CLEARLY IN HER GENES

Blue showcased her vocal skills in the song, “Brown Skin Girl.” The track which is a collaboration between the seven-year-old, her mother, WizKid, and SAINt JHN opens with Blue’s voice harmonizing with SAINt JHN’s as they sing the lyrics, “Brown skin girls, skin just like pearls, best thing in the world, never change it for anybody else.”

Blue’s participation is a testament to the strength of her parents’ genes flowing in her blood. She even earned herself a solo towards the end of the song when she recites the chorus.
