When Beyoncé showed off her baby bump at the VMAs, the world knew she was carrying one of the world’s most privileged children. Husband Jay-Z confirms this in his new song. In Rick Ross’ “3 Kings,” Jay-Z raps “Y’all should know by now, if you don’t know/Millions on the wall in all my rooms/N–gas couldn’t f–k with my daughter’s room, N–gas couldn’t walk in my daughter’s socks. Banksy bitches, Basquiat!”
This isn’t the first time the rapper and mogul has mentioned his baby girl in his songs. Soon after Blue Ivy was born, he penned and recorded the song “Glory,” which featured a clip of the baby crying. “The most amazing feeling I feel/Words can’t describe the feeling, for real,” he raps in Glory. “Baby, I paint the sky blue/My greatest creation was you, you: Glory.” He also admitted that his wife had a miscarriage prior to conceiving Blue.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé gave a fan the surprise of a lifetime when she praised his cover of the music video for her song “Countdown.” The songbird posted a screenshot from the video with the caption “I think he did this video better than me – B.”
The fan was understandably shocked and very excited. “I’m going on her website, and I just start screaming,” said 16-year-old Ton Do-Nguyen to MTV News. “That was literally the best moment of my life — hands down,” he continued. “I was scared she would get mad. … When she posted it on her wall and everything, it was so positive.”
The response to the viral video has been overwhelmingly positive and many were impressed with the editing of Nguyen’s video, which was shockingly close to the original. Nguyen admits the task was daunting. “For each specific part, I would just look on YouTube and try and get it down to a T in front of my mirror and go off and film it,” he said. “It’s so tiring, and do you know what it’s like to be in a Snuggie in the middle of July?”
