Blue Ivy Carter Just Won Her Second Major Award

Blue Ivy Carter’s list of accomplishments is more than impressive. She’s mastered the cat-eye, become an award-winning songwriter, landed a spot as one of the trendiest kids in Hollywood and she’s not even nine years old. Meanwhile, we were collecting American Girl Dolls and watching Mary Kate & Ashley movies at her age. Now, she’s adding another accolade to that list: a BET Award.

On Sunday, the oldest child of Beyoncé and Jay-Z won the BET Her Award (alongside Wizkid and SAINt JHN) for her part in Beyoncé's “Brown Skin Girl,” which the 8-year-old helped write alongside her mother and which landed on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. The award recognizes neo soul and traditional R&B artists.

Other nominees in the category included "Underdog" by Alicia Keys, "Melanin" by Ciara featuring Lupita Nyong'o, Ester Dean, City Girls and LaLa, "I Choose" by Layton Greene, "Tempo" by Lizzo featuring Missy Elliott and "Afeni" by Rapsody featuring PJ Morton.

“Brown Skin Girl” is from Beyoncé's compilation album The Lion King: The Gift that was released last July in conjunction with the Disney movie, in which Beyoncé voices the lioness Nala. In the catchy and empowering tune, Blue Ivy harmonizes with her mom and even drops a little solo at the close of the song, proving she definitely has her parents’ musical genes.

Congrats, Blue Ivy! We see quite the successful career ahead of you.
