Alicia Keys appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night show where she discussed the musical talents of her family. During the segment, the Grammy-winning singer showed a video of her 3-year-old son Genesis beatboxing.
Keys said her youngest son picked up beatboxing naturally. The couple’s oldest son Egypt was credited as a producer on Kendrick’s Untitled Unmastered at just five years old. Swizz shared a video of the young boy playing the keys to the record. With her being a piano player and Swizz being a veteran music producer it seems only natural their children would pick up the talent.
In regards to how the family could benefit from a house full of talent, Alicia joked, “I was thinking maybe we could be like the new Jackson five.”
The songstress who is a judge on The Voice says she is also working on new music.”New music is coming so soon. I’m ready to put my spell on you.”
