Levi’s has responded to Beyoncé giving the brand a nod on her new album, Cowboy Carter.

The award-winning artist’s newest album, which dropped on Friday, included the track “Levii’s Jeans” featuring rapper Post Malone, an obvious reference to the brand, with a little twist to note that this is Act II of her Renaissance series.
