The Blue Ivy doesn’t fall far from the Jay-Z and Beyoncé tree.
The 7-year-old daughter of Grammy award winners Jay-Z and Beyoncé officially became an award-winning songwriter this past weekend…natch. Following in her parents’ footsteps, Blue Ivy was honored with the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award at this past Sunday’s Soul Train Awards for her co-writing contribution to her mom’s hit “Brown Skin Girl.”
The song celebrates women of color and features a vocal performance from Blue Ivy, Beyoncé, Wizkid and Saint Jhn. Blue also shares the win with her father and several other co-writers.
Unfortunately, the Carters were not in attendance at the award show to accept their honor (they were busy with Jay-Z’s Shawn Carter Foundation Gala Weekend). Still, we bet they’re more than happy to add Blue’s new award to their retinue of statuettes. After all, Beyoncé has 23 Grammys and Jay-Z has 22.
