He's just 5-years-old and already composing his own ballads.

The oldest son of 35-year-old Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, 38, showed off his incredible musical talents with a song he wrote and composed by himself.

Egypt Dean performed the song, called Super-boy, on the piano in a debut post on Instagram.

The little boy is wearing an adorable black and yellow dinosaur shirt as he confidently takes the reigns on the keyboard.

He starts out by singing the simple lyrics, 'I am a super-boy' while playing the chords at the same time without looking away from the camera.

He appears to get his incredible piano skills from his Grammy-winning mom, who is also an incredible piano player.

By the end of the song, the musical prodigy is channeling Mozart with an impressive piano riff, showing just how fast he can move his fingers across the keys without looking down once.

He's clearly enjoying the praise as he looks directly at the camera during the impressive final seconds, pressing harder on by the end to make a bigger impact.

His doting dad posted the performance on Instagram.


'Proud Dad Alert. Egy wrote his 1st song Super-boy, wait for the fancy fingers at the end. Kids you gotta love em,' he captioned the video.

The tyke already has professional producing under his belt, earning some major clout in the industry.

In March, he was credited with producing a track on Kendrick Lamar's album, 'untitled unmastered,' for the song 'untitled 07 | 2014 - 2016.'


At the time, Swizz posted the proud moment to Instagram.

'This is the best Dad moment everrrrr!!! Congrats to my son Egypt for producing his 1st track on this amazing Kendrick Album,' he captioned the post. '@aliciakeys look at our lil guy baby.'
