Billboard says that thanks to her dad, Jay-Z, featuring her on his new song, “Glory,” Blue becomes the youngest person to ever appear on its chart.

“Glory,” the Jay-Z track released two days after the birth of daughter Blue Ivy Carter, has debuted at number 74 on Billboard’s chart of the top 100 R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in the country, New York Post reports.

The song is credited to “Jay-Z, featuring B.I.C” and includes baby Carter cooing just a few minutes after birth, this makes Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter the youngest person ever to chart in Billboard history.

The song’s refrain is “The most amazing feeling I feel/Words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real/ Maybe I paint the sky blue/My greatest creation was you. You. Glory.”

Acording to the UK’s Daily Mail, it’s only fitting that Blue should already appear in the spotlight given her parents’ award-winning track record.

Jay-Z has won a plethora of trophies, including 15 Grammy Awards.

His wife of over three years, 30-year-old Beyonce, has won 16 Grammy Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, amongst other accolades.

At the same time Blue Ivy Carter draws attention not only by appearing on the chart.

Rapper 50 Cent took to Twitter to post mock photos of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s newborn baby, possibly reigniting a feud between the two hip hop stars, ABC informs.

The rapper posted the Photoshopped images earlier this week, which feature a baby with Jay-Z’s face superimposed on it with the message, “Yal play to much congratulations to JAYZ and Beyonce BABY #BlueIvyCarter IS GEORGOUS.”

The rapper posted follow-up tweets, seemingly indicating that he did not create the images: “I would never make a picture like that its all over my time line yal play to much I’m sure Jay is the happiest he’s ever been in his life.”

He then posted about his own child’s birth: “I remember when MARQUISE was born I was so happy. I want to have another kid one day.”

There has been bad blood between the two rappers since 50 Cent said that Jay-Z only became famous when he married pop superstar Beyonce in 2008. Although by the time the two wed in 2008, Jay-Z had already released 10 albums, several of which reached number one on the Billboard charts.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, also posted some advice to the new parents: “they will pay a million dollars for a picture of that baby — trust me.”

Rumors have been circulating since Beyonce gave birth to Blue Ivy on Saturday night that the couple are shopping the first images of the newborn around to magazines for a multi-million dollar payday.

The couple reportedly left New York’s Lenox Hill hospital with baby Blue Ivy in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
