When your mom’s R&B queen Beyonce and your dad is self-professed “best rapper alive” Jay Z, you probably have some good tunes playing around the house. But who does toddler daughter Blue Ivy prefer to rock out to?
According to a new interview with Vanity Fair, Jay says Beyonce says (you still with us here?) that Blue prefer’s daddy’s music. J wisely refutes that…kinda: “That’s not true. She does like her mother’s music -- she watches [Beyoncé’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. 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.”
Okay, that kind of makes us melt. And then HOVA gets decidedly un-gangsta talking about the fact that her thumbs-up means more to him than record sales:
“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 cliché. 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.”
Up next: a Jay Z children’s album?
