Just in case you were still skeptical, Blue Ivy Carter’s musical debut was in no way planned or forced. Jay-Z revealed the depth of his oldest daughter’s amazing talent during a recent Live Instagram session.

“I just started doing something, and she went and she got the headphones and she climbs on the little stool. And then she just starts rapping,” Jay revealed.



Blue’s segment on her father’s latest track, ‘4:44,’ isn’t the first time that the masses have heard her on a record. Jay made Blue the youngest recording artist in 2012 when he featured her cries on his hit track ‘Glory.’ Blue was only a few days old when the track debuted and many fans marked her as one with a bright future in the music industry back then.

They may just be right in their predictions as Jay-Z told fans that his daughter understands the basic components of a hit record at just 5-years-old. “The pockets she was catching,” the star dad gushed. “Five minutes, five minutes of her doing that. I’m talking about amazing pockets. She understands the concepts of a hook. She’s five [years-old].”

Perhaps Rumi and Sir, Blue’s little brother and sister, will join her in the studio one day. Jay revealed why he and wife Beyonce named their twins in like manner.


“Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter,” Jay shared. “Sir was like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir.”

Will Jay-Z use different rearing practices with his son? “If I’m being honest, yeah. I try to say no, but [yeah],” the celebrity father admitted. Rumi and Sir Carter were born on July 13, 2017. They are Beyonce and Jay-Z’s second and third child.
