Blue Ivy Carter Is Now The Youngest Person To Appear On The ‘Billboard’ Charts
We all know Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby Blue Ivy Carter will go on to do great things — we just had no idea she’d be doing those things so quickly. Not even a week old, Blue Ivy Carter is the youngest person ever to appear on a Billboard chart, as Jay-Z’s ode to his daughter “Glory” (which features the delivery-room cries of newborn Blue under her given pseudonym “B.I.C.”) debuted at #74 on the Rap/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Jay-Z isn’t the only artist to feature their baby on a track — Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” begins with the cries of his daughter Aisha. However, as Billboard notes, Wonder’s little girl was not officially credited on his song, and the single did not appear on the charts until 1977, almost two years after she was born. So Bey and Jay’s offspring holds the record, and we expect her to for quite some time — at least until someone records the sounds a fetus makes while still in the womb.
In other Babeyonce news (and there will be Babeyonce news pretty much every day of this child’s life), Jimmy Kimmel decided to parody Daddy Hova’s heartfelt track by adding his wife’s screams while in labor. Consider this the remix.
