Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter Blue Ivy has just won her first-ever Grammy award at the tender age of nine. Blue Ivy is one of the Best Music Video prize recipients for her starring role in her mum Beyonce's Brown Skin Girl music video, a song she made with SAINt JHN and WizKid.

The winner was announced ahead of the ceremony. Sharing the news on Twitter, the Recording Academy's official account wrote: "Congrats Best Music Video winner - 'BROWN SKIN GIRL' @Beyonce #BlueIvy @wizkidayo Sparkles #GRAMMYs."

The Brown skin girls track was part of Beyonce's Lion King album, The Gift, and even includes a verse by Blue, who appears in the video alongside her famous mum.

Blue Ivy being listed as a featured artist on the track means she's become one of the youngest people ever to win a Grammy. The young lad is beaten only by The Peasall Sisters member Leah, seven when she recorded their soundtrack for O Brother, Where Art Thou? she was eight when she won a Best Album Grammy alongside her siblings.

Beyonce, who also shares twins Rumi and Sir, three, with her rapper husband, supports her fellow women. The musician recently praised Meghan Markle for her bravery to speak out in her interview with Oprah Winfrey. Beyonce shared a photo of herself and the Duchess of Sussex hugging at the Lion King premiere in London.

Taking to social media, She wrote,

"Thank you, Meghan, for your courage and leadership. We are all strengthened and inspired by you."
