Now that's a damn fine way to ring in the new year: Beyonce & Jay-Z welcomed daughter Blue Ivy Carter on Saturday night in New York, birthing Hip-Hop's crown princess.
Feeling the fatherhood vibe, Hova headed into the booth and recorded a new song for the occasion, called "Glory," produced by Pharrell. It's even got little Blue's first cries in the mix.
“The most amazing feeling I feel, words can’t describe the feeling for real,” raps Jay-Z. Check out the full track below:
"Baby I’ll paint the sky Blue / My greatest creation was you,” Jigga raps over the mellow track, continuing to reflect: “False alarms and false starts / All made better by the sound of your heart / All the pain of the last time / Prayed so hard it was the last time. / Your mama said 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 woulda prayed more / God makes no mistakes, I made a few / Rough sled in here and there but I made it through / I wreak havoc on the world… / Get ready for part two / A younger, smarter, faster me / So a pinch of Hov, a whole glass of B.”
Well done, Hova. Well done.
