Beyoncé’s daughters are making waves in the music world, with Rumi Carter recently achieving a remarkable milestone, surpassing her older sister Blue Ivy in chart success. At just 6 years old, Rumi made history as the youngest female artist to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, thanks to her feature on Beyoncé’s “Cowboy Carter” album.

The track “Protector,” where Rumi asks her mother for a lullaby, currently sits at number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This achievement surpasses Blue Ivy’s feature on Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl” in 2019, which peaked at number 76 when Blue was 7 years old.

Notably, Blue Ivy is still making history as she still holds the title as the youngest person overall to claim a spot on any Billboard chart, credited as “B.I.C.” on Jay-Z’s “Glory” in 2012 shortly after her birth.

While Rumi’s feat marks a significant milestone, Blue Ivy continues to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Although she does not feature on Beyoncé’s latest album, Blue has been actively involved in music and performance.

She gained early experience on stage during Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” tour, impressing audiences with her dancing skills despite initial hesitations from her parents.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have expressed pride in Blue Ivy’s development and talents, reflecting on her growth from a young backup dancer to a budding artist.

While Rumi’s achievement sets a new record within the family, both sisters exemplify a remarkable musical legacy shaped by their iconic parents.
