She clearly got her parents’ musical talent! Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy is featured on her dad’s bonus track on his 4:44 album, and fans are going crazy over the 5-year-old’s rap debut.
The song “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family” appears on the physical 4:44 albums, which were released on Friday, July 7, and the track contains 45 straight seconds of Blue spitting rhymes. Although the music scion has previously appeared on Beyoncé’s “Blue” in 2014 and Jay-Z’s “Glory” in 2014, the new song was the first to feature an entire verse from Blue.
While it’s somewhat difficult to make out what Blue is saying, she delivered one line that stunned fans: “Never seen a ceiling in my whole life.” The new big sister also raps a refrain that sounds like “Boom shakalaka / Everything in shaka, Everything in faka.”
The internet loved it, though, and already dubbed Blue the next big thing. “Everyone: but what does Blue Ivy’s freestyle mean? Me: No one knows what it means but its provocative. It gets the people going,” one tweeter wrote. Another chimed in, “Imagine Blue Ivy being the Queen of Rap that can serve you choreography like Bey in the next generation.”
Even before the buzz about Blue’s track, Jay’s 4:44 went platinum less than a week after it was exclusively released on Tidal on Thursday, June 29. The music mogul, who welcomed twins Rumi and Sir with Beyoncé last month, has received mostly positive reviews except for 50 Cent who slammed it in a since-deleted Instagram video as “golf course music.” Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg praised the album on Instagram, but admitted that he listened to a pirated copy because he didn’t have a subscription to Tidal streaming service.
