Does success run in the family? Victoria Beckham is hoping so. She’s set son Cruz up with a SoundCloud account to help kick-start his pop star career.
The former Spice Girls singer has given her 11-year-old boy a helping hand on the music-sharing site and posted a link to his first effort, a stripped back cover of Justin Bieber’s ‘Home to Mama’.
She wrote on Twitter: “Cute!! X Cruz and @justinbieber x VB (sic)”
The audio clip features Cruz singing parts of the acoustic track and the ‘Never Say Never’ hitmaker’s lyrics can be heard on other sections of the tune.
Cruz’s version of the song has been viewed on the site more than 26,000 times and his profile has attracted more than 700 followers at the time of writing.
He uploaded the song on Saturday but has yet to share any more of his tunes.
Earlier this month, Victoria was said to be keen to oversee Cruz’s pop career, despite husband David – who she also has kids Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, and five-year-old Harper with – thinking she is already too busy with her fashion empire.
A source said: “Victoria is adamant she needs to be Cruz’s manager and says it’s a no brainer given she has the vital experience from being in the industry for so long and knowing the mechanics of how it works.
“David thinks it is too much and doesn’t know how she’ll have the time to give Cruz the attention he needs. But she insists she’ll do whatever it takes and make sacrifices if need be to ensure she’s there to guide him.”
What’s more, in September, Simon Cowell admitted he was keen to sign Cruz to his Syco record label.
He said at the time: “Get him in and we’ll sign him.
“I met them when they were younger and I have to say they are really incredible kids.
“They could have been really spoilt but they weren’t – they were really funny when they came down to one of the shows.
“I know the Beckhams get criticized for being in the public eye but if you’re in the public eye your kids are going to be too.”
