Sharing a photo collage of herself and her dad, she wrote:

"Your daddy know you're a flame

Your daddy know you're a flame

Your daddy know you're a flame

Your daddy know you're a flame

"Even to the angels it may sound like a lie

For you child

He has the troops and extra backup standing by

For you child

For you he's the best he can be

For you child

For you he's the best he can be

Oh child don't you know

Your daddy love comes with a life time guarantee."
