' So I said, 'What's your name?' he said, 'Showtime
Alicia Keys' son Egypt is set to make his vocal debut on his mum's upcoming album GIRL ON FIRE.
The Grammy winner's latest project hits U.S. stores on Tuesday (27Nov12) and Keys insists her fans are in for a treat - her two year old with producer husband Swizz Beatz is featured on a few of the tracks, including one song produced by Dr Dre, New Day.
During an interview on U.S. news show Person to Person, she says, "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". Egypt is not the first celebrity tot to make their vocal debut at such a young age - Beyonce's daughter Blue Ivy featured on her dad Jay-Z's track Glory earlier this year (12).
