Good Morning, Happy Friday, we have some drama.

For those of you who thought the Olivia Rodrigo, Joshua Bassett, Sabrina Carpenter rumored Disney Channel love triangle dramz was over, think again.

Listen to your favorite Pop music now on RADIO.COM.

If you’re unfamiliar with the latest goings on, you’ve no doubt at least heard of the song "drivers license" which was released as Olivia's debut single at the beginning of the year. As for the rest, we’ll fill you in. Olivia and Joshua, who play love interests on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series were rumored to be dating within the past year, however never publicly confirmed.

With Rodrigo’s track featuring the lyrics, "And you're probably with that blonde girl / Who always made me doubt / She's so much older than me / She's everything I'm insecure about.” In addition to some paparazzi pics and some flirtatious TikTok vids, the internet alleges that the “blonde girl” Bassett has moved on with is Sabrina Carpenter.

As for whether any of that is true or false, well Sabrina isn’t doing any denying, in fact, by the sounds of it, it seems she has something to get off her chest, or rather “Skin.”

In what many believe to be a direct response to Olivia's viral and chart topping hit, Sabrina dropped a song of her own, a surprise single, “Skin." As to be expected Carpenter's lyrics have been carefully dissected, and the internet has some thoughts.

Perhaps the most telling line in the single is during the bridge that goes, "Don't drive yourself insane / It won't always be this way." Umm yes, she actually used the word “drive.”

However, it was the following line that had us screaming. “Maybe you didn't mean it / Maybe blonde was the only rhyme." Such moxie, we’re living for this. Fans were quick to connect Sabrina’s words with Rodrigo’s lyrics in "driver's license" to a "blonde girl,” which as we said is assumed to be Sabrina.

"You can try to get under my, under my, under my skin while he's on mine," the Work It star continues during the chorus. "I wish you knew that even you can't get under my skin if I don't let you in.”

Honestly this whole thing is giving us some major Hilary Duff, Aaron Carter, Lindsey Lohan flashbacks, with less face tattoos and more talent. And we’re unashamedly here for it all. Check out Sabrina’s new single “Skin” below and see what you think.
