Beyonce and Jay-Z
In January 2012, hip-hop’s royal couple Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed their first child, daughter Blue Ivy Carter, into the world. But it was through his heartfelt tribute song, “Glory,” released two days after Blue Ivy’s birth, that it was revealed for the first time that the superstar mega-couple had previously suffered a miscarriage. “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/ We was afraid you’d disappear/ But nah baby, you magic,” rapped Jay-Z.
