Beyonce Gets Tender on ‘God Made You Beautiful’

New track accompanies ‘Life Is But a Dream’ DVD

Beyoncé offered the first taste of her new track, “God Made You Beautiful,” in a trailer for the DVD of her documentary Life Is But a Dream at the end of October. The full song emerged this weekend as a tender, expansive ballad for her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

The song opens with an echoey a cappella chorus before the beat kicks in with the lyrics “When you were born the angels sighed with delight/ They never thought they’d seen such a beautiful sight.” Strings, pianos runs and hand-claps punctuate further lyrics about kissing little feet and perfect smiles.

A download of the track will be included, along with bonus concert footage, in the Life Is But a Dream DVD set, which comes out on November 25th. Although it’s not clear yet whether the song will be included on Beyoncé’s forthcoming album, it joins “Grown Woman,” “Bow Down/I Been On” and “Standing On the Sun” for new Bey material released this year.
