History behind the term 'Turn Up'


Jazz Age Jargon

In the 1930s, during the Jazz Age, a term known as 'turn up' started to gain popularity in African-American communities. It was used to describe a lively and exciting atmosphere, often associated with parties or social gatherings. The phrase 'turn up the music' referred to increasing the volume and energy, creating a vibrant and energetic ambiance.


Hip-Hop Influence

By the 1970s, 'turn up' had made its way into the lexicon of the hip-hop culture. It became closely associated with the idea of getting hyped and letting loose on the dance floor. In this context, it referred to 'turning up' one's energy, enthusiasm, and level of enjoyment.


Party Anthem

In the early 2000s, 'turn up' took on a new meaning within the party and club scene. It became synonymous with having a great time, partying hard, and indulging in a carefree manner. This shift in meaning was reflected in popular music, with artists incorporating the phrase into their lyrics, creating party anthems that encouraged people to 'turn up' at clubs and events.


Internet Slang

With the rise of social media and internet culture, 'turn up' became a widely used slang term, especially among young people.
