Blue Ivy Continues Music Career With Vocals On A Huge Album
This baby has been topping charts since she was born.
As the daughter of music royalty, some would say that Blue Ivy is destined for stardom. When Jay Z's "Glory"—a song that featured Blue's first cries upon first being born—became a hit, Blue Ivy became the youngest person to ever make the Billboard charts.
Now, baby Blue is back at it, and has contributed guest vocals to Coldplay's upcoming seventh album, A Head Full of Dreams. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, frontman Chris Martin revealed that Blue and ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow will be featured on the album, along with Beyonce, Tove Lo, Noel Gallagher, and other family members and friends. Many of the collabs will be on choir-style choruses.
Martin explained that everyone who's featured on the album plays an important part in their lives. "Inclusiveness is the key thing, and it all comes from that 'Guest House' poem [by 13th century poet Rumi]. The 'choir' started with my two kids coming in after school and recording. We recorded Blue Ivy Carter in New York when her mom Beyoncé was in the studio. It comes from learning about Greek tragedy, where the chorus chimes in at times. To me, when we use that sound, it's to affirm what I'm saying. 'We agree with you, Chris. Keep singing.'"
Both Bey and Blue will be featured on the album. Maybe Jay Z was busy?
