Beyoncé, 37, released a 27-track album inspired by The Lion King on July 18. The collection is not the official movie soundtrack for the remake but is a “love letter to Africa,” according to the singer.
Blue Ivy shows off her skills in the song “Brown Skin Girl.” The 7-year-old is a feature on the track along with SAINt JHN and WizKid.
Although Beyoncé is the vocal lead on the song, her daughter has a solo. “Brown skin girl, your skin just like pearls / Best thing in the world / I’d never trade you for anybody else again,” Blue Ivy sings.
“NOW WHY BLUE IVY EAT BEYONCE UP ON ‘BROWN SKIN GIRL’?” one fan tweeted. Another fan said Blue “ended Beyoncé on ‘Brown Skin Girl.’”
The oldest child of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, 49, is also given writing credit for the song. “MY BABY BLUE IVY GOT A WRITING CREDIT ON ‘BROWN SKIN GIRL’!!!!! ONLY SEVEN YEARS OLD & ALREADY GOT A DISCOGRAPHY!!! CATCH UP,” one fan praised on Twitter.
The Lemonade singer has been spotlighting her daughter’s talents a lot lately. Blue Ivy made a cameo in the music video for “Spirit” from the official soundtrack from The Lion King. The young star also showed off her singing and dancing skills in the Netflix documentary Homecoming.
“Brown Skin Girl” is not the 7-year-old’s first feature. Blue Ivy is also listed as a feature on her mom’s 2013 song “Blue.”
