Jay-Z's song for Blue Ivy Carter, "Glory"

Have you heard the new song "Glory" penned by Jay-Z for his newborn baby girl Blue Ivy Carter?

It's rather sweet, cute, and full of emotion; even l'il Blue features, having a cry at around 3.20 mark. Listen:

The couple have just released a statement to US Weekly magazine:

Hello Hello Baby Blue! We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven.

“She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7lbs and it was the best experience of both our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”

In the song "Glory" Jay-Z reveals his wife Beyonce had suffered miscarriage, with the lyrics:

"Last time the miscarriage was so tragic, was we was afraid you disappeared."

Adding: "...All the pain of the last time, prayed so hard it was the last time."

He also reveals where the bub was conceived:

"You don't yet know what swag is, but you was made in Paris, and mama woke up the next day and mama woke up the next day and shot her album package."

Which kinda made me think: who else has penned a song for their new baby?

Well, there is this one from Fugees singer Lauryn Hill, for her son Zion:

And of course this classic 'Isn't She Lovely' from Stevie Wonder for his newborn baby girl:

And this one from John Lennon called 'Beautiful Boy':

This one, too, by James Taylor called 'Sweet Baby James':

What are your faves? Any I have missed?
