Jay-Z commemorates Blue Ivy Carter with a new song, 'Glory': Hear it here

Jay Z

(Jamie McCarthy/

Well, that was fast.

If Beyoncé’s news-making weekend delivery isn’t exciting enough, her husband now has one of his own: “Glory,” which Jay-Z released on his blog Life+Times.

The soul-inflected song is an ode to newly born daughter Blue Ivy Carter, who actually makes her own guest appearance, despite being only two days old. Credited as B.I.C., the baby closes the Neptunes-produced track with a bit of gentle crying.

The song’s other, non-infant guest vocalist is Pharrell Williams, who coos over the silky-smooth hook as Hov drops adoring (nursery) rhymes like, “I’ll paint the sky Blue, my greatest creation is you.”

Check out the world’s greatest baby present below!
