Drip is used as a kind of compliment today. People use drip to describe someone’s sexy or fashionable style or look. So when someone mentions your drip, they are talking about your stylish appearance. Many credit Zoey 101 for originating the slang.


You may have heard someone say they are high-key rooting for someone. What that means is that they are openly invested in it. High key means ‘extremely’ or ‘openly’; it’s an open feeling you don’t mind putting out there. Low-key is on the other side.

Low-key means an indirect or subtle feeling you don’t want to put in the open; it’s more like some kind of hidden or background feeling. When someone says they are low-key sad about something, it means they won’t show it.
