Drake is following in the footsteps of Destiny's Child, Jay Z, and Kanye West.

He is making history along with these legends, by contributing a word to the Oxford English Dictionary. 

The word? YOLO. Yes. YOLO.

You may remember the famous line in his hit "The Motto" -- "You only live once, that's the motto n**** YOLO." 

I don't think I can contain my excitement that the acronym for "you only live once" is now an official word.

Yolo is joining the Oxford dictionary alongside "cray" (from Jay Z and Kanye West's "N***** in Paris") and "bootylicious" (from Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious").
