Blue Ivy Carter is Born, Announces Record Deal
Just days after announcing the birth of their child, Blue Ivy Carter, on Saturday January 7th, new parents Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles have announced that their daughter has signed an exclusive recording contract with dad's record label Roc-A-Fella Records.
Ivy Carter will release six albums between now and the time she turns 14 and will net an estimated $100 million for the deal she inked shortly after her umbilical cord was cut. Mom and baby are reportedly doing well at home and Blue Ivy Carter is reportedly looking forward to getting into the studio as soon as possible, even hinting that heavy hitters like Kanye West and Lil Wayne are already slated to appear in guest spots on her upcoming debut album.
Blue Ivory Carter's first album, tentatively titled "Just Born" is expected be pre-sold on iTunes in a manner similar to Kanye West and Jay-Z's most recent collaboration, "Watch The Throne," and Beyoncé says that Blue Ivy will likely embark on an international tour to promote the album, provided there are no unforeseen complications like diaper rash or colic.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé also suggested that Blue Ivy Carter is actively seeking endorsement offers with an eye toward diversifying her talents beyond the music industry, but her parents have cautioned her not too get to far ahead of herself.
