When they say “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” … and Blue Ivy Carter, daughter of singer Beyoncé and Jay -Z, aged just 8, received her first Grammy Award nomination for the song Brown Skin Girl. A piece in which she sings and even helped her mom write it. When the nominations for 2021 were released in November, and her name was next to Beyoncé’s, many had protested. But today, the Associated Press reports, the girl’s name appears on the Grammy website in the “Best Music Video” category, and her nomination is official.
The song is part of the soundtrack of the film The Lion King, The Lion King: The Gift, and has won several tiny prizes, of course together with the mother and the other co-writers. In 2019 the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award at the BET Soul Train Awards. This year, the Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration at the NAACP Image Awards, and the BET Her Award. Blue Ivy Carter has gone from appearances with Beyoncé on the red carpet, as in 2019 to the premiere of The Lion King’s remake, to today where the baby star becomes the absolute protagonist. And lend her voice, we will also hear her in the audiobook based on the children’s book Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry.
In short, if a good morning starts in the morning, Blue Ivy promises to do great things. All while continuing to attend second grade and study. And for sure, he’ll be watching the 63rd Grammy ceremony from home, which will be broadcast live from Los Angeles on January 31, 2021. Oh yes, because mom Beyoncé is the queen of the nominations this year. Nine for the visual album Black Is King.
