Many notable expressions from the Empire series become popular sayings in everyday speech.  The cast of Empire has continued to set trends throughout Empire season 2.  The cast of Empire is changing the way that we communicate! Among the most well-known examples:

What is the Definition of Bae
If you have watched the Empire TV show you are probably asking yourself: What is the definition of bae?

Bae (noun) – “Before Anyone Else”

In season 1 of the Empire TV show Hakeem leaves Camilla wondering what is the meaning of bae?  For anyone of of that text and have received the word you probably just thought the individual spelled the word babe wrong.

The person that sent the message probably didn’t spell babe wrong.  So what is the meaning of bae? We’ll start with an example: Hakeem Lyon’s ‘bae’ in Empire Season 2’s cast is Valentina Galindo.

Hakeem says to Camilla, “It’s all for you bae.” Camilla responds, “Bae, what is a bae?” Here, the meaning of bae is not related to the word’s Danish roots: Bae is a Danish word for poop.

The meaning of bae derives from babe, minus the final consonant and Hakeem is using it instead of using baby or sweetie.
