About Glory

"Glory" is a song by American rapper Jay-Z featuring his daughter Blue Ivy Carter (credited as B. I. C.) and background vocals from Pharrell Williams. Produced by The Neptunes, it premiered on Jay-Z's official website on January 9, 2012, two days after his wife Beyoncé Knowles gave birth to the couple's first child Blue. "Glory" impacted US urban contemporary radio stations on January 17, 2012. The melodic hip hop is an emotional homage to Jay-Z's baby girl and wife. Lyrically, "Glory" is about the experience and the happiness of becoming a father for the first time. It also details the heartbreak the couple suffered over a previous miscarriage. The song opens with Blue's first heartbeat, and includes a sample of Blue's cries towards the end. The song contains samples from "The Most Beautifullest Thing In This World", written and performed by rapper Keith Murray.
