Blue Ivy Carter, 11, Joins Mom Beyoncé Onstage for ‘Brown Skin Girl’ Performance in Dubai


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, 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.

Beyoncé’s weekend performance marked her first full concert since 2018, when she and husband JAY-Z appeared at the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 event.

Moving through a decade of iconic hits, the musician performed staples such as “Crazy in Love,” “Beautiful Liar” and “Naughty Girl,” as well as more recent tunes including “Freedom,” “Spirit” and “Be Alive.”

Dozens of famous faces attended Beyoncé’s concert comeback, including Kendall JennerNia Long and Rebel Wilson, plus Chlöe x Halle‘s Chlöe Bailey and Halle Bailey.


Many reality stars were also in attendance, such as The Bachelorette‘s Tayshia Adams, who attended with her mother, and Siesta Key‘s Juliette Porter, who was accompanied by boyfriend Clark Drum.

“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.
