    On Saturday night, Blue Ivy won her first award at the 51st NAACP Image Awards in the category of Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration for "Brown Skin Girl," her collaboration with Beyoncé, SAINt JHN and WizKiD off the 2019 Lion King soundtrack The Lion King: The Gift.

    Proud grandma Tina Knowles Lawson shared her excitement over her grandchild's award on Instagram.

    That's right – Blue Ivy is the youngest person to win a major award!

    For reference, she's two years younger than the youngest Oscar winner, who was Tatum O'Neal at 10 years old.

    It's absolutely wild that Blue Ivy's music career is just beginning and she's already won an award. But when your mom is Beyoncé, you already know you're destined for greatness.
