Beyoncé’s Daughter Rumi Appears on ‘Cowboy Carter’ Ballad ‘Protector’

Beyoncé paid tribute to her daughters, Rumi and Blue, and son Sir on her 'Cowboy Carter' song "Protector."

On album cut “Protector,” six-year-old Rumi can be heard saying, “Mom, can I hear the lullaby please?” The query leads into an emotional acoustic ballad that sees Beyoncé celebrating her children, twins Rumi and Sir and 12-year-old Blue Ivy. She won her first Grammy at nine years old for her work on Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl,” which appeared on the Lion King: The Gift soundtrack. The album was announced with just the title Act II back in February following a big Super Bowl ad, with Beyoncé sharing two singles as well: “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages.” It features several notable collaborations along with a cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.”
