Blue Ivy Wins a Grammy

The first-born daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Blue Ivy Carter has taken home her first Grammy award.

One of the Youngest Winners

At the 63rd GRAMMY Awards, the nine-year-old received the Best Music Video award for her role in the song “Brown Skin Girl”, alongside her mother and WizKid. The Best Music Video award is given to the artist, video director, and video producer. The fellow nominees in that category were Future with Drake, Anderson .Paak, Harry Styles, and Woodkid.

Blue Ivy is among the youngest artists to win a GRAMMY. She is the second after The Peasall Sisters’ Leah Peasall who won at age 8 for her credit on the “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” soundtrack.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé became the most-awarded female artist ever in Grammy history with amazing 28 total wins.

During her acceptance speech for “Black Parade,” which earned her the award for Best R&B Performance, Beyoncé shouted out her daughter and her other two children, twins Rumi and Sir, for inspiring her.

“This is so overwhelming,” Beyoncé said. “I’ve been working my whole life, since nine years old. I can’t believe this happened. This is such a magical night. Thank you so much. I know my daughter is watching, two daughters and my son, y’all all are watching. Blue, congratulations, you won a Grammy tonight. I’m so proud of you, and I’m so honored to be your mommy, all of your mommies. Y’all are my babies and I’m so proud of y’all.”

After the ceremony, she took to her personal website to share a few behind-the-scenes images of her and Blue.

No Stranger to Awards

This isn’t Blue Ivy’s first award. She became the youngest winner of a BET Award at the age of eight when she won the BET Her Award in 2020 also for “Brown Skin Girl”.

She also narrated the audio version of the children’s book “Hair Love,” an animated short about a Black father learning to style his daughter’s hair. The short won an Academy Award earlier this year.
