Jay-Z Writes Song, ‘Glory,’ About The Birth Of His Daughter Blue Ivy

Taken from here.

Jay-Z has written a new track, called “Glory” and featuring B.I.C. (Blue Ivy Carter), about his newborn daughter with Beyonce. And, I must admit, it’s pretty awesome. I kind of wanted to hate it because to like it is so cliche. But one listen and I was hooked.

The lyrics are pretty telling though, like any form of art, they may not be literal. For example, Jay-Z, talks about a “tragic” miscarriage, though we’re not sure if he’s referring to Beyonce having suffered from one prior to conceiving Blue or if this is something that happened in a previous relationship or to someone else altogether. No matter. The overall sentiment is pure joy and disbelief.

Check out the lyrics and see for yourself:


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


False alarms and false starts

All made better by the sound of your heart

All the pain of the last time

I pray so hard it was the last time

Your mamma said that you danced for her

Did you wiggle your hands for her?


Everything that I pray for

God’s gift I wish I would have prayed more

God makes no mistakes

I’ve made a few

Rough sledding here and there

But I made it through


I wreak havoc on the world

Get ready for part two

A younger, smarter, faster me

Saw a pinch of hove

A whole glass of B


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 grandpop died of nigga failure

Then he died of liver failure

Deep down he was a good man

God damn I can’t deliver failure


Bad ass lil’ hove

Two years old shopping on Savile Row

Wicked ass little B

Hard not to spoil you rotten lookin’ like little me

The most beautifulest thing in this world

Is daddy’s little girl


You don’t yet know what swag is

But you was made in Paris

And mamma woke up the next day and shot her album package

Last time the miscarriage was so tragic

We was afraid you’d disappear

But nah baby you magic


So there you have it shit happens

Just make sure the plane you on is bigger than your carry on baggage

Everybody go 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


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


There’s no denying the sense of wonderment here, which is probably why I love this song so much. Oh, it also features a sample of Jay-Z’s baby Blue crying at the end – which my or may not have made me cry, too.
