Eight-year-old Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of entertainers Jay Z and Beyonce has made history as the youngest Grammy nominee.
This is thanks to her contribution to her mother’s song “Brown Skin Girl,” which earned her a BET Award earlier this year.
The eight-year-old won the Her Award at the BET Awards for her contribution to “Brown Skin Girl,” along with her mother Beyoncé, SAINt JHN, and WizKid.
The Her Award celebrates R&B and neo soul, having previously been won by Beyoncé in 2016 for “Formation.” Beyoncé’s sister—and Blue’s aunt—Solange won the following year for “Cranes in the Sky.”
Interestingly, Beyonce got the most nods for this year’s 2021 Grammy Awards with nine nominations.
Her hit, Brown Skin Girl, was nominated in the ‘Best Music Video’ category, and Blue Ivy has made history as a result.
This is not the first time that Blue Ivy is getting credit for her parents work as she has appeared on her father, Jay-Z’s songs “Glory” and “Family Feud,” while also guesting on her mother’s tracks “Daddy Lessons” and “Blue.”
She appeared with both of them on their joint project, The Carters, on “SALUD!” and “BOSS” as well.
