Rumi Carter, Daughter Of Beyoncé And Jay-Z, Becomes The Youngest Artist To Enter The Billboard Top 100

At just six years old, Rumi Carter has achieved a milestone that sets her apart even in her superstar family: she has become the youngest female artist to enter the Billboard Hot 100.

A Musical Milestone in the Family

Following in the illustrious footsteps of her parents, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Rumi has landed at the impressive 42nd spot on the Billboard Hot 100 with her contribution to the song “Protector.” The track, featured on her mother’s latest album, “Cowboy Carter,” has not only captured the hearts of listeners but also marked a historic moment as outlined by Billboard magazine. At six years and nine months old, Rumi has broken the record previously held by her older sister, Blue Ivy.

In 2019, Blue Ivy was featured on “Brown Skin Girl” and entered the Hot 100 at the 76th position when she was just seven years old. Although Blue Ivy still holds a broader record for being the youngest artist to feature on a Billboard chart of any type, courtesy of her appearance in her father’s track “Glory” under the initials BIC just two days after her birth. This track, which includes the sounds of Blue Ivy’s first breaths, reached notable positions on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts.

The Legacy Continues But Still Behind Jordy

While Rumi’s achievement is indeed groundbreaking, she isn’t the youngest artist to ever feature on the Billboard Hot 100. That title is held by French singer Jordy, who was only four years old when his song “Dur dur d’être un bébé” (“It’s tough being a baby”) charted in 1992.

The Next Generation of Musical Talent

The children of Beyoncé and Jay-Z are not the only young talents in the spotlight. North West, the daughter of Kanye West, has also been making waves in the music scene. Recently, at ten years old, she announced the release of her first album, showcasing that musical prowess indeed runs in these celebrity families.

Rumi Carter’s early foray into the Billboard charts not only highlights her emerging talent but also continues the legacy of a family that has profoundly shaped the music industry. As she grows, the world eagerly watches to see if she will follow the path of her famous parents and sister or carve out her own unique musical identity.
