Was Beyoncé's "Formation" Inspired by the Real Housewives?

Does Karen Huger's Husband Like Being Called "the Black Bill Gates"?

Beyoncé nearly broke the Internet when she released new video for "Formation" Saturday. As you took in all of the fabulousness of the audio and visual, some of the lyrics may have sounded a little familiar.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

In the song, Beyoncé drops a couple phrases that have been made famous by Bravolebs. The first being, "I twirl on them haters," which features Kenya Moore's favorite word ("twirl"). Queen Bey also sings, "You might just be a black Bill Gates in the making ('cause I slay)/I just might be a black Bill Gates in the making," with "black Bill Gates" being the name The Real Housewives of Potomac's Karen Huger has bestowed upon her husband, Raymond.

And in case you were wondering, Kenya and Karen definitely noticed that Beyoncé referenced their beloved phrases in her new song — and they love it, as anyone who got a shout out from Queen Bey would.

It's unclear if Beyoncé's song was actually inspired by The Real Housewives of Atlanta and RHOP. However, this isn't the first time Beyoncé has quoted Kenya. She also said that her Super Bowl XLVII Halftime performance was "Gone with the Wind fabulous" back in 2013, which was also a phrase made famous by Kenya on RHOA. Maybe Kenya getting mistaken for Beyoncé all the time isn't really as far-fetched as her RHOA castmates originally thought.

Kenya is Beyonce?
