In a conversation with Gayle King, Jay talked about his first-born daughter and how proud he is of her growth.

"She’s been born into a life she didn’t ask for," he said.

"So since she was born, she’s been in scrutiny and the public eye and everyone having an opinion of even a little girl, how she keeps her hair," he added.

"So for her to be on that stage and reclaim her power, and the song is called ‘My Power,’ you can’t write a better script."
