Alicia Keys' son, Egypt, with husband, Swizz Beatz, showed off dancing skills in a video shared on social media on his 9th birthday.


Alicia Keys is a fifteen-time Grammy winner, her husband, Swizz Beatz is an award-winning record producer, and it seems their son, Egypt, has the title of the "Best dancer," in the family.

The young man showed off his dancing skills in a video shared by Beatz on Instagram in celebration of his 9th birthday.

The clip showed Egypt in a white outfit, holding a blue balloon, and dancing to "Joro" by the Nigerian musician, Wizkid. The little boy was recorded by his father, with Keys, and his siblings in the background.

In a separate post, Egypt showed off a lot of leg and arm movements while still showing off his dancing skills, and in the accompanying caption, his dad wrote,

"Keep that same energy king. Happy nine years of amazing fun times, EG… candy mouth."

In a third post, Beatz shared a photo of his first son with Keys sitting like a "Boss" in what appears to be a private jet, and looking out the window. The DJ turned record producer captioned it,


"Keep dreaming big, son, happy birthday Egypt."


While the young celebrant loves to dance, his talents go beyond body movements to producing great hits like his parents.

Back in 2016, Egypt worked with Kendrick Lamar on his "Untitled Unmastered" seven-track compilation album. Speaking on his son's achievement at the time, Beatz said,

"I am a little jealous of my son because he worked on a Kendrick Lamar album before me… [Egypt] produced it, wrote it, and Kendrick actually used it. He made history as the youngest producer."



The young man equally had another historic moment with his mom at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music

Awards. Keys invited him to join her during her performance of "Raise a Man," and the mother and son stole the hearts of the audience as she sang, and he played a second piano.

Gushing about the performance on social media, the proud mom wrote,

"The mommy and me moment I've been dreaming of. Wowowow! Egy, I'm in awe of you! You are so brave and beautiful, and you make me so proud."


She continued,

"The feeling I felt with you next to me doing this song, full-body chills. You rocked son. Your journey is just beginning, and I'm blessed to #raiseaman like you."

At nine, Egypt's journey is indeed at its starting point, and with what he's accomplished so far, he'll achieve more with the guidance of Keys and Beatz.
