Jay-Z has never been one to let moss gather under him and he proved that yet again Monday (Jan. 9) when he released a track about his brand-spanking new baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter, on his official website.
The track, titled “Glory feat. B.I.C.,” reveals where he and wife Beyonce conceived their new addition: “”You was made in Paris.”
It also addresses a little bit of the the significance of the name “Blue Ivy”:
“Baby I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you.”
As pointed out by ABC News, three of Jay-Z’s albums have the word “blue” in their titles. According to People, “Ivy” likely stands for “IV” — the roman numeral for 4. Both Jay-Z and Beyonce celebrate their birthdays on 4ths — hers is Sept. 4, his Dec. 4) and they married on 4-4-2008.
Jay-Z also opens up about the couple’s trouble conceiving:
“False alarms and false starts, all made better by the sound of your heart.” He later adds, “last time the miscarriage was so tragic.”
UPDATE: On Monday, Beyonce and Jay-Z released this official birth announcement:
“We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support. Beyonc� & Jay-Z.”
We’re sure it was peaceful since the couple allegedly shelled out a reported $1.3 million to take over an entire floor of Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital. Hospital staffers were also, according to Yahoo!’s Goddess blog, forced to turn over their cell phones and instructed to cover the lenses of security cameras with tape.
