HEAR IT: Blue Ivy raps with JAY-Z in leaked '4:44' bonus track

JAY-Z and Beyoncé better watch their throne. Daughter Blue Ivy Carter’s on track to become the next big name in hip hop royalty.

The 5-year-old will make a guest appearance on physical copies of her dad’s recently released album, “4:44.” A preview of a track titled, “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family,” leaked on Thursday.

The first portion of the audio is Blue Ivy rapping solo. After the refrain JAY-Z, 47, joins her to rap about his lineage, his relationship with Beyoncé and his qualms about Donald Trump as president of the United States.

“More worried about Trump than anyone overseas, feel me?” he raps.

On Thursday Universal confirmed that three bonus tracks — including “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family” — would be added to physical copies of “4:44.” The track titles, along with information about each song including collaborators, currently appear on their site.

The site suggests James Blake, an indie musician who’s collaborated with Beyoncé, Chance the Rapper and more, will also be featured on “4:44.” According to Universal’s track list, he and JAY-Z teamed up for a bonus track titled, “MaNyfaCedGod.”

“4:44” went platinum five days after its June 30 release on Tidal, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.

This isn’t Blue Ivy’s first foray into the music business. In fact, she regularly makes appearances on projects alongside parents JAY-Z and Beyoncé.

In 2012, JAY-Z sampled audio of Blue Ivy crying for a track called, “Glory.” She then appeared on Beyoncé’s single, “Blue,” though this “4:44” bonus track marks the first time she’s showcased her abilities as a rapper.
