What's more, it made Blue the youngest ever winner at the awards, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year.

Blue Ivy's proud grandmother Tina Knowles reacted to her BET Award news

"Now we have one more thing we need to do to walk in our true power and that is to vote. I'm encouraging you to continue to take action. Continue to change and dismantle a racist and unequal system. We have to vote like our life depends on it, because it does."

Blue is following in Beyoncé and Jay-Z's footsteps

This isn't the first time that Blue has been recognised for Brown Skin Girl. In 2019, the little girl scored her very first hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. The single was placed at 77 on the Hot 100, with Blue being credited as one of the track's songwriters. She also appears at the beginning and end of the song, and in the music video. In the hit, Blue opens and closes the track singing "Brown skin girl/Your skin just like pearls/The best thing in the world/I'll never trade you for anybody else."

Blue even became the youngest person to appear on a Billboard chart after featuring in the rapper's single Glory, just two days after she was born.
