Goldman insiders have two things to say about this weekend: Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon’s back-to-work plan and his musical alter ego “DJ De-Soul.”
Solomon, who records as a DJ in addition to running Wall Street veteran, has announced plans to release a new single titled “Learn to Love Me” on Friday—a June 14 back-to-back to the staff. on the eve of the two-work plan, as per their verified @davidsolomonmusic Instagram account.
Goldman insiders are predicting trouble as a result of a year of tensions, with junior analysts complaining of a 100-hour work week in a PowerPoint presentation that was leaked to social media.
“They think it makes them look cool, but people are angry about it,” said a Goldman source.
In fact, Solomon has been called upon to demand employees give up their custodianship of working from home, even though he has been in the limelight for grand getaways in the Bahamas and Barbuda using company aircraft. All US employees have been asked to return to their desks by Monday, June 14.
The new single only serves to amplify those strains. “It’s one thing if you’re going out with your family and another if you’re on Page Six,” a source said of his DJing, which has landed him high-profile gigs in the posh Hamptons.
Some sources suspect that Solomon may have been trying to send a cryptic message with the song’s title. But this is already becoming a joke. A source said, “Nobody at GS likes DJ De-Soul, so he had to make a song about the way he fell in love with him.”
A Goldman spokesperson said: “David loves to produce music, and is dedicated to giving back. All proceeds from his release go to the benefit of charities, especially those with addictions.” Committed to the fight against and those in need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
