So there you have it, shit happens

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

Meaning

The phrase “shit happens” is often used to downplay bad or unfortunate events in a person’s life. The implication is that though bad things may happen, we can only prevent so much misfortune. Life comes with it’s ups and downs.

In some of the song’s most personal lines, Jay admits to difficulties in conceiving Blue Ivy. But both Jay and Bey had to overcome a whole host of difficulties (environmentally, socially, and racially) to reach what appears to be the happiest moment in both of their lives.

It’s easy to succumb to the shitty things that happen in life. But if you persevere…eventually you get magic.
