Blue Ivy Carter may only be seven years old but she's already smashing it in the music world.

She's taking after her superstar mum Beyoncé and mega famous dad Jay-Z by winning her first award.

She was given the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter's prize at the 2019 Soul Train Awards on Sunday for her contribution to the tune Brown Skin Girl.

The song was released in July as part of The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack. Blue Ivy's vocals are also featured at the beginning and end of the track.

But she's not the first kid to take after their parents...
