Soul Train Awards

Jay-Z and Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter has won a songwriting award at the age of seven.

Blue Ivy bagged the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award at Sunday’s Soul Train Awards for co-writing her mother’s hit Brown skin girl, a song celebrating dark- and brown-skinned women.

Blue Ivy gives a vocal performance that opens and closes the song, which also features Wizkid and Saint Jhn.

The Carters were not at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas to accept the honour named after the legendary Motown songwriting duo Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson.

Blue Ivy shares the win with Beyonce, Jay-Z, St Jhn and several other co- writers.

This week could get even better for Blue Ivy.
