Drake Wants Royalties from Macy’s and Walgreen’s over “YOLO”
I’m sure we all know the phrase “YOLO” by now, and some of us are even annoyed at the constant usage of the “you only live once” motto. Well, we aren’t the only ones.
Drake has recently put in his 2 cents on Instagram about everyone using his tagline, including major retailers Macy’s and Walgreen’s. The stores have been selling caps, sweatshirts and other merchandise with “YOLO” emblazoned on them. To this, Drake wrote “”Walgreens . . . you gotta either chill or cut the cheque. Macy’s, the same goes for you.”
And many probably don’t already know this, but the phrase was not created by Drake, although he may have popularized it. The phrase popped up on the NBC reality show The Average Joe in 2004.
