Still searching for the perfect Mother’s Day present? Look no further than the gift she may have given you: a love for music. Creating a homemade Mother’s Day playlist (much like those handmade cards you drew as a kid) can help you show your appreciation.
This Mother’s Day, give your mom a little extra themed love by stocking that playlist full of the 10 top-streamed artist moms on Spotify. You can check them out below, as well as a song to possibly share with your own mama.
1. Cardi B
Cardi B has it all: style, swag, and a new bundle of joy. Since giving birth to daughter Kulture in July 2018, the Grammy-winning rapper hasn’t slowed down for a second (not surprising, considering last year’s energetic Coachella performance with a giant baby bump).
Beyoncé is no stranger to sharing her family life with the world. She and husband Jay Z have three kids: Blue Ivy (seven), and twins Rumi and Sir (almost two). And who could forget Beyoncé’s beautiful pregnancy announcement?
Since having two kids—Willow (nine) and Jameson (two)—with motocross pro husband Carey Hart, P!nk has continued to churn out emotional dance-floor-ready hits while spreading the empowering messages she’s shared with her daughter.
For Shakira, the Colombian singer-songwriter, dancer, businesswoman, and philanthropist, every day is busy—but she’s happy to spend time with her two young sons and husband, Spanish footballer Gerard Pique, whenever, wherever.
Rising R&B star Kehlani can now add “mom” to her growing resume; her daughter, Adeya, just arrived in March 2019.
7. Britney Spears
It might seem like just yesterday that Britney Spears was a teenager herself, but the superstar singer now has two of her own. Her Instagram is full of sweet tributes to her sons, Sean and Jayden.
8. Alicia Keys
9. Christina Aguilera
In between making music and inspiring young talent on The Voice, Christina Aguilera is a mom to two young kids, Max (eleven) and Summer (four).
10. Mariah Carey
Pop queen Mariah Carey is a legend and an icon to fans, and to her eight-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, she’s “Mom.”
But you don’t need to stop with these rockin’ moms. “A Song for Mama” by Boyz To Men is the most-added song to listener-created Happy Mothers Day playlists. It’s followed by Meghan Trainor’s track “Mom” which features vocals from her mom, Kelli. ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” and Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are” are also popular picks. You’ll be in good company: Streams of user playlists titled “Happy Mother’s Day” have grown each year since 2016, increasing 19% from 2016 to 2018.
