Blue Ivy Sets Billboard Record, Too Much?
Blue Ivy Carter is now officially the youngest person to appear on the Billboard charts after lending her vocals (crying) to her daddy’s new song, “Glory.” Baby Blue is credited as “B.I.C.” on the track which debuted on the R&B/Hip Hop songs chart at number 74 after it’s release Monday.
Interestingly, Blue Ivy dethroned Steve Wonder’s daughter Aisha. As a newborn, she appeared on Stevie’s classic, “Isn’t She Lovely,” but B.I.C knocked her out of the top spot for two reasons, according to Billboard: “Young Aisha was never officially credited on ‘Lovely’ and the song did not reach a Billboard chart until Jan. 29, 1977 (when it entered Adult Contemporary at its No. 23 peak), almost two years after she was born.”
At just a few hours old, I think it will be hard for any other baby to top this record, not that they should try. But is all this “fame” too much? I was a little surprised Jay Z released the song so soon considering the couple once prided itself on being top secret and non-attention seeking, but you know what they say, a baby changes everything.
