Inspired By Beyoncé, Levi’s Changes Their Name to Match ‘Cowboy Carter’ Track

Beyoncé gave legendary denim brand Levi’s a nod on her new album Cowboy Carter with a track called “Levii’s Jeans” featuring Post Malone, and in response the brand is changing their name to match. On Instagram, the brand’s official page showcased a fitting name change: Levii’s.

Their bio on Instagram was also edited, reading “FKA (Formerly Known As) Levi’s” with a bee emoji. Additionally, the profile picture is also altered to reflect the name change.

Beyoncé has name-dropped a few brands over a few songs, leading to a untick in popularity for a time. For example, in her song “Formation” from 2017 she referenced Red Lobster, which led to a 33% increase in sales for the seafood chain and a trending search on Twitter for the first time. The power of a good name-drop from the biggest artist in the music industry is palpable, and, arguably, pretty good for business.
