Jay-Z and Beyonce had a baby on Saturday. I’m still unsure of the name Blue Ivy, just too much self-involved stories surrounding the naming but it’s also kind of normal for a celebrity name. I also like to think that she was named after Blue from Old School.
Two days after the birth Jay released this new song:
People are reacting quite well to it. I have a few notes.
It’s not Jay-Z level of greatness. While I understand the sentiment and all, I just don’t think the words or any of it is any good. I also feel like the crying of Blue Ivy at the end is too personal. You know that J & B will not be releasing their photos anytime soon, they’ve always been pretty private. To hear about the conception, miscarriages and then Blue Ivy’s crying, it’s just too much. I feel perverted, like I’m listening to something that I shouldn’t be listening to.
What do you think of the song? Do you think J & B will have me killed for not liking their baby’s new single?
