Beyonce’s newest hit ‘Formation” has inspired all kinds of reactions, debates and opinion pieces. It seems like everyone has something to say about the politically-charged new single. The only one who appears to be late to the party is billionaire Bill Gates.
In the song, Beyonce name drops Gates when she says “You just might be a black Bill Gates in the making.” and it turns out the 60 year old had no idea his name was mentioned in the highly talked about song by one of the world’s most popular entertainers.
When asked how he felt about it, Bill’s response was humbling.
“I said, ‘Are you serious? This is kind of a strange set of words here. I’m surprised, ‘” he said. Gates, also found out about the shoutout through a coworker.
“I guess it’s nice that people consider me successful.” He added.
