Jay-Z Reveals Beyonce Suffered A Miscarriage In Rap Dedicated To Daughter: Should He?

Do you think Jay-Z empowered women by talking about Beyonce’s miscarriage in his rap, or did he reveal a tragedy that should have remained personal?

Our hearts broke when we heard Jay-Z revealing that his wife, Beyonce, had suffered a miscarriage before delivering their first baby, Blue Ivy Carter. In his new rap, released Jan. 9, which he named “Glory,” the 42-year-old dad explained how happy he was to finally have a baby, after going through more tragic times.

“Last time the miscarriage was so tragic, we was afraid you disappeared,” Jay-Z rapped midway through the song. He also talked about “false alarms and false starts … all the pain of the last time, prayed so hard it was the last time.”

Although it seems like an incredibly personal moment to share with the world, HollywoodLife.com‘s Editor-in-Chief Bonnie Fuller believes Jay-Z’s words are empowering to women.

It’s important to know that losing a fetus during pregnancy is common and can happen to anyone — even a young, healthy celebrity like Beyonce, who’s only 30 years -old and has the best medical treatment. In fact, the American Pregnancy Association says that every year nearly 10% of women who conceive, suffer a miscarriage.

Even though it was sad to hear that Beyonce and Jay-Z lived through this nightmare, it’s encouraging for other women to know that you can suffer a miscarriage and still go on to deliver a beautiful, healthy baby in a subsequent pregnancy.

What did you think about Jay-Z’s revelation? Sound off below.

It’s truly very complicated in this full of activity life to listen news on Television, thus I just
use internet for that reason, and get the most up-to-date news.

Lemarie,
I have a daughter around your age .
This is not to bully you online , please take this as an advice.
I like that she is a role model for you but for you age , I think you should not concern yourself with this kind of stuff as far how she had her child …
You know you have mentioned that you could not spell ,I think you should take the time off of Beyonce and use it more on your spelling.
With Love, A mother.

You guys are strange. do you all even listen to their music. Listen better. He not making the song for us anyway. He is an artist and that is how he expresses himself. Its for the love of his daughter. Rather beyonce had a miscarage or not. Not the point.

I agree. I mean if Beyonce’ doesn’t mind, and chances are she likely heard the song before the release, then it’s what they agreed to reveal. Other than that, it was HIS call to share their personal experience and he (speaking from his heart) felt compelled to make his point about how overjoyed he felt when their daughter was born. It’s out, it’s out so like my mother would say, things you have no control over or what’s already been done it’s no point in worrying about because it’s already been done. Meanwhile, they would love and appreciate having their daughter so much more….and that’s what matters.

I think he was talking about a miscarage with his old girlfriend from years ago. It hurt him he had it in a older song of his. Song cry or this cant be life. Idk. But it hurt j so they were prob scared of that.

However way you can get something off of your chest, or off of you mind, or to share with other people, is no wrong doing, people judged them enough before she went to the hospital, they now have a daughter in heaven with my daughter. i would like to tell them sorry for their loss, and that the song is beautiful.

Congratulations to the Carters! May God bless your family.

The song is definitely a beautiful song. Reminds me of Stevie Wonder’s song to his daughter when you heard her crying on the track.

On another note, there are two sides. Yes, this is empowering for those women who had miscarriages. However, for a couple that is so “private” why reveal that…..could it be a sympathy tactic since it seems like a lot of people are pissed about how they locked down the hospital because of her birth. Although I believe the hospita? Is at fault, Jay and Bey is wrapped up in this. Both must do some serious damage control.

Think people think…….

@Sidney so sorry to hear of your losses. Jay Z revealing his and Beyonce’s previous loss in the song is meant to show women who go through it that they’re not alone it’s not 40 years ago when nobody talked about this kind of stuff Publically for example Vanessa Redgrave didn’t admit she suffered a miscarriage in 1971 until her autobiography in 1997 some 26 years later and some stars of her era have still never openly spoken about simillar experiences.

If it is cool with his wife to reveal the information, it’s cool. Probably did not want to reveal it for fear of jinxing the process until they had sucessfully delivered a healthy live child. Either way it is encouraging for a woman to know, cause often they feel alone and isolated when miscarriages happen. Besides it is uplifting to recieve info that you need to know set to a good beat!

I think the song is absolutely beautiful! It brought tears to my eyes! He sounds like a doting father, who is so grateful to finally have the blessing of a beautiful baby! He sounds almost relieved! I think the song was perfect and little Blue will know everything that her parents had to go through to get her and she was WANTED and loved! congrats to the new parents!

Why is he bringing this out in a rap song now? He didn’t talk about it when it happened and should not ruin a joyous occasion by talking about it now.

As a woman that had two miscarriages in the last five months feels that revealing this personal information takes a lot of strength and reminds me that I’m not alone and there is hope to one day have a healthy baby. I wish them all the best.
