Baby’s First Feature: Hear “Glory,” By Jay-Z And B.I.C.


It’s been about 36 hours since Beyoncé gave birth to Blue Ivy Carter, her first child with Jay-Z, so why shouldn’t he release a song dedicated to his new offspring? And so, here’s “Glory,” credited to Jay-Z and “B.I.C.,” who apparently is an up-and-coming young star responsible for the coos and gurgling that floats in and out of the song. (But what could the acronym mean???) It’s happy and humbled just like all those shots of new dads in movies; you can almost smell the cigars being lit as Jay tosses off his first (but probably not last) dedication to his daughter, which has as its best line “You’re the child of a child from Destiny’s Child.”
