Blue Ivy Carter is the love of Beyonce’s life and the inspiration behind her new song, perfectly titled “God Made You Beautiful.”
According to repots, the balled — which we heard a sneak peek of in her Life is But a Dream documentary — leaked in full Friday. In the heartfelt record, Bey talks about the day her daughter was born and how motherhood changed her life.
“When you were born, the angels sighed in delight/ They never thought they’d see such a beautiful sight,” she sings. “You took a breath and the world was right again/ Tears were shed, how I have been blessed/ And your love it shines so bright/ You bring me back to life, back to life/ You make everything right.”
It’s not known if “God Made You Beautiful” will appear on Beyonce’s upcoming album, but you can listen to the full song below. Then click through the slides to find three other special tributes to Blue that will also make you say “aww.”
