Published Sep 13, 2016"You only live once — that's the motto." Drake knows it, and apparently the Oxford English Dictionary is about it every day, too. The prestigious collection of defined words has officially added the "YOLO" abbreviation to its pages.
The term was coined by Drizzy on his 2011 track "The Motto," and back in 2014, the online edition of the publication added "YOLO" to its wordy digital ranks. But two years on, the phrase is supposedly still relevant enough to garner a proper explanation in print.
Also included in the latest round of inducted words are terms like "clickbait," "fuhgeddaboudit," "moobs" (you know, man boobs), "vom" and "yogalates."
A series of Roald Dahl-inspired words also made it into the dictionary in honour of centenary celebrations for the author; "Oompa Loompa," "scrumdiddlyumptious," "witching hour," "human bean" and "golden ticket" have each earned a spot alongside that other classic literary term, "YOLO."
"The Motto" isn't the only Drake track getting the intellectual treatment. Chilly Gonzales recently dissected a series of the Toronto rapper's Take Care tracks on his Apple Music Beats 1 show Music's Cool. Listen to the full episode below.
