Baby, I paint the sky blue

from Jay Z (Ft. Blue Ivy Carter) – Glory Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Blue is the name of his and Beyoncé’s daughter, supposedly named so because of the success of The Blueprint and the subsequent albums (and here I was sure his daughter would be named Brooklyn Carter…)

Her middle name is Ivy, due to Beyoncé’s love for the number 4 (Ivy = IV, Roman numerals for four). She acknowledges it as a number that is special to her because among other things her and Jay’s birthdays both fall on a 4th, they were married on the 4th, etc.

It should be noted that the Empire State Building was all blue the night Blue Ivy was born
