Mathew Knowles Says Blue Ivy Carter Has ‘Already Proven’ That She Will Follow in Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Musical Footsteps
In a recent interview, the singer’s father and former manager opened up about the powerhouse couple’s tight-knit brood, revealing that even though the pair’s children are still young, they’re already showing signs of superstardom, just like their parents.
Knowles described the three kids’ personalities
Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s kids are celebrities in their own right and already have superstar qualities — all before the age of 10.
During a recent interview with Us Weekly, Beyoncé’s father opened up about his three grandchildren — Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir Carter — revealing that the children’s personalities greatly resemble that of their famous parents and other members of the superstar family.
“Blue Ivy is just so incredible and reminds me of Beyoncé so much,” Knowles told the outlet of the 8-year-old while promoting his COVID-19 PSA video. “Sir, he just wants his world to himself. [His twin sister], Rumi, reminds me of [my daughter] Solange [Knowles].”
The record executive went on to share that the couple’s eldest daughter has “already proven” that she’s a superstar in the making and has the same it factor Beyoncé and Solange had when they were young.
“I think we all see that in her,” Knowles said. “Just like I saw it in Solange and Beyoncé when they were growing up. They’re just about the passion because when we live in our passions, we don’t have to work a day in our lives…I just want them to find their passions and put in the work ethic and they’ll be successful.”
The children have already become pop culture icons
Over the years, Blue Ivy has shown flashes of having superstar potential in the music industry and has proved that she has what it takes to be as successful as her parents when it comes to making hit records.
First appearing in the song “Blue” from Beyoncé’s self-titled album, the eight-year-old has been featured on several of her parents’ songs, including the track “Boss” off of the couple’s joint album Everything Is Love as well as Jay-Z’s “Legacy and Blue’s Freestyle/We Family.”
In February 2020, Blue Ivy made history by winning her very first major award for her “Brown Skin Girl” collaboration with Beyoncé at the 51st NAACP Image Awards.
The song comes off of The Lion King: The Gift, Beyoncé’s album inspired by Disney’s live-action adaptation of The Lion King and currently has more than 44 million plays on Spotify, making this Blue Ivy’s most popular song to date.
Though the eight-year-old has proven that she has what it takes to be a megastar in the future, she’s not the only one of her siblings who’s shown superstar qualities.
In 2019, Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, revealed that all three of the children are stars in their own right and take after their famous parents in more ways than we think.
“The girl [Rumi] is really just going to rule the world, and the boy is kind of laid back and chills like the dad,” the House of Deréon designer told Us Weekly. [Blue] is the Queen B. The second Queen B.”
It sure sounds like Blue Ivy, Sir, and Rumi Carter have embraced the superstar genes their celebrity parents passed down and could become even more famous than they already are as time goes on. We’ll just have to wait and see what the future holds for these young megastars.
