JAY-Z’s Daughter Blue Ivy Joins Him Onstage to Accept Dr. Dre Global Impact Award at the Grammys 2023
JAY-Z Praises Blue Ivy’s Musical Talent and Her Own Grammy Achievements
At the Grammy Awards 2023, JAY-Z received the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award for his exceptional impact on the Music industry. During his acceptance speech, he brought his 12-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, onstage to celebrate with him and highlighted her own Grammy achievements.
“Thank you very much. I used to say it was a sippy cup for Blue, but Blue’s grown up now she doesn’t take sippy cups,” JAY-Z began his speech. “And she has her own Grammys.”
The proud father referenced Blue Ivy’s Grammy win for Best Music Video for her role in her mother Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl” video. While Beyoncé cheered JAY-Z on from the audience, their twins — Rumi and Sir, 6½ — were not seen at the awards show.
Blue Ivy’s Involvement in Her Parents’ Lives and Career
This is not the first time Blue Ivy has been publicly involved in her parent’s lives and career. She has joined her mother on stage during her Renaissance Tour. Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles, shared a rare glimpse into the singer’s home life on her birthday this year. In the throwback picture, the singer’s twins are toddlers, with Sir sitting on the far side of a bench as Rumi and big sister Blue helped Mom blow out her birthday candles.
JAY-Z, 54, released his first album, “Reasonable Doubt”, in 1996. Since then, he’s shared hits like “The Blueprint”, “American Gangster”, “4:44”, and his latest album “HOV DID” — and many more. He’s long been vocal about his wish to give back — not just through Music. The Dr. Dre Global Impact Award pays tribute to artists who have used their platform to give back, past just the musical medium.
JAY-Z’s Message to the Recording Academy and His Dedication to His Family
In his speech, JAY-Z addressed the Recording Academy, highlighting the need for fairness and recognition of artistic excellence. He also expressed his love and support for his family, emphasizing the importance of feeling loved and supported in pursuing one’s dreams.
“Feeling loved is the most important thing a child needs, you know?” JAY-Z said during a 2021 interview with The Sunday Times. “Not, ‘Here’s this business that I’m going to hand over to you, that I’m creating for you.’ What if my child doesn’t want to be in Music or sports?”
“I have no idea, right? But as long as your child feels supported, and feels loved, I think anything is possible.”
