The lyrics of the new song, entitled Glory, suggest Beyonce, who gave birth to Blue Ivy by caesarean section on Saturday, suffered a miscarriage before falling pregnant with their daughter. Jay-Z was by her side when she gave birth.
Some of the song’s lyrics are:
“Last time the miscarriage was so tragic, we was afraid you disappeared,” so it is hardly subtle.
Jay-Z also raps about “false alarms and false starts” but says Blue is his “greatest creation,” rapping, “The most beautifullest thing in this world is daddy’s little girl.”
The sound of a newborn babies are also recorded on the track, which also includes the lyrics:
“So there you have it, s___ happens. 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?”
So it seems Beyonce and Jay-Z have personally gone through the heartbreak of a miscarriage before the safe arrival of Blue Ivy. Congratulations to them both.
