On Saturday, Beyoncé headlined a private concert for the grand reveal of Dubai’s newest luxury hotel, Atlantis The Royal, in Dubai. The musician performed an hour-long set and at one point, she brought out her daughter Blue Ivy Carter for a duet of their song “Brown Skin Girl.
The 11-year-old continued to prove she’s a star-in-the-making when she strolled out in a red sequined jumpsuit topped with a billowy skirt, and flipped her braids while she walked down to her mom’s side.
As Beyoncé started performing “Brown Skin Girl,” Blue Ivy stood beside her and danced, nailing the choreography that the dancers were doing beside her. When the song ended, she hugged her mom, walked up the steps, and struck a pose, even blowing kisses to the crowd like a pro before she left the stage.
In addition to Brown Skin Girl, Beyoncé performed staples such as “Crazy in Love,” “Beautiful Liar” and “Naughty Girl,” as well as hits “Freedom,” “Spirit” and “Be Alive.” She, however, did not perform any songs from her Grammy-nominated 2022 “Renaissance” album.
Beyoncé’s weekend performance marked her first full concert since 2018, the last being the Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa, in December 2018. The multi-talented star reportedly earned a whopping $24 million for the intimate affair.
Among the star-studded guests in attendance were Beyoncé husband Jay Z, twins Rumi and Sir, her mother Tina Knowles Lawson, and father Matthew Knowles. Other celebrities in attendance included Chloe and Halle Bailey, Rebel Wilson, Nia Long and Kendall Jenner.
Beyoncé performance was part of Atlantis The Royal’s “Grand Reveal” weekend celebration of their new luxury hotel, which is set to open next month.
“This is it. Our moment is finally here to reveal Atlantis The Royal as the world’s most ultra-luxury entertainment resort,” Managing Director of Atlantis Dubai Tim Kelly said in a statement last year. “Openings of resorts like this one only come around once or twice in a decade, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”
