Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of billionaire music couple Jay Z and Beyoncé, is now a Grammy-nominated artist.

The 8-year-old is listed as a writer on Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl,” which debuted on the album “The Lion King: The Gift.”

The song, which praises Black women, including named celebrities like actress Lupita Nyong’o, model Naomi Campbell and Beyoncé’s former Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland, features an intro and outro sung by Blue Ivy.

She also appears in the music video, which garnered the nomination and debuted this summer when Beyoncé released “Black Is King,” the visual accompaniment of “The Gift.”

“I love everything about you, from your nappy curls to every single curve,” the 8-year-old says on the track.

While the Grammys officially announced nominees last month, Blue Ivy’s name did not initially appear on the nominees list. Nigerian singer Wizkid, who is listed as a co-writer, appeared in the music video and whose vocals are featured in the song, was excluded from list as well. The Recording Academy recently updated its website to include the two, The Associated Press reported.

According to the AP, the best music video Grammy is awarded to the main and featured artists on the track, as well as the video’s director and producer.

SAINt JHN, who is also featured on the track but did not appear in the music video, was still not listed as a nominee on the Grammys’s site.

The Grammys are scheduled for Jan. 31.
