Tina Knowles-Lawson was too excited to celebrate Blue Ivy's Grammys win

Blue is credited as a featured artist on the track, sings on it, and is prominent in the video for the song, which was released last August as a part of the soundtrack for the 2019 film The Lion King: The Gift. It was later adapted into a stunning visual clip for Bey’s 2020 visual album Black Is King

Although Blue’s name didn’t originally appear on the Grammy nomination when it was first revealed, it was recently added to it on the Record Academy’s Grammy website.

The budding starlet shared the win with her superstar mother, as well as singer Wizkid, rapper Saint Jhn, and the video’s creators.

Blue Ivy is now the second-youngest person to ever win a Grammy

The song - and Blue/Beyoncé’s win has a particularly special meaning because Brown Skin Girl is a love letter to black girls and black women, with an empowering message to love and embrace the skin that we’re in. 

“When I see fathers singing ‘Brown Skin Girl’ to their daughters, to know that my daughter can have the same opportunities and feel confident and feel like she doesn’t have to take her braids down, she can comb her Afro out, she can glisten in her brown skin,” Bey said in the ABC special of Beyoncé Presents: Making the Gift in September 2019, according to Teen Vogue. "That’s why I make music.”

Blue sings the words “brown skin girl, your skin just like pearls, the best thing in the world, I’ll never trade you for anybody else.”

We can’t wait to see what’s in store for this superstar in the making.
