Blue Ivy Billboard Record: Baby Is Youngest on Charts

We all know that Jay-Z and Beyonce‘s bouncing baby girl Blue Ivy is destined for greatness, but maybe we thought she’d at least wait until she could wipe the drool off her chin!

After papa Jay released his ode to his newborn daughter in the form of new track ‘Glory,’ the heiress to the throne has set a new Billboard chart record. As a featured artist on her famous father’s new rap — her first cries can be heard on the song — Blue Ivy has become the youngest person ever to appear on any of the Billboard charts.

‘Glory’ debuted on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at No. 74 and was recorded when she was less than 2 days old. Blue Ivy is officially credited on the track as “B.I.C.”

It looks like Jay took a cue from the legendary Stevie Wonder while recording the rap from New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital. Wonder also captured his baby daughter Aisha’s cries on his 1976 hit ‘Isn’t She Lovely,’ only Wonder did not credit his newborn on the track.

Funnily enough, ‘Glory’ marks Jay’s 107th career entry on the charts, mirroring the birth date — Jan. 7 or 1/07 — of his daughter.
