Blue Ivy Carter is only 18 months old, but it’s already clear she’s got her father’s taste in music.

Jay-Z, 43, says he recently started playing his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, around the house and it’s a bona fide hit with his daughter.

“She loves all the songs,” he tells Vanity Fair in its November cover story. “She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more … Daddy song.’ She s my biggest fan.”

“If no one bought the Magna Carta [album], the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy,” he adds.

Despite Blue’s love for her father’s hip hop rhymes, Jay-Z insists she’s also a fan of her mother’s music – even if Beyoncé has said otherwise.

“She does like her mother’s music – she watches [Beyoncé’s concerts] on the computer every night. But my album came out and I don t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album. … But this album was new, so we played it,” says Jay-Z, who along with his wife recently topped Forbes‘s list of highest-earning celebrity couples.

Jay-Z says his daughter’s love for his music makes him especially happy because someone that young simply can’t fake enthusiasm.

“She’s genuine, she s honest, because she doesn t know it makes me happy,” he says. “She just wants to hear it.”
