Awww! Jay-Z is basking in the glow of being a new dad. His wife Beyonce just gave birth to a baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter, on Saturday January 7….and not only did dad record the most touching ode to his daughter but he even sampled the baby’s first* cries at the end of this song! Wow. For the man who has always been composed and intensely private…this is a true sign of how parenthood can transform you.

Hov’s only message on the post: “Life just got really good.”

New Music: Jay-Z featuring his daughter Blue Ivy Carter “Glory”

(Alternate Stream):

Baby, I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you, you. Glory…
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 Bey…
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 goes 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.

(*I amended that because Baby Blue could have been recorded any time in the past 2 days. But this is still friggin’ beyond adorable!)

Check out the rest of Jay-Z’s most personal lyrics ever…

Most amazing feeling I feel/Words can’t describe the feeling for real.
Baby I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you, you. Glory.
False alarms and false stops, all made better by the sound of your heart
All the pain of the last time, pray so hard it was the last time.
Your momma said that 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 would of prayed more. God makes no mistakes I 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, so a pinch of Hov, a whole glass of Bey.
Glory.
The most amazing feeling I feel. Words can’t describe what a feeling for real. Baby, I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you.
Your grand pop died of liquor failure. Then he died of liver failure. Deep down he was a good man.
God damn I can’t deliver failure. Bad ass little Hov, two years old shopping on Saville Row. Wicked ass little Bey, hard not to spoil you rotten, looking like little me.
The most beautiful-est thing in this world, is Daddy’s little girl.
You don’t yet know what swag is, but you was made in Paris, and Momma 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 goes 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.
Glory Glory Glory. Sorry. Glory.
The most amazing feeling I feel. Words can’t describe what a feeling for real. Baby, I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you.

Jay-Z-Empire-State-Building-Blue-Ivy

NOTE: Can we also just address the fact that….on Saturday, the lights of the Empire State Building were awash in blue. And with his first line of “Glory” (and the fact that this photo appeared with the song), Jay-Z basically confirmed that he arranged for the Empire State Building lights as a celebration of his baby’s birth. Since Beyonce reportedly had a scheduled c-section, this would be feasible. Jawdropping, but feasible. *mind blown*
UPDATE: Haha! Thank you again to our savvy readers. DennLive just corrected me. The Empire State Building was blue in honor of…The New York Giants. Lol. Conspiracy twarted. But coincidence…ON!
