“All My Life” And Other Songs Singers Wrote For Their Children
On January 7, 2012 Jay Z became a father. There by Beyonce’s side to welcome their first child together into the world, Jay wasted no time paying homage to his wife and daughter. Two days later, he released the song “Glory.” Normally very guarded with his feelings, the Brooklyn emcee rapped about the joys of becoming a father for the first time and detailed the pain and heartbreak the couple went through during a previous miscarriage. The song, which opened with Blue Ivy’s heartbeat, also included a sample of the newborn crying at the end.
