Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s eldest child, recently received her first two gold plaques from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Blue Ivy is a 10-year-old with an increasing amount of awards and accomplishments attached to her name.
The child’s feature on Beyoncé’s song “Blue” from the entertainer’s 2013 self-titled album earned Blue Ivy one of the certifications.
The other plaque was secured through the success of the song “Brown Skin Girl” off Beyoncé’s 2019 project, The Lion King: The Gift. Those who’ve heard the empowering anthem know Blue Ivy’s vocals sing the track’s chorus during the beginning and end of the song.
“Both [“Blue” and “Brown Skin Girl”] crossed the 500,000 units mark, putting them in position for gold certifications,” Hip Hop DX reports.
The certifications make Blue Ivy the third Carter in Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s household to receive their props from the RIAA.
Thanks to the Renaissance’s success in the past few weeks, Beyoncé’s seventh solo studio album earned the talent a shocking 70 RIAA certifications in one day, according to VIBE.
