Any parent knows that when it comes to bedtime rituals, it’s almost always a losing battle. Getting your babies to sleep can often be a nightmarish heck not only for you but also for the little one. Unless of course you happen to be one of those oh-so-lucky parents who got a babe that likes to sleep.
For the rest of us, we’ll do anything to get our kids to sleep. And that often involves listening and singing the same nursery rhymes and lullabies over and over again. So wouldn’t it be nice if we had something that we actually enjoyed listening to that would put the babies to sleep?
Well, calling all the sleepy babies because Beyoncé — who is expecting twins herself — is the latest musical celebrity to make her music available on RockabyeBaby!, a website that sells lullaby versions of many popular musical hits.
The site announced that as of Feb. 24, “Single Ladies,” Hold Up” and “Crazy In Love” are just some of the newest songs to join a growing list of baby-friendly renditions for sale. You can hear snippets of them all right here, and we have to say we’re excited. Given how many times we’ve sung “Rockabye baby” and “Patty-Cake” the last little while, we’re totally anticipating these releases.
Beyoncé’s hits join the likes of Adele, Aerosmith, Bjork, Black Sabbath, Jay Z, Michael Jackson and more. Like the others, her lullaby renditions will consist of no lyrics, just the smooth, soft sound of the music itself lulling the baby (and probably you) to sleep.
The album is currently available for presale on the RockabyeBaby! site. A CD retails for $16.98 U.S.; the good news is that it will ship to Canada… the bad news is that it will cost a whopping extra $24.20 U.S. Luckily there’s also an MP version for download that will only run you $11.99.
No word on whether Beyoncé will actually use the music to help her own babies get some shuteye when they come, but hey — it’s Bey. She can pretty much do whatever she wants.
