After causing media frenzy with her arrival over the weekend, Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles' newborn baby has once again grabbed headlines as she makes her debut on Billboard chart this week. The infant becomes the youngest person to ever appear in any Billboard charts.
Blue Ivy Carter enters R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at No. 74 with a song called "Glory", where her rapper daddy proudly professes his love to her while she's cooing and crying. The song has got 1.7 million audience impressions on 54 radio stations, according to Nielsen BDS.
"Most amazing feeling I feel/ Words can't describe the feeling for real/ Baby I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you, you. Glory," Jigga raps in the song. "False alarms and false stops, all made better by the sound of your heart/ All the pain of the last time, pray so hard it was the last time."
The Roc Nation founder, however, was not the first musician who recorded a special ode for his newborn. In 1976, Stevie Wonder crafted a song called "Isn't She Lovely" to celebrate the birth of his daughter Aisha, and it also charted on Billboard.
Unlike "Glory", however, "Isn't She Lovely" never formally credited young Aisha as a featured guest. Also, the song did not land on a Billboard chart until almost two years after she was born.
