Monroe and Moroccan are making their debut as a recording artists. Mariah Carey tells media that her son and daughter will be featured on her much anticipated album that hits music stores in May.


“It’s a song that I wrote with Bryan-Michael Cox and Jermaine Dupri,” says Carey. “There’s a part that Jermaine says on the song that [the kids] loved, and Monroe started to say it. I kept having to get my iPhone and record her. So I have all these different takes of her saying things, singing things. Then I’d be like, ‘This is your new ad lib — learn it!’ I have to make it fun for her.”

Although acting may not be a career they pursue as kids, Mariah tells PEOPLE that singing may be in Monroe and Moroccan’s near future. “They started singing and talking simultaneously. It’s hard to explain. That sounds like a lie, but it’s true. They’re both so musical.”

Their talents may take them a long way in coming years but for now the twins just enjoy lounging around and watching movies with mom. “Their favorite thing is: ‘Lie down, Mommy.’ Meaning: ‘Lay with me and watch a movie,'” explains Carey. “Otherwise they have to watch Your Baby Can Read or something educational. I’m a tough task-master like that.”

Monroe and Moroccan are Mariah Carey’s kids with husband Nick Cannon.
