Blue Ivy Scores Her First BET Awards Nomination at Age 8

Blue Ivy Just Casually Became the Youngest BET Award Winner in History

during the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards at Madison Square Garden on January 28, 2018 in New York City.

At just eight years old, Blue Ivy Carter has a more impressive résumé than me, and I'm not even mad about it. The young star just nabbed her first-ever BET Award — and became the youngest to win in the award show's history — for being featured on her mum Beyoncé's song "Brown Skin Girl" from The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack album. The uplifting anthem, which also features Saint Jhn and Wizkid, was nominated for the 2020 BET Her Award, which honours neo-soul and traditional R&B artists. The song is up against Alicia Keys's "Underdog," Ciara's "Melanin," Lizzo's "Tempo," Layton Greene's "I Choose," and Rapsody's "Afeni."

Of course, this isn't the first time Blue's been recognised for her contributions to "Brown Skin Girl." Last Summer, the popular tune entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and just a few months later, Blue earned a songwriting award at the 2019 BET Soul Train Awards for helping her mum pen the song's empowering lyrics about the beauty of Black women. And just this past February, Blue, Bey, Wizkid, and Saint Jhn won an NAACP Image Award for the track. See — I told you her résumé's stacked.
