- At an un-televised ceremony Friday, eight-year-old Blue Ivy Carter (opens in new tab) took home her first NAACP Image Award.
- Blue Ivy won for Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration for "Brown Skin Girl," her collaboration with her mom, Beyoncé (opens in new tab).
- Tina Knowles Lawson congratulated her granddaughter in a gushing Instagram post on Saturday.
Blue Ivy took home the award (opens in new tab) for Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration for her collaboration with her mom, Beyoncé (opens in new tab). The song, "Brown Skin Girl," which also features Wizkid and SAINT JHN, appears on The Lion King: The Gift album (opens in new tab). And just to be absolutely, 100 percent clear, Blue Ivy fully deserves (opens in new tab) to share in any and all accolades the song receives, since she not only sings on the song's chorus, but also shares writing credit on the track.
I reiterate: What have you been doing with your life?
Blue and Bey (opens in new tab) picked up the award Friday, during a non-televised ceremony, but Knowles family super matriarch, Tina Knowles Lawson (opens in new tab), made sure the world knew about her granddaughter's impressive accomplishment in a gushing Instagram post on Saturday.

“Congratulations BLUE IVY on your NAACP award last night for [singing] and writing on 'Brown Skin Girl' from the Album The Gift," she wrote, along with a photo of Blue from the "Spirit" music video. "The youngest artist to win a major award👏🏾👏🏾Grandma is soo proud of you❤️❤️❤️ 8 years old!!!!🙏🏾❤️ You are giving all the beautiful little brown girls a voice."
Clearly, Blue is carrying on her family's tradition of legendary talent—not that we ever doubted she would.
