'Blue' Bayou: Rapper Jay-Z


Wow! After becoming a new dad two days ago, Jay-Z releases this heartfelt tribute to his newborn baby girl Blue Ivy Carter (aka B.I.C.). The soulful tune is just as touching as his confessional ballad "Song Cry" from his 2001 classic album The Blueprint.

Produced by Pharrell Williams, "Glory" features Hov baring his heart and soul to his newborn child. "The most amazing feeling I feel / Words can't describe the feeling, for real / Baby I'll paint the sky blue / My most greatest creation was you," he raps.

Jay even gets more deeper into the song as he reveals to his daughter that she was conceived in Paris and that Beyoncé previously had a miscarriage. "Last time the miscarriage was so tragic / We was afraid you disappeared / But nah baby, you magic," he says.

With Jay-Z releasing this song today makes this a wonderful hip-hop moment. I ain't gonna lie, I got a little teary-eyed at the end of the song.

Congrats on the baby, Jay and Beyoncé.
