Jay-Z Features Newborn Blue Ivy In Song, 'Glory'
Rapper Jay-Z is ready for his little girl to be a star. Just three days after the birth of his daughter with wife Beyonce, Blue Ivy Carter, the rapper released "Glory," a song dedicated to the newborn, on his Life + Times website.
Jay-Z refers to his newborn in the lyrics, "The most amazing feeling I feel / Words can't describe the feeling for real, / Maybe I'll paint the sky blue, / My greatest creation was you," but he's not the only one crooning on the track. The number ends with the cries from Blue Ivy herself (or B.I.C., as she's credited in the title).
"Glory" also reveals, on a deeply personal note, that he and Beyonce previously lost a child to miscarriage. "Last time the miscarriage was so tragic," he sings, "We was afraid you'd disappear but nah baby you magic. False alarms and false starts / All made better by the sound of your heart. / All the pain of last time, / I prayed so hard it was the last time."
It appears that the rapper's prayers have been answered now that he's had "my child with the child from Destiny's Child," which the song points out is "a hell of a recipe."
