Some proud new dads rush to Facebook to excitedly post about their new babies. Others, however, rush to the recording studio.

Superstar rapper Jay-Z posted a single about his newborn daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, just two days after he and wife Beyonce welcomed her to the world.

The song, called "Glory," not only celebrates the birth - the single was posted on Jay-Z's official site above a photo of the Empire State Building lit up with blue lights with the caption "Life just got REALLY good" - but also reveals that Beyonce had previously suffered a miscarriage.

“False alarms and false starts, all made better by the sound of your heart/All of the pain of the last time, I prayed so hard it was the last time," raps Jay-Z.

The song ends with a sample of baby Blue's cries. That's right, she's already collaborated with dad on a new single.
