Blue Ivy Carter Becomes Youngest Grammy Awards Nominee In History
At just 8 years old, Blue Ivy Carter has made history becoming the youngest nominee of the prestigious Grammy Awards for her contribution to “Brown Skin Girl.”
This is coming after she made history at the BET Award earlier this year and became the youngest to win in the award show’s history — for being featured on her mom Beyoncé’s song “Brown Skin Girl” from The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack album.
Earlier today, the list of nominees for the 2021 Grammy Awards was released, and it saw Beyonce get the most features.
Her hit, Brown Skin Girl, was nominated in the ‘Best Music Video’ category, and Blue Ivy has made history as a result.
Despite being just a child, Blue Ivy has already established quite the recording career. She’s 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.
Blue Ivy also featured in the video for “Spirit,” another Beyoncé track from the Lion King. Beyoncé both appeared in the movie as Nala and also curated a soundtrack album called The Lion King: The Gift, which featured Jay-Z, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, and Tierra Whack.
The 8-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.”
