With parents like Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Blue Ivy Carter was born to be a star, and the newborn baby girl is wasting zero time getting there. Less than a week after her birth, Blue has already dealt with haters and now she's cracked the Billboard charts. She just became the youngest person ever to appear on Billboard, after her dad's song "Glory," on which she gets a credit as "B.I.C.," entered the R&B/Hip-hop charts this week. 


While the song, posted online by Jay-Z on Tuesday, isn't actually for sale, it's racked up enough spins on radio to claim 1.7 million audio impressions, according to Nielsen. That puts the track at No. 74 on this week's chart.


"Glory" has served as Blue's introduction to the world, with the sounds of her cooing and crying mere hours after birth playing out at the end of the song. The song may have been inspired by Stevie Wonder, who also recorded his baby girl on the 1976 classic "Isn't She Lovely?" That song didn't enter the Billboard charts until the following year, however.
