Blue Ivy is now the second youngest person to ever win the prestigious award. "Brown Skin Girl" was originally released on the 2019 soundtrack album "The Lion King: The Gift." 

Beyoncé now has 25 Grammys to her name. She is also the leading nominee with nine nominations, but according to the Recording Academy's interim chief executive, she will not be performing at the ceremony.

Chief Harvey Mason Jr. expressed how Beyoncé's decision to not perform was unfortunate because she is a huge part of the Recording Academy. He said everyone would have loved to see her.

The music video was co-directed by Nigerian-British filmmaker, Jenn Nkiru, who accepted the award on behalf of the creative team. She has collaborated with Beyoncé in the past. 

The star-studded video features supermodel Naomi Campbell, "Black Panther" star Lupita Nyong'o, and Beyoncé's former "Destiny's Child" bandmate, Kelly Rowland.

This is not the first award Blue Ivy has won for "Brown Skin Girl." In 2020, she nabbed her first BET Award during a virtual ceremony and became the youngest winner in the award show's two-decade history. 

Being the daughter of music royalties, Blue Ivy was assigned a star at birth, but it looks like she will be marching to the beat of her own drum and make a name for herself. 

Blue Ivy also won the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter's Award at the 2019 BET Soul Train Awards, which she shared with Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and SAINt JHN, among others. 

Blue Ivy and Beyoncé first collaborated on "Blue," a track released on the singer's eponymous fifth solo album in 2013. The little one was also featured on "Glory," a 2012 track written by her father.
