How are you celebrating Mother's Day this year? With slow shipping and the difficulties of getting a card in a pandemic, you might not be totally prepared. That is okay because you can still say I love you and thank you to your mom (or grandma, or aunt, or sister, or any mom figure in your life) by letting music do the talking for you.
If you're unable to be with your mom due to social distancing restrictions, press play on some of our favorite songs about our dear mamas and remember your favorite moments together. It's not the same as being there, but it's a little way to spend more time with mom in mind after you hang up the FaceTime call with her.
If you're lucky enough to get to spend the holiday together in person, she might love it if you play these mom songs while spending some quality time with her — they are all mom-approved!
And then there are the men: Drake and Chance the Rapper are known for paying tribute to their moms prolifically, so picking just one track from each to celebrate the holiday was a real test (we let Chance get in a second one on Brandy's new track). Kanye West and Tupac deliver heartfelt tributes of their own that are now hip hop classics.
Whatever you do, whatever soundtrack you pick for your Mother's Day, don't forget to tell mom you love her.
