Not only does Blue Ivy Carter sing in her mom Beyoncé's new visual album film Black Is King, the 8-year-old also helped write one of the songs.

Now out on Disney+, Black Is King is based on the soundtrack album "The Lion King: The Gift" created by Beyoncé for the 2019 remake of the film, and is a "celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience."

In Blue's song "Brown Skin Girl," she's seated next to Beyoncé and dressed as a debutante, with a pearl necklace, tiara, and satin gloves. As the song comes to an end, Blue stands up and sings: "Brown skin girl, Your skin just like pearls, The best thing in the world, I never trade you for anybody else, singin'." (Full lyrics, here.)



The song—which also features Beyoncé, SAINt JHN, and Wizkid—won Blue her first BET Award back in June. "Brown Skin Girl" also picked up the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter's Award at the 2019 BET Soul Train Awards and Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration at the 2020 NAACP Image Awards.

During an appearance on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live, supermodel Naomi Campbell, who cameos in "Brown Skin Girl," praised Blue, calling her "a very, very lovely girl. She is really smart and mature, very intelligent. "

Campbell isn't the only one in awe of Blue's talents. Social media is also having a full on meltdown over her appearance in Black Is King, one Twitter user even calling her "the moment." Here's some of the best reactions to Blue in "Brown Skin Girl."
