Beyoncé's mother Tina Knowles has shared the sweetest video of her eldest granddaughter Blue Ivy Carter dancing, and it's certainly the mood booster we're in need of this week.

In the short clip, shared on Instagram on Sunday January 11, the nine-year-old daughter of Queen Bey and musician Jay-Z shows she's inherited the performance gene from her megastar parents and isn't afraid of showing off her moves.

The matriarch of the talented family, Knowles, revealed in the accompanying caption to the clip that Blue's dancing was reminiscent of singer (and the child's auntie) Solange Knowles.

'This is Blue but I swear it looks like Solange dancing at this age,' she noted.



The video shows the young Carter, who already as BET Award to her name for her work on her mother's 2020 'Brown Skin Girl' track, busting an energetic move to Ciara's 2010 single 'Gimmie Dat'.

In the clip, she wears an adorable white and rainbow-embossed dress and dances alongside her friends during what appears to be a ballet lesson.

Fans of both Beyoncé and Solange were quick to praise the youngster's dancing in the video's comment section.

One fan wrote 'Omg, she is getting it in. I'm not surprised she can dance. I mean, look who her mother is. Go Blue [sic]' while another joked, 'Beyonce blue coming for ur crown boo [sic]'.

This isn't the first time Blue has been praised for her performances. As recently as November 23, Blue became the youngest person to be nominated for a Grammy Award for her über sweet addition to'Brown Skin Girl.'


In recent years, the oldest of Beyoncé's brood has been awarded the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) for an outstanding duo/group gong for singing on the aforementioned track, which features on the 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift.

Blue is named as one of the singers and co-writers on the song, and shared her win with her mother, rapper Saint Jhn and artist Wizkid. She also won a song-writing award at the BET Soul Train Awards in 2019 for the hit.
