Jay-Z performs song on his 'greatest creation,' announces arrival of baby Blue

Jay-Z has rapped about making "the song cry," and now it seems like he is aiming to get fans welling up with his latest song, a tribute to his newborn daughter.

The rapper and his wife, singer Beyonce, had a baby girl over the weekend, the couple announced in a statement Monday.

"We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012," the pair say in a post on Beyonce's website. "Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 pounds and it was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support."

Meanwhile, the New York City hospital where the couple welcomed their newborn has issued a statement of its own to denounce reports that Beyonce and Jay-Z received special treatment.

"Lenox Hill Hospital and its staff were delighted to welcome the Carter family for the birth of their firstborn on Saturday evening, but we are troubled by the misinformation being circulated in some news media reports," the executive director of the Lenox Hill Hospital, Frank Danza, said in a statement Monday. "The suggestion that the couple paid $1.3 million to rent an entire maternity floor is simply not true. The family is housed in an executive suite at the hospital and is being billed the standard rate for those accommodations. Our executive suites are available for any patient, including the food service and amenities provided to the Carter family."

There were also rumors that a father was prevented from seeing his premature twin girls by Beyonce and Jay-Z's security team, but Danza denies the reports. While the superstar couple did have their own security, "No security plan that we or the Carters' security team put in place would have prevented or delayed families from gaining access to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and to date, no families have complained to the hospital about being denied access to the NICU."

Danza adds that the hospital has "have made every effort to ensure minimal disruption to other families experiencing the births of their own children over the past three days."

On Monday, Jay-Z focused on baby Blue by releasing a song titled "Glory" on his website "Life + Times," along with a single statement: "Life just got REALLY good."

Jay-Z rhymes on the song, which features B.I.C. - three guesses what those initials stand for - "The most amazing feeling I feel/words can't describe what I'm feeling for real/baby, I paint the sky blue/my greatest creation was you."

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6VvKvr4lzQ&w=560&h=315]

On the song, Jay says of his inspiration: "You're a child of destiny/you're the child of my destiny/you're my child with the child from Destiny's Child/that's a hell of a recipe." He adds at another point, "The most beautifulest thing in this world/is daddy's little girl."

The 42-year-old also appears to get surprisingly personal, considering how comparatively private the couple are. "You don't know what swag is yet but you was made in Paris/and mama woke up the next day and shot an album package," Jay-Z says on the track. "Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/we was afraid you disappeared/but nah, baby, you magic."

And at the very end, the sound of a baby's cry. CNN has learned that the track was produced by frequent Jay-Z collaborator Pharrell Williams. If you've heard the song, what did you think?

    I dont know how I feel about them renting out the entire hospital for that amount of money. If it prevented other parents from seeing their babies then I think that is the fault of the hospital (hey they did take the money) who should have been better prepared with other options for the other parents. On the other hand I understand that celebrities need their privacy and it would not have been respected any other way. However, why not just pay for the services at a private facility which I am sure exist. I like both Beyonce and Jay Z and are very happy for them. And please beleive they are not the first celebrities to go through such extremities to protect their privacy and they won't be the last.

    I have no problem with people who are wealthy and famous. I have no problem with them needing security. The problem I have(I am a healthcare worker) is when their wants and needs come before anyone else, and when it interferes with other's lives. Making it inconvenient for the other moms and dads was a bit selfish and it is immoral and unethical to give one person special treatment over another! EVERY patient is just as important as the next, and the only priority given should be that which is given to the most critical patient first. Am I unreasonable?

    The Father was up set he could only spend 20 mins with twins as that's the rule. While leaving he saw the celebrity guards and felt it was wrong for rich people to have what he didn't. He thought by going to the press he could get money. Many people believed the lie and as word got out in the hospital. Mothers in the hospital decided they wanted attention and money so they started complaining about Beyonce. Celebrities like Tom/Katie, Angelina/Brad and other wealthy couples never had this problem. No one dare try to get money from Tom Cruse by complaining about the hold floor he blocked off at the hospital and don't even think about an apology.

    As celebrity births go this is not even that a big a deal. They are not a huge tabloid couple. I remember when Madonna had her first child like 20 yrs ago that was huge. I wish my child was being born at the same time at the same hospital. Nobody would keep me from seeing my child. Baby will prob have Jay Z's face. Apic of this child will not fetch that much money.

    While I don't subscribe to celebrity worship on any level, It's clear to me that many of the comments here are from people, who resent the success of others. It's true that I do not own a single Jay Z or Beyonce CD, but music is an art form that is entirely subjective. Whether it's hip hop or classical, it has meaning for someone on some emotional level. As for the birth of Jay-Z & Beyonce's child making headlines, WE(society) MAKE it news. Personally, this recent birth is no more or less important than the birth of anyone else's child. Whether it's Jay-Z & Beyonce or Kim K, there is a large enough market of interested people to merit the printing of these stories. To further simplify: If a sucker is born every minute, and there are 1440 minutes in a day, then that would mean 10,080 suckers by then end of one week(7 days)! That's 40,320 suckers in just one month! Well, those numbers don't begin to touch the surface of how many suckers out of roughly 300 million people "need" to know about the personal lives of their favorite celebrities. Just sayin'. LOL

    So for all the non hip-hop heads that have the audacity to say Jay-z music is crap. Please leave now. This aint for you. Homeboy has put down some of the illest rymes ever heard, and Bee forget it shes like a movie ok. Now I agree the latest stuff from both is far from the earlier stuff but that's what a couple hudred mil in the bank may do to you so I understand a bit but really to the others, that aint your business you can't understand anyway, your not hip hop and don't know hip hop. Which makes your comments unqualified. Go back to your dull, mundane life and coment on your talentless rock bands or what ever cornball billybob music u listen to. This is hip hop Everyone else in this arena maybe shouldn't be here. So I don't have to even post about the baby cause true heads know what's up. Its a good day,two of our own, now 3 and we progress. Congrats. Now if we could get some of our atheletes to keep it real. I mean ashanti,union, lathann hell even olivia. Amare, kobe and them been sleepin at the wheel,nice dime pieces. Hell if I played for the knicks I know what I would do. Buut that's another topic dif day.
    But back to the retarts: just wanted to remind you grey boys and girls if you aint hip hop stay off our d%€ck, cause it won't stop cause it can't stop so enjoy the ass whippin that hip hop provides, but don't comment. Lol.

As a fellow new father, I know there is nothing like Daddy's little girl. Maybe our kids will perform together when they grow up !

    Congrats to them. I love Beyonce, I've been a fan of her's since I was ten and she was beginning her music career in the original Destiny's Child. I'm twenty-one now and my taste in music is different and fairly removed from her form of pop music, still love her though. She's just a good-hearted person, and you can see how much she and Jay-Z love each other. I hope that family has many good tidings in the future. That said, kind of a strange name for the little bundle of joy. It sounds like a kind of common plant – like blue fern. But to each their own I guess, and Ivy is really pretty. I suppose, if the girl doesn't like her first name she could always take up the second name in its stead. I've known a couple of people who've chosen to go by their middle name in lieu of their given name. Or perhaps the child will like the distinctive name, so it may all work out rather well. Blessings to the newly arrived child.

Lenox Hill Hospital and Mr. Danza put everyone going to the hospital for services were jepordized by these occurances. I am sure Mr. Danza was notified of Beyonce's arrival and she and Jay-Z did get special treatment.

      He doesn't have a son. The child rumored to be his, is actually the child of another (married) music executive. The child looks EXACTLY like his actual father and the father"s youngest son. It is a sticky situation because the son is obviously the result of an extramarital affair so JayZ chooses to simply let rumors persist out of respect to the music executive's wife. TRUST me, I know...

      Rose-Actually that information isn't accurate. Just read an article that explains in detail that some people were attempting to enter a restricted area to gawk and take pictures of Blue. One pregnant woman (nine months) said "I wanted to see, but they wouldn't let get close enough but she is beautiful. I knew there had to be more to the story than first reported. Also, Mr. Coulon and his wife are artists/musicians (google their names, Rozz & Neil Nash Coulon) which explains him saying that he just wants an apology. He actually wants an introduction and access to JayZ and/or Beyonce.

      "You need to go back to school and learn how to correctly form sentences."

      Correct sentence structure does not include split infinitives. The proper structure for your reply is "...and learn how to form sentences correctly." Your wording "to correctly form" is incorrect in itself. The adverb "correctly" cannot be placed between the words of the basic infinitive, "to form."

      I may have been happy for them BUT when I heard they spent 1.3 million dollars to rent a hospital floor I do not like them any more! Move over everybody, The king and queen are here. All you peasants get out the way. We are having our little princess. huff huff fuss fuss... here is a million dollas we can afford it.
      When there are people out there who cant even afford a bed with a curtain around it! ARROGANT ! I hope Ivy grows up to have his face, fatwith big teeth and sing,"If i were a Boy!" her music is annoying and agitating. All you who bbuy their music laaying in that bed with a curtain around it remember YOU put them where they are. AND this is how they gonna act!!!!

      The song is simply awful and so is the name.

      THis is as bad as Tiny Tim and his wife naming their kid Tulip (you old school peeps will know what I'm talking about)
