Beyonce unexpectedly released her fifth studio album on Thursday and fans were thrilled to see her daughter Blue Ivy featured in the music video for "Blue."
The iconic pop star, 32, dropped her self-titled "visual album" minutes before midnight and it features 14 new songs and 17 music videos. Fans get to see the mommy-daughter duo sharing intimate moments in "Blue," which was filmed in Brazil.
"Make it last forever/come on baby wont you hold on to me...hold on to me/you and I together/ come on baby won't you hold on to me...hold on to me," Beyonce sings in the hook.
"Each Day, I feel so blessed to be looking at you 'cause when you open your eyes/I feel alive," she begins in the second verse.
The notoriously private singer is seen bonding with her adorable daughter, who is fathered by rapper Jay Z, for much of the clip.
By the end of the 4:35-minute video a baby voice emerges singing a part of the hook, which many fans have assumed belongs to Beyonce's 1-year-old baby girl.
The toddler is seen playing with toys and flipping through a children's book as her famous mother dotingly watches on.
"She's my road dog, She's my homey, my best friend," Beyonce once told Vogue about her and Jay Z's only child.
"I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more. Family has always been important. I've always had my mother and my father and my husband. But it's just ... Life is so much more than ... It's not defined by any of this," she explained.
The Grammy award-winning singer has spent much of this year touring as part of her Mrs. Carter World Tour, which began in April and wraps up in December. She recently spoke about having the ability to tour with baby Blue.
"It's really interesting because I'm touring with my daughter for the first time and my dream has always been to be able to balance my life and my career," Beyonce said at a press conference according to Daily Mail UK.
"I think it's the one thing that women struggle with because it's so difficult," she continued "But when I'm able to travel it makes me so proud that she's able to experience all these different cultures and meet all of these interesting people at such a young age."
