- Los Angeles, Nov 26 (IANS) Singer Alicia Keys' two-year-old son Egypt can be heard in his mother's upcoming album "Girl On Fire".
Keys' album will hit US stores Tuesday. The 31-year-old says her fans will be surprised to see her son and producer husband Swizz Beatz in on a few of the tracks, reports contactmusic.com.
During an interview on US news show "Person to Person", she said: "I got him on one of these mics and he stood on the little chair... and I just started asking him different questions... You'll hear it on the record, it's so cute."
"I asked him to say, 'Mommy,' so then he says, 'Mommy,' and then I asked him to say, 'I love you', so he says, 'I love you' ... His daddy is really known for this particular thing, he always shouts out when he's about to perform, he says, 'It's showtime'. So I said, 'What's your name?' he said, 'Showtime'. I said, 'But what's your name?' and he said, 'Egypt'. So it was perfect, he did amazing," she added.
Egypt is not the first celebrity kid to make a vocal debut at such a young age. Singer Beyonce Knowles' daughter Blue Ivy featured on her father Jay Z's track "Glory" earlier this year.
