Goldman insiders have two things to groan about this weekend: Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon’s back-to-work plan and his musical alter ego “DJ D-Sol.”

Solomon, who spins records as a DJ in addition to running the Wall Street behemoth, has announced plans to release a new single titled “Learn to Love Me” on Friday — the eve of his June 14 back-to-work plan for employees, according to his verified @davidsolomonmusic Instagram account.

Goldman insiders are predicting trouble as a result following a year of tensions that included junior analysts complaining about 100-hour work weeks in a PowerPoint presentation that got leaked on social media.

“He thinks it makes him look cool, but people resent it,” one Goldman source said. 

Indeed, Solomon has been called to the carpet for demanding employees give up their cushy work-from-home routines even as he’s made headlines for lavish getaways in the Bahamas and Barbuda using the company’s plane. All US staffers 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 to be on Page Six,” one source said of his DJing, which has landed him high-profile gigs in the posh Hamptons.

Some sources suspect Solomon may be trying to send a covert message with the title of the song. But it’s already becoming the butt of jokes. “Nobody at GS loves DJ D-Sol, so he had to create a song about how to love him,” a source miffed.

A Goldman spokesperson said: “David enjoys producing music, and he is dedicated to giving back. All proceeds from his releases go to benefit charity, specifically those committed to the battle against addiction and those in need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
