Alicia Keys May Feature Son Egypt on New Album

Alicia Keys

Watch out Blue Ivy. There’s another celebrity baby waiting in line for his cameo. Alicia Keys reveals that her son Egypt may make an appearance on her upcoming album.

“He might need a cameo, you know what I mean? He might,” the Grammy-winning songstress told Entertainment Weekly of her 22-month-old son with Swizz Beatz. “He may need to say a couple words. There’s one song in particular called ‘When It’s All Over’ that he may need a little feature on. So we’ll see.”

It wouldn’t be the first time a child has appeared on their parent’s record. Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter was barely out of the womb before her father recorded her vocals for “Glory.”

“I think that they’re going to have a big future,” laughed Alicia when asked if her son and Blue Ivy would release an album together.

Giving birth to Egypt inspired her fifth album Girl on Fire, due November 27. “You get an immediate perspective shift,” said Alicia. “There’s just nothing like it. And, all of a sudden, it’s like you’re a full-on fu**ing grown up. It’s obviously because you’re a mom and you’re caring for another life. But it’s more than that: It’s like you have a sense of what feels right and what doesn’t feel right.”

The 31-year-old singer plans to bring Egypt on the road with her when she tours. “I’m actually really excited about it because he’s at the perfect age to come with me,” she shared. “He’s just at that great, beautiful age where he’s exploring so much and he’s learning so much. He’s taking everything in. I feel that 100% it’s going to make me look at the world in different eyes.”

She traveled to Jamaica and London, but the majority of the album was recorded in New York. “That’s my hometown, so I love being here and there’s something really powerful about this city that resonates in me,” said Alicia, who collaborated with Babyface, Gary Clarke Jr., Pop & Oak, Emeli Sandé, and Jamie xx.

Alicia will debut “Girl on Fire,” the first single from the album, at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on September 6. She will also showcase new material at the iTunes Festival in London on September 28.

    ……..
    What exactly can he do? I mean he might be able to sing but he ain’t no young MJ so it wouldn’t benefit anything but I still love Alicia and it would be a cute collaboration Mother & Son and maybe produced by the father???

    @Be3000, Girl Alicia!!! _/ _/ SIT!!! I’m over this homewrecking bitch!!! She has the NERVE to want to put this baby on a track, that will SEAL her fate, because that baby was made in SIN!!!! She slept with a married man, and Karma will make this album flop, her album sales decrease each time anyway.

    @MinajRules2012, LOL you always go in on Alicia Keys calling her a homewrecker. Get over it… She’s not the only one to have done that. Forgive and forget. Move on. You need some Jesus in your life (and your meds)

    @Miles, I think Egypt might surprise you. He can speak very well and I wouldn’t be too surprised if he can sing as well. I would love to hear him and Alicia. God help the ignorant and hateful people who have anything bad to say about either one of them, especially that little child.

    @Be3000, I would still love to hear the little guy, no matter what he says or sings. Lovin Ms alicia and that little one. It would be beyond cute and way better than an infants cries.

    @MinajRules2012, You’re like an iritating fly and you are so pathetic. It’s like you have a one track mind and are obsessed with hatred. I feel sorry for you. Many many blessings to Ms Keys.

    Egypt is a smart little boy, he is not even 2 and there is a youtube video of him at a radio station with Swizz and he is too adorable he was talking in the mike and repeating everything his dad said. It would be cute.
