Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of Beyonce and Jay-Z, just picked up a BET Award and is the youngest ever to win one.

The 20th annual BET Awards was held virtually on Sunday night. The award was for the track "Brown Skin Girl," and it appears on the The Gift, an album that was inspired by the 2019 remake of the Disney movie The Lion King. Wizkid, SAINT JHN and Blue Ivy's parents were also recipients of the award.

Blue Ivy has now succeeded Willow Smith as the youngest-ever BET winner. Smith, the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, won a YoungStars award when she was 10.

In other news at the BETs, Lizzo beat out Beyonce in the best female R&B category for pop artist, and DaBaby won over Drake to receive his first award for best male hip-hop artist.

Beyonce made a plea for black people to vote in the presidential election "like your life depends on it."

Beyonce continues to make headlines, as over the weekend she announced a new film project, Black Is King for Disney Plus.

A press release from Disney and Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment about the visual album calls it "a reunion of cultures."

Black Is King is a celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience. The film is a story for the ages that informs and rebuilds the present. A reunion of cultures and shared generational beliefs. A story of how the people left most broken have an extraordinary gift and a purposeful future.”

According to Us Magazine, the visual album will also have contributors from The Lion King: The Gift, such as Kendrick Lamar, 070 Shake, Childish Gambino, Pharrell, Tierra Whack, and Jessie Reyez.

Us Magazine writes that Black Is King will tell the story of black families " through time told through the tale of a young king’s journey to reclaim his home and throne with help and guidance from his father and ancestors."

It's not even Blue Ivy's first award for the song. She also won at the 2019 BET Soul Train Awards, picking up the Ashford & Simpson Songwriters’ Award, and was the winner in the Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration category during the 2020 NAACP Image Awards.

Blue Ivy beat out nominees like Alicia Keys, Lupita N'Yong'o, Lizzo, Missy Elliott and others.

Blue Ivy, well on her way to a music career, can also be heard giving a freestyle performance on her dad Jay-Z's 4:44 from 2017.
