Blue Ivy Carter has officially surpassed 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify, despite never having released music as a solo artist.
The 8-year-old was recently featured on “Brown Skin Girl” from “The Lion King: The Gift,” which was curated and executive produced by her mother, Beyoncé.
Carter had been featured on her parents’ songs before, like Beyoncé’s 2014 song “Blue” and a rendition of “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” on her 2019 live album “Homecoming.”
Carter is also credited with providing “additional vocals” on some of her father’s songs, including “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family” and “Legacy.” Just two days after her birth, she was featured on Jay-Z’s “Glory” and became the youngest person ever to appear on a Billboard chart.
However, “Brown Skin Girl” appears to be the only song listed on Carter’s Spotify page – possibly because it’s the only song on which she’s credited as a lyricist.
Fans are celebrating Carter’s achievement on social media and joking that she was “outperforming the other girls in the womb.”
