However, the young "good 4 u" singer had been struggling with keeping up with her school work.


Back in April, Olivia revealed in an Instagram Live how that she had been so busy with her "Sour" album that she had fallen behind. At the time, she jokingly asked her fans to "pray" for her as it was almost time for her to graduate and she definitely needed those credits.

"I’ve just literally been working on the album. I need to graduate high school. I’ve been so busy with the album [that] I haven’t done a lot of school and y’all, pray for me.



"I really, really need the credits to graduate. I’m a senior this year and it’s almost go time. So, I definitely need to do that."


Olivia then revealed that she took Statistics and praised the internet community for giving her Statistics tips in the past, describing them as "awesome".


"I posted something when 'drivers license' came out and there was a video of me doing statistics."

"I wasn’t really asking for help, but I posted a screenshot of me doing stats and all these awesome genius people were helping me with my stats homework. It was so cool."

"The internet is such a community sometimes."


However, Olivia later admitted that she dropped Statistics class, as she was too busy with making her "Sour" album.

"I actually dropped Stats. I’m so sorry. So bad. I’m being a terrible influence. Literally, I was like, I’m making an album, okay, I’m not taking a Maths class. I’m switching that.

"My brain just can’t handle that much at once."
