‘God Made You Beautiful’-An ode to Blue Ivy & the Empowerment of Motherhood

Beyonce is known for belting out tunes to empower women to get that ring, that money, or that freakum dress, and now she presents a heartfelt ode to her daughter Blue Ivy . Her lyrical confession of love has been long awaited since the release of  Jay Z’  ‘Glory’ three days after Blue Ivy was born. ‘God Made You Beautiful’ is to be featured on her DVD release of her documentary Life Is But A Dream and there is no word yet on whether or not it will be a bonus track on 4 or her upcoming album.

The song begins with a heavenly-like melody which mirrors the feeling had by mothers when they hear their child cry for the first time and look into their eyes. It continues on with the thoughts and moments that many mothers experience as they get to know their child. The hook is reminiscent of Lauryn Hill’s Zion “Now the joy of my world is in Zion” with her giving praises to God for the beautiful gift of her daughter, “God made you beautiful, Beautiful, You’re beautiful” .  Although the track is dedicated to the love of her daughter it still stands as an empowering song for expectant mothers that await the experience of loving their child.

This song was called another ‘Halo’ by Entertainment Weekly  and they are correct as this stands to be the ’10’s version of Lauryn Hills Zion dedicated to the empowering love of motherhood.

Which song dedicated to Blue Ivy do you like better? Listen to both and sound off below.
