Blue Ivy Carter becomes youngest ever on Billboard

January 11, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
Younger than 1 week old, Blue Ivy Carter is already making music history.

Thanks to her rapper dad Jay-Z featuring her on his new song, "Glory," Blue became the youngest person to ever appear on the Billboard charts.

Jay-Z released the song about his first-born child with wife Beyonce on Monday, and it was an instant hit. The song, which credits B.I.C., features the sound of Blue's cries at the end.

The song's refrain is "The most amazing feeling I feel/Words can't describe what I'm feeling for real/ Maybe I paint the sky blue/My greatest creation was you. You. Glory."

The song is set to enter Billboard's chart next week at No. 74.

Blue was born Saturday, and her parents confirmed her birth Monday.
