May 9 (UPI) -- Celine Dion's son Rene-Charles Angelil is a budding rapper.

Rene-Charles, the 17-year-old son of Dion and late husband Rene Angelil, celebrated Tuesday after topping the SoundCloud "New & hot" R&B and Soul chart.

Rene-Charles, who performs under the name Big Tip, reached No. 1 and No. 2 on the chart with covers of The Weeknd's songs "Sidewalks" and "Loft Music." He titled his "Sidewalks" remix "Catwalks."

Rene Angelil, a music producer and Dion's longtime manager, died at age 73 in January 2016. He was survived by Dion, Rene-Charles and twin sons Nelson and Eddy, now 7.

"He gave me three magnificent children. I see him through them every day," Dion told The Sun's Bizarre in April 2017.

"Even though they don't have their papa anymore, mama is there, and papa is there because papa is in their heart," the Grammy-winning singer added. "I'm extremely proud of my children."
