The words to the song don’t really make sense - or sentences.
Yeah, we fancy like Applebee's on a date night (that's right)
Got that Bourbon Street steak with the Oreo shake (ayy)
Get some whipped cream on the top too (gotta add that whipped cream)
Two straws, one check, girl, I got you (girl, I got you)
Bougie like Natty in the styrofoam (styrofoam)
Squeak-squeakin' in the truck bed all the way home (all the way home)
Some Alabama-jamma, she my Dixieland delight
Ayy, that's how we do, how we do, fancy like

R9, I loathe this song, commercial, and food establishment - but every terrible lyrics makes trashy sense. They’re going on a relatively high- class date at Applebee’s (rather than Wendy’s). They’re getting a cheap piece of meat slathered in sugary sauce, accompanied by a milkshake with Oreos and very-necessary whipped cream. They’re splitting the shake, but he is paying for both of them (apparently, not the usual routine). They feel trashy-rich, just like having a styrofoam cooler full of beer. Apparently, the color makes noise in the truck bed on the drive home - though there is a string sexual implication avoided by the impossibility of fucking in the back of a moving truck. He loves her, but is clear to distinguish their coupledom from pretentious Northerners. And that’s his idea of a special celebration.
Of course it’s terrible. They love that part the best.

He's using "fancy" ironically. You can tell because Natty Ice is not "fancy" by any stretch of the imagination like r19 and r23 said. His audience understands that there's nothing fancy about Applebees. It's a joke to the people who like this song.

I have avoided Applebee’s since around the turn of the century or so. There was a show on A&E or Bravo or something. It was about gay couples having wedding ceremonies. There was a big hubbub about it of course with the religious right saying they were going to not use places who advertised on the show. Apparently an Applebee’s ad appeared on it that they didn’t purchase and they wanted to make it very clear they DIDN’T advertise on it. I was never a big Applebee’s fan, but after that I decided to just not go again.
It hate this ad. And they are not fancy, either real or ironically.

It's amazing how a word black Americans coined and have been using for GENERATIONS (I'm 57 and have heard "bougie" literally my entire life) has only in the last five years or so "crossed over" to the white American consciousness.
(And, like most slang borrowed from black Americans, is used incorrectly 90+% of the time, like "jacked up", "showed out", and dozens more).

I thought the song was written just for the commercial. I was surprised to learn it is a real song. We didn't have a lot of money growing up so my parents considered Applebee's "fancy" along with just about any other place you had to sit at a table and be waited on. We were used to the McDonald's/Wendy's/Burger King drive-thrus if we were going to eat anywhere at all. The song is still kind of obnoxious, though.

I live in a college town and once in a blue moon go to the Applebee's, and every time I do the college students (who make up 99% of their clientele) stare at me and whoever I'm with like we're their parents and are gonna get them in trouble.

what's really noteworthy is this is the first time I can recall a song being a hit on the radio/charts at the same time as it was allowed to be used commercially! Usually songs become hits and then a few years later if the singer is having money troubles then the song reappears in ads. This guy clearly is thinking he's not guaranteed to get another hit so better make as much money at once as he can.
It's understandable given that about 10 years ago he came out with his debut album and it completely flopped. His success this year must be a surprise. His old pics he had that horrible Bieber haircut too lmao
