At just 7, Beyonce and Jay Z’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter is an award-winning songwriter.
She won the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award at Sunday’s Soul Train Awards for co-writing her mom’s hit “Brown Skin Girl,” a song celebrating dark- and brown-skinned women.
Ivy Carter gives a vocal performance that opens and closes the song, which also features Wizkid and Saint Jhn.
The song was released in July as part of “The Lion King: The Gift” soundtrack. Beyoncé, Jay-Z, St. Jhn and other co-writers shared the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award win with the young girl.
From all of us here at Naijazzy, we say a big congratulations to the little star girl.
