Blue Ivy Carter Becomes Youngest Person to Grace Billboard Charts
Less than a week old, and Blue Ivy Carter is already making history.
She is credited as a collaborator on Jay-Z’s newly recorded song, “Glory,” which the rapper wrote about his daughter – and which is billed as “featuring B.I.C.,” an abbreviation of Blue Ivy Carter.
Billboard likens “Glory” to Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely,” which Wonder wrote about his newborn daughter Aisha back in February 1975. But Aisha wasn’t listed on the credits, and the song didn’t hit Billboard charts until almost two years later.
The magazine also notes an uncanny coincidence: “Glory” marks Jay-Z’s 107th career entry on the Billboard charts, mirroring his daughter’s Jan. 7 birthdate.
