Clearly talent runs in the Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys household as the couple’s 6-year-old son is already a natural performer. Swizz just posted a video on Instagram showing Egypt singing a song and playing the piano.
“Proud Dad Alert,” wrote Swizz on Monday. “Egy wrote his 1st song Super-boy. Wait for the fancy fingers at the end. Kids you gotta love em. #Dedication #hardwork. EGY-Keys-Beatz.”
Yup, this youngster wrote his own song and performed it for Swizz’s 1.5 million followers. Though the lyrics are simple (he’s a kid after all), the tot’s piano playing skills are serious. He whips out some fancy finger work at the end and doesn’t skip a beat while singing and playing simultaneously.
This isn’t the first time Egypt has proved he can hang with the music moguls. Months ago Swizz posted another clip of his son in the studio actually producing a beat for Kendrick Lamar’s new album.
“This is Egypt playing the intro to his beat on #Kendrick #7 on the album,” wrote the proud dad. “5yrs old in his zone !!#proudparents.”
We’ll be on the lookout for a family collaboration. It will be like a modern day (and way cooler) version Partridge family.
