    One Blue Ivy Carter, daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, is already a BET and NAACP award-winner at the age of 8, thanks to her collaboration with her mom, Saint Jhn, and Wizkid on "Brown Skin Girl" from the Lion King: The Gift album. And now, she's got a shot at a spoken word Grammy: Blue Ivy has narrated the audiobook for Hair Love, based on the short film by Matthew A. Cherry that won the Oscar for best animated short earlier this year. The film documents a Black father learning to do his daughter's hair; last year, it was made into a children's book, illustrated by Vashti Harrison, while it will soon become an animated series at HBO Max, Variety reports.

    Cherry shared an introductory clip of the audiobook on Twitter Monday, debuting Blue Ivy's expert (and extremely cute) narration. "Dreamscape presents Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry, narrated by Blue Ivy Carter," she says in the clip.
