Like mother, like daughter!

After a four-year absence since her last headlining show, Beyoncé returned to the stage on Saturday evening, when she performed an hour-long set at the new Atlantis The Royal Resort in Dubai.

At one point during the show, the “Crazy in Love” singer, 41, was joined by her 11-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter for a duet of their song “Brown Skin Girl,” which comes off of Beyoncé’s The Lion King companion album from 2019.

Dressed in a red, sparkling ensemble, Blue Ivy sang her portion of the Grammy Award-winning song, while her mom, wearing a yellow corseted dress that was topped with a feathered skirt and matching backpiece, sang her own parts.

At the end of the track, Variety reported that Blue Ivy hugged her mom and walked up the stage’s steps, where she then struck a pose and blew kisses to the crowd before her.

“Brown Skin Girl,” one of the tracks off of The Lion King: The Gift, got a standalone visual treatment on YouTube in August 2020.

The video had previously only been available to Disney+ subscribers as a part of Beyoncé’s most recent musical film, Black Is King, which dropped exclusively on the streaming service at the end of July of that year.

In the video, Beyoncé enlists various famous faces, including Naomi Campbell, Lupita Nyong’o and her former Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland — all of whom she name drops on the song — to sing the praises of black beauty, alongside her daughter, who sings on the opening and closing of the track.

The clip features Beyoncé and the rest of the video’s stars in a series of dazzling shots and outfits, with guest features on the song from Saint Jhn and Wizkid.

Blue Ivy received a writing credit for the track, which also scored not only her first official feature, but her first official entry onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
