Boujee

What does Boujee mean?

Fancy or luxurious

When you hear the term ‘Boujee’, it’s all about the high-end, classy, and fancy stuff. It’s a slang that’s derived from the word ‘bourgeois,’ which typically has a negative vibe. However, boujee is used to compliment someone’s high standards or sophisticated taste.

The origin of boujee is a bit fuzzy, but it’s safe to say it comes straight from bourgeois. It first popped up in the mid-2000s but gained real traction in late 2016 when a popular song called “Bad and Boujee” by Migos featuring Travis Scott hit the airwaves.

People use ‘boujee’ to describe anything that looks expensive or shows off high-end taste. Let’s say your boyfriend has a taste for pricey clothes, swanky cars, gourmet food, and luxury living spaces, you’d call him boujee. The same goes for a house decked out in expensive dΓ©cor and luxury features, that would be a boujee house.
