Beyoncé’s Daughter, Blue Ivy, Is an Award-Winning Songwriter at Age 7!

Blue Ivy Carter gets it from her mama AND from her daddy!

On Sunday at the 2019 BET Soul Train Awards, the 7-year-old took home the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter's Award for co-writing “Brown Skin Girl” from “The Lion King: The Gift” album.

The young lady shared the honor with mom Beyoncé, dad JAY-Z, and others who penned the inspiring anthem, which celebrates dark- and brown-skinned women.

The track — which features vocals from Guyanese singer SAINt JHN and Nigerian artist Wizkid — marks the second time Bey and Blue have collaborated. Six years ago, the mother-daughter duo lent their vocals to "Blue" from 2013’s “Beyoncé.”

“Brown Skin Girl” was also nominated for Best Collaboration Performance, but lost to “No Guidance,” a Chris Brown song featuring Drake.

Sadly, the Carters did not attend the ceremony, held at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.

It’s Blue Ivy’s world… we’re just living in it!
