Having welcomed he and Beyonce‘s daughter Blue Ivy Carter into the world on Saturday night in New York, Jay Z premieres new song “Glory” in tribute to his newborn wonder; produced by Pharrell and complete with gargling baby sounds from the young starlet herself.
“The most amazing feeling I feel / Words can’t describe the feeling for real / Baby I’ll paint the sky Blue / My greatest creation was you….” Jigga raps over the mellow, celebratory cut, 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.”
