“Glory” is a song by American rapper Jay-Z featuring his daughter Blue Ivy Carter (credited as B.I.C.) and background vocals from Pharrell Williams. Produced by The Neptunes, it premiered on Jay-Z’s official website LifeandTimes.com on January 9, 2012, two days after his wife Beyoncé Knowles gave birth to the couple’s first child Blue. “Glory” impacted US urban contemporary radio stations on January 17, 2012. The melodic hip hop is an emotional homage to Jay-Z’s baby girl and wife. Lyrically, “Glory” is about the experience and the happiness of becoming a father for the first time. It also details the heartbreak the couple suffered over a previous miscarriage. The song opens with Blue’s first heartbeat and includes a sample of Blue’s cries towards the end. The song contains samples from “The Most Beautifullest Thing In This World”, written and performed by rapper Keith Murray.

Lyrics

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
You, glory

False alarms and false starts
All made better by the sound of your heart
All the pain of the last time
I prayed so hard it was the last time
Your mama said that you danced for her
Did you wiggle your hands for her?
Glory! Glory! Glory! Sorry
Everything that I prayed for
God’s gift, I wish I would’ve prayed more
God makes no mistakes, I made a few
Rough sledding here and there, but I made it through
I wreak havoc on the world
Get ready for part two
A younger, smarter faster me
So a pinch of Hov, a whole glass of Bey
Glory, yeah

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

Your Grandpop died of nigga failure
Then he died of liver failure
Deep down he was a good man
Goddamn I can’t deliver failure
Bad-ass little Hov
Two years old shopping on Savile Row
Wicked-ass little B, hard not to spoil you rotten, looking like little me
The most beautifulest thing in this world
Is daddy’s little girl
You don’t yet know what swag is
But you was made in Paris
And mama woke up the next day
And shot her album package
Last time the miscarriage was so tragic
We was afraid you’d disappear
But nah, baby you magic (voilà)
So there you have it, shit happens
Just make sure the plane you on is bigger
Than your carry-on baggage
Everybody go through stuff
Life is a gift love, open it up
You’re a child of destiny
You’re a child of my destiny
You’re my child with the child from Destiny’s Child
That’s a hell of a recipe
Glory! Glory! Glory! Sorry

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
You, you, you
