Who runs the world? Blue Ivy.
Sunday, March 14 marked a very special day for Beyoncé and Jay-Z's oldest child. We're, of course, talking about the 2021 Grammys, where the 9-year-old won her first Grammy award. (Yes, that makes her one of the youngest winners in history!)
Specifically, the young miss Carter took home the trophy for Best Music Video for "Brown Skin Girl," alongside Beyoncé and WizKid. While the musical protégé wasn't first named when the nominations dropped on November 24, the Recording Academy included her as a contender when they updated the list of nominated artists in December.
The up-and-comer is no stranger to award shows as "Brown Skin Girl," which is featured on The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack album, won the BET Her Award at the 2020 BET Awards, the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter's Award at the 2019 BET Soul Train Awards and Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration at the 2020 NAACP Image Awards.
With parents like Beyoncé and Jay-Z, it isn't shocking to see that Blue Ivy is already becoming a household name. Whether she's stealing the spotlight from her famous parents at industry events or giving informative PSAs, the 9-year-old is certainly living her life to the fullest.
