    Alicia Keys' two-year-old son Egypt (dad is Swizz Beatz) makes his vocal debut on mommy's new album Girl on Fire.

    Egypt appears on the Dr. Dre-produced new track "New Day."

    "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 recor; 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.'"

    She continued, "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."

    Spoken like a proud mama. And damn if little Egypt doesn't sound adorable.

    Did you nab a copy of Girl on Fire yet?
