Following in his parents' footsteps! Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz’s 6-year-old son, Egypt, already has some serious musical talent.

The little boy composed and performed his first hit, “Super-boy,” on the piano, and his dad couldn’t wait to share it with his fans.

“Proud Dad Alert,” the hip-hop artist captioned the cute video, which he posted to Instagram on Monday, November 28. “Egy wrote his 1st song Super-boy, wait for the fancy fingers at the end. Kids you gotta love em #Dedication #hardwork EGY-Keys-Beatz.”

Egypt barely even looked at the keyboard as he played chords and sang the lyrics “I am a Super-boy.”

Wearing a dinosaur T-shirt, the schoolboy stared at the camera and picked up momentum on the keys to build up to a dramatic and pretty fancy finish.
