Jay z proudly share of photos of newborn blue ivy in ‘glory’ video

Back in 2012, Jay Z and Nas joined forces for a legendary show at Carnegie Hall in New York, and on Thursday (Apr. 16), we got to see backstage footage from that night, in Hov’s new video for “Glory,” which premiered exclusively on TIDAL.

But it wasn’t the musical rehearsal that was the most captivating here — it was watching Jay excitedly share photos of a newborn Blue Ivy with his friends.

We see clips of him rehearsing with Young Guru and an orchestra backstage, but when Nas and Alicia Keys join him, the first thing he does is pass along his phone, and grin from ear-to-ear while they check out a photo of his baby girl.

It’s too bad that we can’t hear the comment that Nas makes, because it really seems to crack everyone up.

Roc Nation singer Bridget Kelly also gets a glimpse of Blue.
