Beyoncé and Jay-Z's 9-year-old daughter has just won her first Grammy award.
Blue Ivy Carter took home the Best Music Video trophy for Brown Skin Girl—a track from Queen Bey’s The Lion King: The Gift album. “Since Blue Ivy is credited as a featured artist and songwriter on the track—she performs a couple of lines on the song’s outro—she’s officially a winner, alongside her mom and collaborator WizKid,” according to HuffPost.
The video, which features familiar faces like Lupita Nyong’o and Kelly Rowland among others, puts the spotlight on the gloriousness of dark-skinned beauties. It beat Life Is Good by Future featuring Drake, Lockdown by Anderson Paak, Adore You by Harry Styles, and Goliath by Woodkid in the same category.
This makes Blue Ivy the second youngest in Grammy history to win an award, next to Leah Peasall of The Peasall Sisters “who won at age 8 for her credit on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack,” as per Vulture.
A report by Entertainment Tonight noted that Blue Ivy has won awards from the BET, Soul Train, and NAACP for the same piece.
