The rapper recently sat down with Vanity Fair and talked about his child’s reaction when he played his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, at home.

“She does like her mother [Beyonce’s] music – she watches [Beyonce’s concerts] on the computer every night,” he says.

“But my album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album — she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house. But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more . . . Daddy song.’ She’s my biggest fan. If no one bought the Magna Carta [album], the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy. And that’s not like a cliche. I’m really serious. Just to see her — ‘Daddy song, more, Daddy.’ She’s genuine, she’s honest, because she doesn’t know it makes me happy. She just wants to hear it.”

In the interview Jay-Z also talks about wooing Beyoncé before they started dating.

“Well, you know, you’ve got to try first. You got to dazzle…wine and dine….she’s a charming southern girl, you know, she’s not impressed. But I would have definitely had to be this cool,” he said.
