In the 90s, several rap groups released songs that included the repeated refrain "Whoop/Whoot there it is!" This would often be played during sporting events, especially basketball, as a way to celebrate scoring a goal. Is the French "ça y est" similarly celebratory?

I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
