Billboard reports that B.I.C., as Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter is credited on the track,is the youngest person to land on a Billboard chart. The song is currently #74 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Blue Ivy was born in the late hours of Saturday, meaning she was likely only hours old when her voice was recorded for the track.
The dad-daughter duo beat out Stevie Wonder and Aisha on his iconic “Isn’t She Lovely?” back in the ’70s. However, unlike B.I.C., Aisha was never credited on her dad’s track.
The site further reports that as of press time, the song’s reign on radio was expanding. It has the highest new entry on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, with 1.7 million audience impressions on 54 radio stations. In a twist of fate, the song marks her dad’s 107th entry, mirroring her Jan. 7 birth date.
Produced by Pharrell, it is a joyous and heartfelt song about fatherhood from the normally guarded Brooklyn MC. “The most amazing feeling I feel/ Words can’t describe the feeling, for real/ Baby, I’ll paint the sky blue/ My most greatest creation was you,” he raps about his newborn daughter.
There’s no shortage of heartache on the track (with references to B’s previous miscarriage and his own absentee dad), but in the end, the song really focuses on the glory of fatherhood. He even goes on to reference his wifey’s own pop-star legacy: “You’re my child with the child from Destiny’s Child/ That’s a hell of a recipe.”
