Before Beyonce gave birth to her baby Blue Ivy Carter she suffered a miscarriage. Beyonce pregnant news took hold of the public in August of 2011 when the glowing ‘Love on Top’ singer dropped her mic and rubbed her baby bump. What many did not know then was her glow and her husband’s admirable excitement was a reflection of a long journey.
Beyonce delivered Blue Ivy Carter on Saturday night and on Monday Jay-Z released ‘Glory’. In the heartfelt rap, Jay-Z tells the story of how his “greatest creation” came to being. He talks about the pain of suffering through a false start with Beyonce’s pregnancy and now basking in the glory of his daughter. See sample lyrics of ‘Glory’ below:
You don’t yet know what swagga is but you was made in Paris
Yo mama 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’re magic.
So there you have it. Sh*t 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 a child from child of Destiny’s Child
That’s a hell of a recipe…. Glory Glory Glory”
