In 1st week of life, Blue Ivy Carter makes Billboard chart history thanks to dad Jay-Z's song
NEW YORK (AP) ' She's not even a week old, but Blue Ivy Carter is already making music history.
Billboard says that thanks to her dad, Jay-Z, featuring her on his new song, "Glory," Blue becomes the youngest person to ever appear on its chart.
Jay-Z released the song about his first-born child with wife Beyonce on Monday, and it immediately became a viral sensation. The song, which credits B.I.C., features the sound of Blue's cries at the end.
The song's refrain is "The most amazing feeling I feel/Words can't describe what I'm feeling for real/ Maybe I paint the sky blue/My greatest creation was you. You. Glory."
Now, the song will enter Billboard's chart next week at No. 74.
Blue was born Saturday, and her parents confirmed her birth Monday.
