Covering the November issue of Vanity Fair, Jay-Z gives a revealing interview about his life and opensbeing a first-time dad to 20-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
The rapper admits he doesn’t play his music around the house, but his daughter did fall in love with his twelfth studio album, Magna Carta . . . Holy Grail.
“She does like her mother’s music — she watches [Beyonce's concerts] on the computer every night. But my album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album — she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house,” Jay Z explains, adding, “But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more . . . Daddy song.’ She’s my biggest fan. If no one bought the Magna Carta [album], the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy. And that’s not like a cliche. I’m really serious. Just to see her — ‘Daddy song, more, Daddy.’ She’s genuine, she’s honest, because she doesn’t know it makes me happy. She just wants to hear it.”
