Beyoncé and Jay Z excited fans early Sunday morning when the happy couple took to Instagram to share new photos of their adorable 3-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, as they enjoy their sunny weekend outdoors.
E! News reports that Beyoncé shared a few new photos of Blue Ivy and husband Jay Z via Instagram on Sunday in which the toddler plays outside with her parents donning a cute, white floral getup and rocking two matching white bows in her hair.
In one photo, Beyoncé shows off her flawless beauty while holding daughter Blue Ivy close to her as the duo pose together in a wicker chair.
The next photo shows father Jay Z playing with his daughter outdoors in which the rapper extends his hands to his daughter as she laughs and runs towards her dad while sporting a pink skirt, matching black cardigan and leggings, and some very stylish sneakers.
In the last pic, Beyoncé and daughter Blue Ivy stop to admire the gorgeous scenery of a rose-filled garden in which Beyoncé leans down to smell one of the beautiful pink flowers while daughter Blue looks on.
“Happy Sunday,” Beyoncé captioned the photo, giving fans a glimpse into the family’s fun-filled end to the weekend.
Beyoncé and Jay’s sweet family photos come on the heels of good news released earlier this week that confirm the news that Beyoncé’s music would remain on Jay Z’s music streaming service, Tidal, Fortune confirms.
Sony CEO Doug Morris released a statement earlier this week that denied reports suggesting the label was preparing to remove Beyoncé and other artists’ music from Tidal due to lack of negotiation regarding streaming rights between Tidal and the label.
However, Morris issued a statement denying the label’s plans to remove Beyoncé’s music from the service while adding his well-wishes to Jay Z for the success of his new project, Rolling Stone confirms.
“Jay Z is a friend and business associate for many years. I have always admired his business acumen, his entrepreneurship and his passion for music. All of our content, including Beyoncé, is available through the Tidal service, and we have announced no plans to remove our catalog from Tidal. Like all of our other partners, we are rooting for Jay and Tidal to succeed.”
Beyoncé was one of many stars who joined Jay Z on stage during Tidal’s all-star launch party to sign a “declaration” in support of the service last month.
As for other reports that slammed Sony for focusing solely on the outcome of Beyoncé’s music in regards to the music streaming service, a source close to Beyoncé reveals that Sony’s decision to negotiate with Tidal would impact all of its artists, not just Beyoncé.
“I don’t know that it’s even completely accurate. Sony is regularly negotiating with partners. They took that point and obviously focused on one artist, which is inappropriate as well. This is a Sony Music issue and it’d be across Sony Music.”
While Tidal has been met with mixed reviews, both from users and artists, it appears Beyoncé and Jay Z are resting easy this weekend as they celebrate another musical victory.
