Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Daughter Blue Ivy Carter, Now An Award Winning Songwriter
To make things even more impressive, this win is a family affair, as Queen Bey and Jay-Z are also credited as songwriters on the single.
She accepted the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award at the Soul Train Awards on Sunday and we all feel like proud parents.
Blue opens and closes the song – which also features Wizkid and Saint Jhn – with the lyrics: ‘Brown skin girl/ Your skin just like pearls/ The best thing in the world/ Never trade you for anybody else.’
Blue shares her incredible win with mum Beyoncé and dad Jay-Z. Talk about an Ivy League (sorry).
Grammy nominations will also be revealed on Wednesday and maybe the song could earn the youngster her first Grammy nomination.
She can put her award next to Beyoncé’s 23 trophies and Jay-Z’s 22. Fans were just as excited to hear about Blue winning her first-ever award.
In the documentary (which broke down the behind-the-scenes process of Beyoncé’s 2018 Coachella set), Blue showcased her performance skills while singing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” during rehearsals.
The song was then included on Beyoncé’s surprise Homecoming album, and the documentary ended up earning six Emmy award nominations.
