Jay-Z & Beyonce's Daughter Blue Ivy Carter Becomes Youngest Person To Ever Appear On Billboard Chart Via "Glory"

 

Blue Ivy Carter is not even a week old and already she's made history by becoming the youngest person to appear on the Billboard charts.

 

Jay-Z featured Blue Ivy's first cries at the end of "Glory," a song he recorded and released just a couple of days after Beyonce gave birth.

 

Officially billed as "featuring B.I.C.," an abbreviation of Blue Ivy Carter -- "Glory" enters Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at No. 74.

 

According to Billboard the song is Jay's 107th entry on the charts. The number is significant because it mirrors Blue Ivy's birth date of 1/07.

 

Little Blue sure knows how to make a grand entrance.


Billboard also explains why Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely" didn't get the distinction first.


Taking a page out of Stevie Wonder's proverbial book on how to be a sentimental musical dad, Jay-Z recorded his precious girl's first seconds of life -- her breathing, cries and coos -- just as Wonder did on his iconic song "Isn't She Lovely," written for his then-newborn daughter Aisha.

 

Why does B.I.C. claim the mark for youngest charted artist and not Wonder's girl? Two reasons: young Aisha was never officially credited on "Lovely" and the song did not reach a Billboard chart until Jan. 29, 1977 (when it entered Adult Contemporary at its No. 23 peak), almost two years after she was born.
