Blue Ivy, who appears in the song's music video with her mom, also provides vocals on the track. "Brown skin girl, your skin just like pearls," she sings at the beginning and end of the song. "The best thing in the world, never trade you for anybody else."
In addition to Blue, Bey and Jay are also parents to 2-year-old twins Sir and Rumi Carter. Beyonce's connection to her children was important to her crafting of The Gift, she revealed on ABC's September special, Beyonce Presents: Making the Gift.
"Knowing where you come from, that’s what I want for my children," she said of bringing all three kids to Africa.
She added, "It feels like I’m making peace with a part of me that’s yearning for my ancestral connection."
