What does Holla mean?

‘Holla’ is slang for ‘Holler’

Holla is a shorter, trendier way of saying “holler,” which means to call out or draw attention to someone. It’s often used when someone wants to get in touch or show respect or romantic interest in someone else.

This slang term is heavily associated with the nightclub and hip hop culture of the early 2000s. It became even more popular after it was featured in a number of rap and hip hop songs, such as the 2004 track, “Hollaback Girl” by a popular artist, say Jessica Alba.

For example, if you want someone to contact you, you might say, “Give me a holla when you’re free, okay?” If you’re attracted to someone and want to flirt with them, you might say, “I’m gonna holla at that redhead over there.”

Besides, some people also use Holla as an expression of excitement or agreement. In such cases, they might shout out “Holla!” together. This use of the term helps to build camaraderie and excitement in a group setting.
