Kids take after their parents more often than not, and Mathew Knowles, a record executive and father of pop singers Beyoncé and Solange, has the proof.
In a recent interview with US Weekly he did while promoting his COVID-19 PSA, Mathew Knowles spoke about his grandchildren’s distinct personalities. Beyoncé shares three children with rapper Jay-Z: 8-year-old Blue Ivy and 2-year-old twins Sir and Rumi Carter. Out of those three children, Knowles revealed that Blue Ivy is the one who takes after her mother the most.
“Blue Ivy is just so incredible and reminds me of Beyoncé so much,” said Knowles. “And then Sir, he just wants his world to himself and Rumi, she reminds me of Solange.”
Mathew Knowles also spoke about how Blue Ivy has “already proven” that she will be a famous musician one day, just like her parents. Blue Ivy is certainly off to a good start, since she has already worked with her famous mother on her soundtrack album “The Lion King: The Gift,” which Beyoncé made for the 2019 remake of Disney film The Lion King. Blue Ivy appeared in the music video for the album’s hit single “SPIRIT” and even won a songwriters award at the age of 7 for her work on Beyoncé’s hit song “Brown Skin Girl.” Blue Ivy also made a recent COVID-19 PSA, just like her grandfather.
“I think we all see that in her,” said Knowles. “Just like I saw it in Solange and Beyoncé when they were growing up. They’re just about the passion because when we live our passion, we don’t have to work a day in our lives. And whatever her passion is, or any of the kids’ passion, I support. I just want them to find their passion and put in the work ethics and they’ll be successful.”
