Jay-Z wasted no time getting his feelings out the best way he knows how, in a recording booth. Just days after the birth of his daughter, Blue Ivy, Hova made it over to a studio to lay down a celebration of his creation. Armed with recordings of Baby Blue Ivy and Pharrell Williams to produce, he left the studio with “Glory”.
In this raw and emotional song from the rapper, we hear where B.I.C. was conceived and also that the couple suffered a miscarriage before being blessed.
Listen to the song after the jump. I have also included the lyrics too. Powerful stuff from Hova…also, is Blue Ivy the youngest collaborator ever?
The most amazing feeling I feel
Words can’t describe the feeling, for real
Maybe I paint the sky blue
My greatest creation was you, you: Glory
False alarms and false starts
All made better by the sound of your heart
All the pain of the last time
I prayed so hard it was the last time
Your mama 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 woulda 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 Bé
Your Grandpop died a nigga failure then he died of liver failure
Deep down he was a good man, goddamn, I can’t deliver failure
Bad-ass lil Hov, two years old, shopping on Savile Row
Wicked-ass lil B, hard not to spoil you rotten, looking like little me
The most beautifulest thing in this world, Daddy’s little girl
You don’t yet know what swag is but you was made in Paris
And mama woke up the next day and shot her album package
Last time the miscarriage was so tragic, we was afraid you disappeared
But nah, baby, you magic, so there you have it, shit happens
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.. Glory! Glory! Glory! Sorry..
