Song of the day

 

As the world knows Beyonce and Jay Z welcomed a baby girl to this world and they released the following statement:

“Hello Hello Baby Blue!

We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012.Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”

 

Proud father Jay Z was overwhelmed with emotions who free-styled how he felt about his baby girl, recorded and released the song. The words are so beautiful and genuine and embodies all of the emotions that the Carters were experiencing with their first born. Baby Blue makes her musical debut when we get to hear her first cries at the end of the track. Baby Blue has already made history by being the youngest person ever to hit the Billboard charts! Fun fact, minutes after her birth Empire State Building was lit up in blue all night in honor of Jay and Bey‘s baby girl.

The song is just so sweet and made me tear up. I personally don’t like the name, it ain’t my billionaire lucky baby but I would have reversed it to Ivy Blue. Blue is the fourth color on the wheel and Jay’z favorite color and he has the Blueprint albums, Ivy stands for IV the numeral number 4 that is special to the Carters,  her last album was titled 4, they started dating August 4th, Bey’s birthday is on Sept 4th, Jay’s birthday is on Dec 4th, Bey’s mom birthday is on January 4th, their wedding anniversy is on April 4th and they each have a tattoo on their ring fingers with IV and that is only what the public knows! I am sure there’s more to it, so the meaning behind it is sweet.

It also seems like her name was going to be named Glory, his mother’s name is Gloria. No one knew Beyonce had suffered a miscarriage but it has been widely reported that they have had trouble conceiving and the song proves just that and as he says he prayed it wouldn’t happen to them twice and go through the heartbreak again. Also, prior to Jay & B’s relationship, Jay-Z’s ex-girlfriend was pregnant, but birthed a stillborn, which he spoke about in “This Can’t Be Life”.

When he talks about praying to God it’s implied Jay used to pray for material goods, but now he realizes that there are more important things to pray for, such as the safety of his daughter. God is a being who makes no mistakes, so in giving Jay this baby, he didn’t make a mistake, although Jay-Z self-admittedly has made mistakes in his past.

 

Glory ft. B.I.C

“The most amazing feeling I feel
Words can’t describe the feeling for real
Baby I paint the sky blue
My greatest creation was you, you
Glory

False alarms and false starts
All made better by the sound of your heart
All the pain of the last time
I prayed so hard it was the last time
Your mamma said that you danced for her
Did you wiggle your hands for her?
Glory, Glory, Glory, Sorry
Everything that I prayed for
God’s gift, I wish I would’ve prayed more
God makes no mistakes, I made a few
Rough sledding here and there, but I made it through
I wreak havoc on the world, get ready for part 2
A younger, smarter, faster me
So a pinch of Hov, a whole glass of Béy

Glory
The most amazing feeling I feel
Words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real
Baby I paint the sky blue
My greatest creation was you

Your grand pop died, a nigga fell yeh
Then he died of liver failure
Deep down he was a good man
God damn, I can’t deliver failure
Bad ass Lil Hov
2 years old, shopping on Savile Row
Wicked ass lil B
Hard not to spoil you rotten looking like little me
The most beautifulest thing in this world
Daddy’s little girl
You don’t yet know what swag is
But you was made in Paris
And mama woke up the next day and shot her album package
Last time the miscarriage was so tragic
We was afraid you disappeared
But nah, baby you magic (voilà)
So there you have it, shit happens
Make sure the plane you on is bigger than your carry on baggage
Everybody goes through stuff
Life is a gift love, open it up
You’re a child of destiny
You’re the child of my destiny
You’re my child with the child from Destiny’s Child
That’s a hell of a recipe
Glory, Glory, Glory, Sorry

 

– He also wrote a poem for his daughter and swearing to never use the Bitch word.

“Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich, I didn’t think hard about using the word bitch. I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it now with my daughter in this world I curse those that give it.

I never realized while on the fast track that I’d give riddance to the word bitch, to leave her innocence in tact. No man will degrade her, or call her name. I’m so focused on your future, the degradation has passed. I wish you wealth, health and insight. Forever young you may pass. Blue Ivy Carter, my angel.”
