Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s baby is already a record-breaker: Backup gurgles on the rap lullaby “Glory” make her the youngest artist to hit the Billboard charts.
Blue Ivy Carter will be all of five days old when the single, which her father posted online Monday, debuts Thursday at No. 74 on Billboard’s R&B/hip-hop hit list.
“It’s historical. The charts are almost 72 years old, so to be the youngest ever to chart is something,” said Bill Werde, Billboard’s editorial director.
Blue Ivy surpasses Jordy Lemoine, who at 5 years old debuted at No. 82 in 1993 with his song “Dur Dur D’Etre Bebe!” (“It’s Tough To Be A Baby!”). Jay-Z mixed in the first sounds of his daughter after her birth Saturday at Lenox Hill Hospital, revealing in the song that she was conceived in Paris after an earlier miscarriage. (nydailynews)
