Alicia Keys May Include Son Egypt on ‘Girl on Fire’ Album

Not to be outdone by Jay-Z and Blue Ivy, Alicia Keys is considering including her son, Egypt, on her upcoming ‘Girl on Fire’ album.

“He might need a cameo, you know what I mean? He might,” the 31-year-old singer told Entertainment Weekly. “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.” Egypt is Keys’ 22-month-old son with Swizz Beatz.

Keys isn’t the only celeb to start her child’s recording career early. Jay-Z featured his daughter’s vocals on his song ‘Glory’ shortly after she was born. Could a future Egypt-and-Blue-Ivy collaboration be as big as their parents’ mega hit ‘Empire State of Mind’? Keys said, “I think that they’re going to have a big future.”

Whether or not he appears on the LP, the R&B singer says Egypt was a major source of inspiration for her new album, which is due out on Nov. 27. Fans will hear the first single and title track of the record, ‘Girl on Fire,’ at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 6, and Keys’ episode of ‘VH1 Storytellers’ on Nov. 12.
