The 'Young Forever' singer says he wishes the best for the rapper after the birth of his first child several weeks ago.
Mr. Hudson says he can't wait to meet Jay-Z and Beyonce's daughter Blue Ivy Carter and wishes the couple congratulations following the birth of their new arrival.
The 'Supernova' singer has worked with the '99 Problems' rapper several times in the past, most recently on 'Watch The Throne' track 'Why I Love You'.
"I just want to meet the child, you know, already a recording artist at three days old," the singer told Capital FM's showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes.
Jay-Z used samples of his newborn daughter's voice on tribute single 'Glory', which was released only several days after her birth on 7th January.
"I just hope to meet her soon," he continued. "It's so cute. Congratulations to them, lots of love."
The 'Young Forever' singer admitted although he had been in contact with Jay-Z since the rapper became a father he still hasn't sent them a celebratory present.
"That's a good point, I should do," Mr Hudson said. "Maybe I'll wait until I'm over there but that would be a good idea."
Mr Hudson is currently working on his third studio album.
