jay-z*New daddy, Jay-Z, confirmed he’s going on ‘maternity leave’ to spend some time with his baby Blue Ivy.

He’s taking a break from music for now to enjoy his life with his new family.

“I thought I would be more inspired to have all these new feelings to talk about, but I really just want to hang out with my daughter,” Jay-Z told Billboard Monday. “I want to enjoy this time for what it is.”

Right now, fans will only enjoy “Glory,” his dedication to Blue. He’s not revealed if an album this year is in the works.

But you never know. He said he’ll return to the studio if he get’s that itch.

“I’m sure that bug to get back in the studio will come back at some point,” says Jay Z.
