Lullabies just got a whole lot more street cred.
Jay-Z, who recently became a father, is about to have 12 of his most classic singles immortalized into Lullabies for children through Rockabye Baby! , who releases a series of baby-friendly Rock and Rap albums and has remade the material of more than 50 artists into lullabies. Other artists who have had material reworked by Rockabye Baby! include Kanye West, Bob Marley and The Beatles. Television host Ellen DeGeneres says the series “puts [kids] to sleep with cool music that you’ll want to hear as well,” according to Rockabye Baby.
