The Web is abuzz with talk of the newest celebrity baby in town, as Blue Ivy Carter was born to Beyoncé and Jay-Z this weekend.

Today Last.fm Trends looks at scrobbles for the new parents on Last.fm.

beyjay Last.fm Trends: A New Collaboration For Beyoncé And Jay Z

The graph above (click to enlarge) shows the couple’s scrobbles over the past nine months, with Beyoncé’s 4 gaining her a peak of over 700,000 plays in one week. Jay-Z meanwhile hit his peak with Kanye West, reaching almost 800,000 weekly scrobbles in May – but we’re sure it’s his latest collaboration that means more.

As for some tracks to celebrate the arrival, B’s “Baby Boy” was co-written with Jay-Z and has 128,783 listeners to date, although it didn’t quite predict Blue Ivy’s gender. Given the unpredictable nature of childcare, Jay-Z may have to “Change Clothes” more often: that track has seen 159,779 listeners so far. But of course, we’re hoping it will be “Sweet Dreams” for the new family, and its 459,097 listeners are sure to agree.

Learn more about Beyoncé at her Last.fm page. Meanwhile, Last.fm Trends brings you the news in scrobbles every weekday.
