It's official: "Good 4 U" singer Olivia Rodrigo graduated from high school over the weekend.


The singer and actress took to Instagram to celebrate her milestone sharing polaroid photos of herself in her cap and gown.

The 18-year-old has had an immense amount of success this year after debuting her first studio album "Sour" in May. Rodrigo released her first single "Driver's License" in January launching her career into the mainstream world of pop. The single climbed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No.1 making Rodrigo the youngest artist ever to debut to the top of the charts. The song which Rodrigo wrote, stayed in the number-one spot on the charts for eight consecutive weeks, again breaking a record for longest running number-one for a debut single.

Rodrigo's other two singles released prior to her album "Deja Vu" which also made it to the top three of the charts and her third single "Good 4 U" which again hit No. 1 on top of the the charts. Rodrigo's album Sour debuted at No.1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart.

Rodrigo is known for her role as Nini on Disney+ series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and revealed to USA Today in an interview that she wrote a song for her character.

"Lots of times I have that experience with songwriting just like Nini, where you're trying to make something, trying to write about something that you're not actually feeling," The actress dished on her song writing process. "The second that you're like, "Oh, let me just write about my real life," it becomes so much easier. It becomes therapeutic and the song becomes more meaningful. I've had that experience in my life and in my songwriting so it was cool to portray that on TV."
