Blue Ivy Carter is 18 months old now, but the baby joy — and tears — haven’t stopped for her proud parents Beyonce and Jay-Z. Indeed, in a new, emotional commercial for his album Magna Carta Holy Grail, Jay-Z is seen choking back tears speaking with legendary music producer Rick Rubin about his little girl, whom he and Beyonce, 31, welcomed after a miscarriage. “[She’s] something that we both created, you know, we still marvel at her,” the rapper, 43, says.
The toddler, and Jay-Z’s intense pressure to be a present and loving father (rejecting the bad example set by his own dad) inspired the song “Jay Z Blue,” he continues in the frank chat with his friend.
“It deals with, you know, my pop left when I was young, so he didn’t teach me how to be a man nor how to raise a child or treat a woman,” Beyonce’s husband of five years confesses tearfully. “So, of course, my karma, the two things I needed I don’t have, right?”
“And I have a daughter,” the emotional mogul says. “It’s the paranoia of not being a great dad.”
