"Last time the miscarriage was so tragic," Jay-Z raps in the tune released on his website. "We was afraid you'd disappear but nah baby, you magic."
Blue Ivy stars in the hip-hop homage to herself. Jay-Z splices in a recording of her crying toward the end.
Brooklyn-native Jay-Z, vows in the tune to make Blue a happy little girl -- in contrast to his own troubled childhood, which was marred by the departure of his dad, Adnes Reeves. Reeves walked out on the family when Jay-Z was 11, the rap icon sings. But the pain caused by an absent pop and the miscarriage were wiped out, Jay-Z sings, after hearing Blue's first heartbeat.
