Perhaps it's the too-close discomfort of being party to someone else's precious moment, but "Glory," the new Jay-Z single featuring the artist formerly known as baby bump, Blue Ivy, is kind of unsettling. With muffled cooing that sounds like it was recorded in Beyonce utero, the life-creation-rap-revelation gushes like an amniotic fluid-filled cheese ball.
Brand spanking new, the 1-day-old wunderkind can be heard wailing toward the end of the track. The Knowles/Carter combo kid is already embracing her destiny('s child -- yes, there's a line in the song about that...), getting an early jump on recording artist superstardom. Or maybe she'll want to be a professional roller skater. Too soon to tell.
Jay-Z recently showed Los Angeles who its daddy was with a multiple dates Staples Center tour stop on the Kanye West co-headlining concert circus, "Watch the Throne."
