Blue Ivy's Feature on Beyoncé's New Album Has Us Ready For Her Music Career to Take Off
Blue Ivy is walking in her mama's footsteps!
On April 17, Beyoncé blessed us all with a new Netflix documentary about her historic Coachella performance as well as a new album. The 40-song LP compiles live recordings from her festival set, including some bonus tracks. And one of those tracks features 7-year-old Blue Ivy belting "Lift Every Voice and Sing" — one of the most revered songs during the civil rights movement that is also known as the Black National Anthem.
Blue Ivy adorably lends her vocals to the tune, and it's clear that she's a star in the making. Not only does she include the same runs as Beyoncé, but she seems to enjoy singing as much as her mom. "I wanna do that again," she says on the track. "It feels good!"
Blue Ivy is no stranger to the music scene, either. In 2012, she became the youngest person ever to appear on a Billboard chart when she was featured in JAY-Z's "Glory." She was also in Beyoncé's "Daddy Lessons" in 2016 as well as the "Mi Gente" remix the following year. The girl is racking up song credits before middle school. Can you believe?
My heart is still bursting with joy after hearing Blue's latest bop. And I'm not the only one who's excited about her feature and evident career in music. Ahead, listen to her verse before reading some of the best (and most relatable) reactions to her singing!
