Leave it up to Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s eldest daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, to make history as the youngest winner of a Video Music Award.

On Sunday night, Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl” took home the VMA for Best Cinematography. With Blue Ivy being credited on the song, she also received her own VMA for the feature, E! News reports. Blue Ivy appears on the song with her mom, Saint Jhn, and Wizkid.

Blue’s vocals are heard during the song’s opening and again at the end. The celebrity kid also appears in the music video alongside her famous mama. The song was featured in The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack, released in 2019.

The video debuted in Beyoncé’s 2020 Netflix film, Black Is King. It’s the third award for Blue Ivy after the song won a Grammy earlier this year for Best Music Video and a BET Award last year when Blue Ivy was just 8 years old, CNN reports.

Blue Ivy became the second-youngest Grammy winner when the video snagged an award earlier this year. She was one year older than singer Leah Peasall, who made history as the youngest winner when her group The Peasall Sisters took home the highest honor Album of the Year in 2001.

Blue and Beyoncé beat out a string of A-listers for the accolade. Other nominees included Lady Gaga’s “911,” Justin Bieber’s “Holy,” Foo Fighters’ “Shame Shame,” Lorde’s “Solar Power,” and Billie Eilish’s “Therefore I Am.”

Beyoncé skipped out on attending this year’s VMAs. But Pose choreographer Twiggy Pucci Garçon made sure to give Queen Bey and Blue their flowers on Twitter.

“Come on for Brown Skin Girl winning. And Bey makes sure to throw Blue Ivy in them credits bay.”

Blue Ivy is following in the footsteps of greatness, so, of course, she already has three awards before making it to middle school.
