NEW MUSIC: Jay-Z feat. Blue Ivy Carter - Glory


Within a few hours of being born, Blue Ivy Carter made waves with her first official single release (!!!). I mean...we'd all been joking about how she'd get a pregnancy smash this or an infancy hit that, but no one thought it would actually happen SO damn soon. The general opinion was that maybe she could be a child star like Raven Symoné, or a tween one like Willow Smith, but my God my God was THIS unexpected.

The track in question is "Glory", the new single from proud father Jay-Z, with his newborn baby girl credited as the featured artist thanks to the sample of the sounds she made in her first few moments of life (apparently recorded on Jigga's phone).

Opening at #74 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with 1.7 million audience impressions across 54 stations, Blue Ivy Carter suceeds Aisha Wonder (uncredited sample on father Stevie's "Isn't She Lovely?") as the youngest ever artist to grace a Billboard chart.

To top it all off, it's actually a solid track and papa Carter shows why he's hailed as one of the greatest of his generation.
