At just eight years old, Blue Ivy Carter is already on track to follow in her famous parents' footsteps. Most recently, the mini star has added voiceovers to her list of accomplishments, lending her talents to Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry.

The audio version of Cherry's children's book/short film is an ode to self-love, freedom of expression and Black girl magic, as a father attempts to do his daughter's gorgeous, natural hair for the first time.

Cherry revealed Beyoncé and Jay-Z's daughter narrated the book on Monday (Nov. 9), when he tweeted out a link as well as a seven-second clip in which you hear Blue Ivy introduce the story.

The Hair Love short film took home the Oscar in 2020 for best animated short film. Watch it below.
