CelebnMusic247.com reports Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy is the second youngest to ever walk away with the prize.
At age 9, Blue becomes one of the youngest artists to have the honor bestowed on her.
Beyonce and Blue just won for Best Music Video, an award that was given out before the broadcast on Sunday night.
The Recording Academy gave props to the team, tagging Beyonce and hashtagging BI (since she doesn’t have Twitter yet), plus Wizkid.
The Academy wrote:
Congrats Best Music Video winner – ‘BROWN SKIN GIRL’ @Beyonce #BlueIvy @wizkidayo Sparkles #GRAMMYs.
The video that is mainly sung by Beyonce has Blue throughout the video, but its the end of the video where Blue the outro, nearly identical to the intro and chorus to earn her a Grammy.
Brown skin girl // Your skin just like pearls // The best thing in the world // I’d never trade you for anybody else, singin’.
Um, yeah. Ok, Blue Ivy can thank her parents for this award.
It’s a small contribution, but it counts … and Blue’s even a featured name on the song. So, yes … she also gets credit, and just as important, she also gets a statuette — joining her folks, who’ve got dozens of Grammys among themselves.
In 2002, the music group The Peasall Sisters won a Grammy for Best Album for the soundtrack to “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” to which they contributed on “In the Highways.”
The youngest of those three sisters, Leah, was 7 when she recorded it and 8 when she and her other two siblings won.
Nepotism is awesome.
