Papa Jay-Z himself is celebrating the birth of daughter Blue Ivy Carter on Saturday with a new track he just posted on his Life and Times website. Warning to the sensitive: The song, called “Glory,” featuring B.I.C. (oh, as in Blue Ivy Carter, we get it), will make you cry. And in a couple of instances, Hov reveals that Beyonce had a miscarriage before she was pregnant with Blue.
“False alarms and false starts/ All made better by the sound of your heart/ All the of the pain of the last time/ I prayed so hard it was the last time,” Jay says toward the beginning of the song. Later, he refers to it even more clearly, “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/ We was afraid you’d disappear, but nah, baby, you magic.”
He repeats a refrain you’ll often hear from new parents, “The most amazing feeling I feel/ Words can’t describe what I’m feeling, for real,” and then goes on to use her name: “Baby, I paint the sky Blue, my greatest creation was you. Glory.”
We also like how Jay is already speaking with wonder about her talent: “Did you wiggle your hands for her?” (Doing the “Single Ladies” dance?!) And though he admits she doesn’t yet know what swag is, she was “made in Paris” just before Beyonce shot an album package, so like the rest of us, he expects big things of his “Lil B” (not to be confused with the Based God, of course).
Question for you guys: Do you think the baby in the track is actually Blue? Or just a stock baby sound?
