivia has the MF range, mmkay? Before getting into Disney, she starred in an American Girl movie titled Grace Stirs Up Success.

And if that wasn’t cool enough, Olivia also made a brief appearance in a 2017 episode of New Girl!! Peep her acting chops @ the 00:22 mark:

Let’s talk about “Drivers License,” shall we?

At the moment, “Drivers License” has racked up more than 774 million streams on Spotify and more than 212 million views on YouTube in the mere weeks since its release. These numbers are great for Olivia’s bank account, considering streams + views = 💸💸💸. These figures are only expected to climb, too, since Billboard says Olivia has one of the most dominant Hot 100 hits of the past 30 years.

Even the people at Spotify were stunned at how well the song did. “We’ve never seen anything like this, where you do have a newer artist that just comes out of the gate in such a dominant way and just continues to grow,” Spotify’s Global Hits Lead Becky Bass told Billboard. “I mean, we were like, ‘Whoa, these first-day numbers are huge!’ And then they were bigger the second day, bigger the third day…so it really feels unprecedented and likely is unprecedented.”

And as for Sour, the jury is still out on if it outsold your fave, but the numbers are promising—Hits Daily Double projects that the album could end its first week with 60-70,000 U.S. album sales and 195-225,000 total U.S. units (which yes, includes track streams and track sales).

Of course, Olivia Rodrigo merch is now a thing!

Every good album needs equally good merch to go with it, amirite or amirite? Olivia’s new line of products—which includes T-shirts, hoodies, keychains, phone wallets, hats, and more—has been selling like hotcakes. In other words, sign up for her newsletter to know when her swag restocks.

So, what is Olivia’s net worth?

According Celebrity Net Worth, Olivia is worth $4 million dollars now—a far cry from the $500,000 that Popbuzz initially predicted her to be at back in January. Homegirl has more than money than I ever had at 18, so I’m gonna (a) continue feeling financially inadequate and (b) figure out how to become an overnight pop sensation. Whichever comes first!
