Drake Calls Out Walgreens and Macy’s for Using “YOLO”

Drake's Instagram (@champagnepapi)

While perusing through the aisles of Macy’s and Walgreens, early Christmas (Dec. 25), Drake called out the stores for their items with the motto, “YOLO,”  printed on.

“Walgreens….you gotta either chill or cut the cheque,” Drake captioned a photo of fitted hats with the abbreviation printed on.

“Macy’s…same goes for you,” Drake wrote right after, alongside a photo of a Charlie Brown and Snoopy shirt with the words, “Yolo is my motto.”

Drake didn’t necessarily invent “YOLO,” which stands for “You Only Live Once,” but it’s safe to say that he popularized the motto (or, “The Motto”). Drake first mentioned the phrase on Nov. 2011, when he announced the release of a collaborative mixtape with Rick Ross of the same name.

Later in the month, he released the “Take Care” bonus track titled “The Motto,” where he claims “YOLO” as his own. The single cracked the Top 20 of the Hot 100 in 2012.
