Some people give mom a dozen roses on Mother’s Day, but our friends at Deezer are giving her a dozen songs that celebrate her. In every genre, artists honor what it means to be a mama – the joy, struggles and everything in between.
Here are four you’ll enjoy:
Alicia Keys Featuring A$AP Rocky, "Blended Family (What you do for Love)": Alicia Keys delivers a poignant message to her stepsons opening up about the joys and difficulties of creating a new family with her husband and his son from his previous marriage. Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky recalls the best parts about being a kid in a blended family, rhyming, "I remember having four stepmoms at nine/ Love Christmastime and birthday was fly."
2Pac's "Dear Mama": 2pac may have been all about the “thug life,” but he wasn’t afraid to let the world know how he felt about his mom. In the late, great 2Pac's tribute to his mama, who gave birth to him a month after being released from jail, the late rap icon says the words that every mother wants to hear: "You are appreciated.”
Trace Adkins' "Hot Mama”: Trace Adkins tips his cowboy hat to all the "Hot Mamas" of the world: "You worry about your hips, and you worry about your age/Meanwhile I'm tryin' to catch the breath you take away." Awww.
OutKast, “Ms. Jackson”: Mothers-in-law don't get their own special day. But here's a special song devoted to the mother of the mother of a singer's child. This OutKast hit is something of an open letter to the real-life mom of Erykah Badu, André 3000's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his son.
