Blue Ivy Carter won her first BET Award on Sunday, and she's only 8 years old.

The young singer-songwriter received the BET Her award at Sunday night's ceremony, and shared the honor with her famous mother Beyoncé, as well as Wizkid and SAINt JHN, all of whom collaborated on the track "Brown Skin Girl."

Blue Ivy and her collaborators beat out other nominees like Lizzo, Missy Elliott, Alicia Keys, Ciara, and City Girls for the award, which celebrates "inspiring" and "empowering" songs by women that "speak to the BET Her audience."Advertisement

"Brown Skin Girl" originally appeared on "The Lion King: The Gift" soundtrack in 2019. Beyoncé notably voiced the character of Nala and wrote several songs for the Disney film.

This isn't the first time the 8-year-old has achieved an honor normally reserved for much older artists. In February, Blue Ivy officially surpassed 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify, despite never having released music as a solo artist.

And Blue has also received numerous other awards in her short career, including the Ashford & Simpson songwriters' award at the 2019 BET Soul Train awards.
