Blue Ivy Carter is the daughter of power couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
The 11-year-old is already among the world’s wealthiest kids, with a jaw-dropping net worth of $500 million (more than most high-profile musicians).
So, how did such a young kid become one of the world’s wealthiest under 20?
How Does Blue Ivy Carter Make Money?
The phrase “born with a silver spoon” might be cliché, but it’s factual in this case.
Blue Ivy Carter is the daughter of music royalty, so shortly after she was born, Time Magazine declared her the world’s most famous baby.
Instead of resting on their laurels, The Carters went to work building their daughter’s wealth.
Two days after she was born, Jay-Z used her vocals in his song “Glory.”
He officially credited Blue Ivy, making her the youngest person to have a song on any Billboard chart in history.
In 2019, she sang “Brown Skin Girl” with Beyoncé, Wizkid, and Saint Jhn.
The song was a megahit and won her several awards, including:
- Grammy Award for Best Music Video
- BET HER Award
- Soul Train Award for Video of the Year
- Guinness World Record for youngest individually credited Grammy Award Winner
In 2020, Blue Ivy narrated the stellar book, “Hair Love,” about a Black dad doing his daughter’s hair.
Blue Ivy Carter will earn royalties from that work alone for as long as she lives.
Considering she’s not even 15 yet, the singer doesn’t have to work a day of her life; she doesn’t even need her parents’ inheritance.
A clear example is a recent Wearable Art Gala auction, where Blue Ivy won a bidding war worth over $80,000.
Building Wealth Is Blue Ivy Carter’s Game
Beyoncé and Jay-Z are positioning their daughter to make income-generating opportunities.
Thanks to their input, Blue Ivy is creating her legacy and making the Carter family a truly wealthy one.
