Drake’s “YOLO” Added to Oxford Dictionary


Image Courtesy Eric McCandless/CBSDrake‘s catch phrase “Y.O.L.O.” has become an official word.

Drizzy’s acronym, which stands for “you only live once,” has been added to the online edition of the Oxford Dictionary. The term was first introduced in his 2011 hit “The Motto.” 

The word is defined as “expressing the view that one should make the most of the present moment without worrying about the future, and often used as a rationale for impulsive or reckless behavior.”

Other words that have been added includes amazeballs, sideboob, and binge-watch, as well as abbreviated phrases like ICYMI (in case you missed it) and SMH (shaking my head).
