Beyonce and Jay-Z’s 7-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, just won a songwriting award
The superstar couple’s firstborn child scored the honour, together with her parents, at the BET Soul Train Awards.
What did you get up to when you were seven years old? Whatever it was, we’re guessing you didn’t win a songwriting award.
Well, Blue Ivy Carter did. The oldest child of Beyonce and Jay-Z recently picked up the accolade at the BET Soul Train Awards. She shared songwriting credit with her superstar parents and several other co-writers on Brown Skin Girl, a song from Beyonce’s The Lion King: The Gift album.
The song won the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award at the ceremony on Sunday evening (Nov 17). It also gave Blue Ivy her first Billboard hit when it debuted at No 76 in July; the album debuted at No 2.
Blue Ivy, whose name was trademarked by her parents in 2016, gives a vocal performance at the start and end of the song.
The famous family didn’t attend the show to pick up the awards, though.
Blue Ivy has had a prolific year – she starred in her mother’s Spirit music video and also appeared in Beyonce’s Netflix special, Homecoming, where she performed Lift Every Voice And Sing. The documentary earned six Emmy award nominations.
