Jay Z Debuts ‘Glory’ Video Dedicated to Blue Ivy
After announcing the launch of TIDAL three weeks ago, Jay Z has finally released his own contribution to the music streaming service. This effort from the rapper is a special one because it is a revamped version of his song, "Glory."
Hov released the track more than three years ago in 2012, to celebrate the birth of his daughter Blue Ivy on Jan. 7, 2012. In the new video, the song is presented as a live orchestral version with the MC rhyming about entering fatherhood. The visual tugs at your heart strings and includes clips from rehearsals Jay did for his 2012 benefit gigs at Carnegie Hall for the Shawn Carter Foundation.
"The most amazing feeling I feel / Words can't describe the feeling, for real / Baby, I paint the sky blue / My greatest creation was you, you: Glory," he raps.
The "Glory" clip also finds the Brooklyn rapper showing pics of his daughter to friends like Alicia Keys, Nas and Bridget Kelly.
Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Madonna have already released exclusive content through the TIDAL streaming platform. Beyonce also released a clip of her own on the anniversary of her and Jay Z's wedding. The singer performed a new track called "Die With You."
