YOLO (you only live once), made famous by Canadian rapper Drake, has been immortalized as one of dozens of new words added to Oxford's online dictionary this week.

Made popular in his hit single The Motto, Oxford acknowledges in its definition that it's actually an acronym from the 1980s.

Other acronyms now considered words: ICYMI (in case you missed it), SMH (shaking my head) and FML (f--- my life).

Some might consider that amazeballs (amazing), while others might think it's cray (crazy) -- two other words added to Oxford.

But the dictionary has evolved to try and keep up with our hyperconnected world and now releases quarterly updates online.

Binge-watch, douchebaggery, live-tweet and humblebrag are some of the other words added.

The new words will not appear in the paper-and-ink Oxford English Dictionary.
