yas

Yas (YAS, or yaaaas) is a phrase that is said when an individual is satisfied with something. It gained popularity through social media circa 2016. [✔]  Yas is typically said while leaning one's head back and usually follows "oh my god". [✔][3]

 

The origin of the phrase is a YouTube video of fans serenading Lady Gaga in August 2013 by saying "Yaaas! Yaaaas!" [7]

 

A more emphatic version of "yas" is "Yaaaas Queen!" [4]

 

Supporters of Hillary Clinton used the phrase "Yaaaaas Hillary!" to support the candidate in her 2016 presidential campaign. [2]
