In Alicia Keys’ household, precocious debuts run in the family: Remember, her first studio album won five Grammys and catapulted her to soul’s elder statesman status at age 21.
Keys and Swizz Beatz’s son Egypt got his first album credit on Kendrick Lamar’s Untitled Unmastered, but there’s more. Swizz posted a video of Egypt freestyling on a piano to the tune of “Super-Boy,” a song he wrote himself. The melody is standard and repetitive to start but as the video progresses, the kid’s piano chops really shine.
“Proud Dad Alert 🚨😂 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,” wrote Swizz.
