I was reading one of Olivia Rodrigo's interviews:
I say, ‘I've never felt this way for no one' which is completely grammatically incorrect.
Why is that incorrect? It is a part of her song, Driver's license, lyrics.

Olivia was referring to the double negative, never and no. She said
"I also put a double negative in the song when I say, ‘I've never felt this way for no one,' which is completely grammatically incorrect.
Double negative is defined as the use of two negatives in the same phrase or sentence.
