She’s not even a week old yet and already Blue Ivy Carter is following in her parents’ footsteps, making musical history.
Credited as a collaborator on dad, Jay-Z‘s latest song, “Glory,” baby Blue is now officially the youngest person to ever grace the Billboard charts, according to the magazine.
In the song, which the rapper posted on his website and features the newborn’s cries, he rhymes about his “greatest creation,” revealing that Blue was conceived in Paris, and that he and wife, Beyoncé Knowles previously suffered a miscarriage:
Last time the miscarriage was tragic. We was afraid you’d disappear but nah baby you’re magic.”
The magazine likens “Glory” to Stevie Wonder‘s “Isn’t She Lovely,” which the R&B legend wrote about his newborn daughter, Aisha, in February of 1975. Unlike “Glory,” however, Wonder’s song didn’t include his daughter in the credits, and it didn’t hit the Billboard charts until almost two years later.
Billboard also notes that “Glory” is Jay’s 107th song to make it onto their charts…mirroring Blue’s birth date of January 7 (1-07).
