As well as celebrating his daughter’s birth, Jay-Z also revealed in the track that Beyonce had previously suffered a miscarriage before becoming pregnant with Blue Ivy Carter.

He revealed this in the song’s lyrics, which read: “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/We was afraid you’d disappear/But nah baby you magic”.
