JAY-Z and Beyoncé's 8-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter can add children's book narrator to her already-impressive entertainment résumé that includes winning a BET Her Award and an NAACP Image Award for her song "Brown Skin Girl" featuring her mom, SAINt JHN and WizKid.
Blue Ivy has lent her voice to the audiobook reading of 'Hair Love' based on Matthew A. Cherry's Oscar-winning short film. Cherry announced the release of the audiobook along with a brief preview on Monday, tallying nearly 2 million views on Twitter in the process.
'Hair Love' is a heartwarming story that captures a Black father's domestic conquest in trying to style his daughter Zuri's hair for the first time. Here's a longer synopsis via Audible: "Zuri’s hair has a mind of its own. It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. Zuri knows it’s beautiful. When Daddy steps in to style it for an extra special occasion, he has a lot to learn.
"But he LOVES his Zuri, and he’ll do anything to make her - and her hair - happy. Tender and empowering, 'Hair Love' is an ode to loving your natural hair - and a celebration of daddies and daughters everywhere."
Cherry wrote, directed and co-produced the animated short with Karen Rupert Toliver. Dreamscape Media produced the audio-adapted version available to play across audiobook platforms.
Before hopping in the booth, Blue Ivy was recently seen busting in on Beyoncé taking a bath while wearing sneakers from her new Ivy Park x Adidas collection.
