Slaps

What does slaps mean?

Is impressive

Slaps is another way to say that something is really good, or impressive. The term comes from the feeling of receiving an open hand slap, which is startling and grabs your attention, but in this context, it is startling in a positive way.

The term was coined in the mid-2000s to describe great, ear-catching music. However, it wasn't until the mid-2010s that it gained more prominent usage online on social sites, like Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat, as more of a generic term for anything that is awesome.

It is often used to describe art-related content that is really good, such as fashion trends, movies, songs, photographs, and TV shows. However, it may be used to describe anything you are impressed by, like a well-made sandwich or cool-looking car.

Example

"What do you think of my new ride?"
"This whip slaps!"
