According to reports, the Recording Academy updated the Best Music Video nomination for “Brown Skin Girl” to include Blue Ivy and WizKid, who is also credited as a featured artist on the track. Both the Nigerian artist and the eldest child of Beyoncé and JAY-Z were originally not included in the November 2020 nominees announcement.
“Brown Skin Girl” has given Blue Ivy an NAACP Image Award, BET Award (the youngest person to ever receive one) and a Soul Train Award. The track is a cut from Beyoncé’s 2019 soundtrack album The Lion King: The Gift, which accompanied the photorealistic animated remake of The Lion King.
Elsewhere in music, James Blake shared a new EP of covers of Billie Eilish, Frank Ocean and more.
