Tom Ford Reacts To Jay-Z’s Ode To The Fashion Designer

“Tom Ford,” one of Jay-Z’s hot new tracks on Magna Carta Holy Grail, is a song entirely dedicated to Jay’s love for the fashion designer. And now, just a few days after the release of the platinum album, Mr. Ford has shared how he feels about the anthem.

During an interview with WWD, Ford shared how flattered he was to have an entire song named after him. “It’s pretty rare that something like that happens,” the designer explained.

“It’s a kind of validation of one’s work, as it means that one has really penetrated and made an impact on popular culture,” Tom added.

The designer then revealed his favorite line from the song. “My favorite line is ‘I don’t pop Molly, I rock Tom Ford.’ I love that he gets a ‘high’ from my clothes. I have been dressing him for years now, and I have to say I think he looks great in my clothes. [He] is one of our biggest customers. He let me know about this quite a while ago,” he said.

If you haven’t heard the track, it’s HOT. Make sure you check it out.
