Blue Ivy Carter, 9, wins her first Grammy
Blue Ivy Carter (L) and Beyonce Knowles-Carter attend the World Premiere of Disney THE LION KING at the Dolby Theatre on July 09, 2019 in Hollywood, California.
Blue Ivy Carter has become the second-youngest person ever to win a Grammy.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s nine-year-old daughter won the best music video trophy for her mother’s hit “Brown Skin Girl” (featuring Wizkid and Saint Jhn) on Sunday (14 March) during the Grammy Premiere Ceremony. She shares the award with her mother.
The video, in which Blue Ivy stars and sings, was up against Harry Styles’ “Adore You”, Anderson .Paak‘s “Lockdown”, Woodkid’s “Goliath,” and Future‘s “Life Is Good” featuring Drake.
Leah Peasall of The Peasall Sisters is the youngest Grammy nominee, and winner, in history. She was one of the credited artists on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, which won album of the year in 2001 when she was eight years old.
Blue Ivy Carter, 9, is the second youngest artist to win a Grammy Award.
The daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z won her first Grammy on Sunday for Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl.” Blue Ivy received a writing credit for the song.
Blue Ivy would have been the youngest to win a Grammy, but that record is held by Leah Peasall, who won in 2001 at the age of 8.
“Brown Skin Girl” is featured on Beyoncé’s “Lion King: The Gift” album. The video, which premiered last summer, stars Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Rowland and other famous faces as they sing about Black female empowerment. The single also features Saint Jhn and Wizkid.
The Grammy Awards are a big night for Blue Ivy’s mom, Queen Bey, who is nominated for 9 awards, leading the way with the most nominations of the evening. She could make Grammy history as the most awarded recipient ever.
