Need receipts? Let’s start with the fact that she was making headlines before she was even born and currently holds the record as the youngest artist to chart on Billboard at less than a day old. The only way someone is going to beat that is by sampling an ultrasound!
But Blue’s influence extends beyond guest features and gossip columns. The future Grammy winner inspired her mom to reach new creative heights on Beyonce by giving her a new perspective on life. So send Blue your gratitude and birthday wishes by revisiting her finest achievements after the jump.
Blue collected wigs with her first breath — instantly becoming America’s new obsession. Having the world’s coolest parents will have that effect.
2. She is a living meme
Jokes about Blue Ivy’s wealth and resemblance to her papa keep Twitter and Tumblr humming. Don’t worry, BIC will have the last laugh when she’s old enough to use social media and posts a pic of herself rolling in hundred dollar bills.
Bey thought she was fancy with all that glow-in-the-dark make-up on the set of “Blow” until Blue arrived and showed how a true diva rocks neon.
4. She’s the youngest charting artist in musical history
When Jay Z sampled our Blue’s cries on “Glory”, she became the youngest artist to appear on a Billboard chart when the song reached number 23 on the Rap Songs countdown. When will your newborn?
5. This picture got one million likes on Instagram
Forget about Rihanna. The true queen of Instagram is Blue Ivy. The toddler inspired more than one million people to click the like button with this happy snap.
6. She has customized Timberland boots
While you’re rocking the latest K-Mart fashions, BIC is scampering around the Carter compound in customized Timberland boots.
7. She also owns this leather jacket
Blue Ivy’s swag is undeniable. She will be the coolest kid at daycare (ie. Mama Tina’s mansion) in this outfit.

8. She has her own fan army
The two-year-old is so popular in The Hive that she already has her own stans called Blue Birds. And yes, the internet is a weird place.
9. She inspired this stunning artwork
Why isn’t this hanging in The Louvre?
10. She survived this harrowing journey
The world held its collective breath when Bey casually carried the future queen on pop on to her yacht in towering high heels. Happily, the superstar’s grip and balance is superhuman and BIC casually enjoyed a day at sea.
And let’s not forget the mini-diva’s latest achievement. If you weren’t touched by the toddler’s feature on Beyonce highlight “Blue”, your heart probably isn’t beating. Watch a preview of the video below.
