She may be known as the eldest daughter of two of the world's most famous artists but Blue Ivy Carter is well on her way to being a superstar in her own right if her latest accomplishment is anything to go by.

The talented youngster, who recently won a BET award with mom Beyoncé Knowles-Carter for Brown Skin Girl, has lent her voice to the audio book version of Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry.

The book is about a father learning to style his child's hair.

Hair Love was released as a short film in 2019, going on to win an Oscar at the 2020 Academy Awards.

Cherry shared a series of posts on the book on Instagram on Monday, including a snippet of Carter reading the book.

He also revealed that the book, a New York Times best-seller, would be translated into French and Portuguese.

Joining in on the excitement was none other than the eight-year-old's grandmother, Tina Lawson, who not only gushed over the youngster's latest gig but also heaped praises on the book for teaching “young black girls to love their hair”.

“Wow! I heard My granddaughter’s narration! She killed it! I cannot wait to download her voice reading it!

“This book was so great for our young black girls to love their hair!" the proud grandmother said in an Instagram post.
