Y'all, Blue Ivy Carter is definitely following in her mother's footsteps, and we are so ready for it.

The Grammy winner’s album, which she executive-produced, is a companion LP to the Lion King movie soundtrack. The 27-track album features a variety of collabs with artists including Childish Gambino, Pharrell Williams and Major Lazer — but Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter appears on “Brown Skin Girl.”

“Brown skin girl,” the little one sings along with SAINt JHN. “Your skin just like pearls. The best thing in the world. Never trade for anybody else.”

It’s been a big month for Blue, who had a cameo in her mom’s Tuesday, July 16, “Spirit” music video. Beyoncé, who voices Nala in the remake, matched her daughter in a flowing pink and red gown in the video. The 7-year-old first appeared behind the actress and reached out for her hand, then sat beside Beyoncé and stared straight into the camera.

This isn't the first time we've seen Blue Ivy featured on one of her famous parents' albums. She's also been on Jay-Z's "Glory" from 2012 and Bey's "Blue" from 2014.

When The Lion King premiered in Hollywood on July 9, the mother-daughter pair rocked the red carpet in similar Alexander McQueen tuxedo dresses. This came one month after they wore twinning Lion King-inspired outfits to the Wearable Art Gala in Santa Monica. The “Single Ladies” singer posted an Instagram video at the time of Blue singing to “Circle of Life.”


"The album The Lion King: The Gift was executive produced by @Beyoncé. 'This is sonic cinema,' said Beyoncé. 'This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.'”

We are not prepared for this greatness.
