"Daughters" is a song by American rapper Nas, released on July 17, 2012, by Def Jam Recordings as the third single from his 2012 album Life Is Good. He wrote it as a reflection on the growth of his daughter Destiny Jones. One of the first songs recorded for the album, Nas worked with producer No I.D. and recorded at several Los Angeles recording studios.
A highly personal song by Nas, "Daughters" features lyrics about raising a daughter and personal vignettes about fatherhood. Nas' lyrics address his daughter's behavioral problems and are self-critical of his parenting skills. The song draws on shimmering soul music and contains samples of Cloud One's 1979 song "Dust to Dust" and Wayne McGhie and the Sounds of Joy's 1970 song "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye". "Daughters" was released to positive reviews from music critics, who complimented its subject matter and Nas' honest lyrics, and earned Nas Grammy Awards nomination for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.
