Opposite Of Saturation Blend Mode

Haven't been able to work out how to achieve the opposite of applying the saturation blend mode to some text on top of some footage.
Doing that makes the footage black and white where the text is, but i'm trying to achieve the effect of the text being the only source of saturation while the rest is black and white, if that makes sense?
Any ideas?

    You can probably use your text layer as an alpha channel to mask to desaturate all but the text.

    Also, if your text is the top layer, a grade layer under it could be used to desaturate everything but the text. This would be easier if your text layer happens to be higher than what you want to desaturate.
