The Carter Legacy: Blue Ivy Gets First Grammy Nod
First a BET Award, now Blue Ivy Carter is up for a Grammy for her contribution to her iconic mother’s “Brown Skin Girl” video.
The 8-year-old daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, is a nominee alongside her mother for Best Music Video. She’s a year older than the youngest-ever Grammy winner, Leah Peasall, according to Rolling Out.
They’re up against Drake’s “Life is Good,” Anderson .Paak’s “Lockdown,” Harry Styles’ “Adore You” and Woodkid’s “Goliath” for Best Music Video.
Mom and daughter won the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s BET Award in 2019 for the song, which appears on Beyoncé’s “Lion King: The Gift” album. The song inspired a national social media movement — #BrownSkinGirlChallenge.
The Grammy Awards airs Jan. 31, 2021 on CBS.
