Blue Ivy Gets Her Own Lullaby
An outfit called the Jingle Punks Hipster Orchestra has recorded a sweet lullaby for Blue Ivy Carter that creatively weaves together relaxing, instrumental string arrangements of several hit songs by the baby's parents, Beyonce and Jay-Z.
The orchestra uses a formula of "4 strings and an 808" to turn hip-hop tunes into easy listening. A member of the orchestra opens the video by saying, "They say that playing classical for your child is good for their development, so we took it upon ourselves to make a lullaby for Blue Ivy."
The intro is followed by the opening notes of Jay's 'Dirt Off Your Shoulder' played on violin. That song transitions nicely into Bey's 'Crazy in Love.' The medley also features 'Irreplaceable,' 'Izzo (H.O.V.A.),' 'Halo' and 'Big Pimpin' before finishing with 'Empire State of Mind.'
This medley would be pretty awesome even if Jay-Z and Beyonce didn't have a baby, but the fact that Blue Ivy now has a sweet lullaby made from mom and dad's music makes it even cooler. Of all the gifts that fans and celebs have been sending Blue Ivy, this might be the most imaginative. And the most practical, if she needs something to help her catch some Zs!
