Alicia Keys' son's favourite lullaby is her song 'Not Even the King'.
Egypt - Alicia's son with hip-hop producer husband Swizz Beatz - loves when his mother sings to him and always requests one of the tracks she wrote for him from her new album, 'Girl on Fire'.
She told People magazine: "His favourite lullaby is my song 'Not Even the King. The first line is about money and he goes 'Money, Money'. It's really cute."
Alicia, 32, has previously told how her son is already showing musical promise, and is starting to learn instruments despite being only two years old.
She said: "He plays [piano]. Egypt has a stark sense of rhythm. He also plays the drums already. He likes that most. The kid's making noise all day long.
"He's adorable. Soon Egypt will come on tour with me, and then he'll get a taste of that world.
Alicia also told how Swizz is not shy of showing his romantic side, and recently showered her with flowers while she was touring.
She said: "He sent me the most incredible arrangement of flowers while I was on tour. His favourite song on my new album is called '101' so he sent 101 roses to my hotel room. It was so beautiful."
