For parents who are having trouble putting their newborn babies to sleep at night, help is on the way thanks to Jay-Z. A lullaby album featuring Hov’s biggest hits is due this summer.
The album, ‘Lullaby Renditions of Jay-Z,’ features 12 of Jigga’s popular tracks transformed into baby tunes. Among the songs flipped into lullabies include ‘Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem),’ ‘Empire State of Mind,’ ‘Can’t Knock the Hustle’ and ‘Big Pimpin’.’
All the songs have been reworked and performed using xylophones, flutes and bells, so there are no actual lyrics on the album.
Some might frown at the notion of having babies listening to songs that are deemed misogynistic to women. Can you imagine your infant grooving to the melodic xylophones of ‘Big Pimpin”? What’s next, a baby song of Lil Wayne‘s ‘Rich as F—’?
But we think this a good look for Jay-Z since he loves being a dad to Blue Ivy Carter. Whenever her mother, Beyonce, is not singing a lullaby to her, Jay can throw on the album to soothe Blu Ivy to sleep.
Rockabye Baby!, a company that produces lullabies out of popular pop and rock music, will be releasing ‘Lullaby Renditions of Jay-Z’ on July 11.
A live stream and pre-order for the album are currently available on rockabyebabymusic.com.
