Shortly after his infant was born at New York City's Lenox Hill Hospital Saturday, Jay-Z, 42, headed into the recording studio to put his emotions into song with the new track "Glory." In the song -- which features the proud papa rapping about "the most amazing feeling" -- little Blue Ivy's cries can be heard.
"It's historical. The charts are almost 72 years old, so to be the youngest ever to chart is something," Billboard's editorial director Bill Werde, told the New York Daily News of Blue Ivy's accomplishment.
"Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven," the new parents gushed. "It was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support."
