This Mother’s Day we’re celebrating the moms who juggle the demands of parenting with life in the limelight.
Spotify’s global list of most-streamed moms is topped by Cardi B, whose first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus, was born in July 2018. Mom-of-three, Beyoncé comes in second, followed byAdele, P!nk, and Shakira. Rounding up the top 10 are Kehlani in no. 6 followed by Britney Spears, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, and Mariah Carey.
And for anyone looking for a way to celebrate their own superstar mom for Mother’s Day, look no further than a trend started by Spotify’s very own listeners; creating a personalized playlist just for mom.
Spotify noticed Happy Mother’s Day playlists have grown in the last few years, with their streams increasing 19 percent from 2016 to 2018. Overall, users have created more than 7.8 million mom-themed playlists.
“A Song for Mama” by Boyz To Men is the most-added song to Happy Mothers Day playlists created by listeners, followed by Meghan Trainor’s track “Mom,” which features vocals from her IRL mom, Kelli Trainor. ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” and Bruno Mars’s “Just the Way You Are” are also popular picks.
And while thoughtfully-chosen tracks make each playlist special and unique to each mom, some listeners add an even more personalized touch by uploading a photo of their mom, or a nostalgic pic as the playlist cover.
Most included songs in Happy Mother’s Day playlists on Spotify, globally also include “Dear Mama” by 2Pac, “Mama” by Spice Girls, “Hey Mama” by Kanye West, “Happy” byPharrell Williams, “Mama’s Song” by Carrie Underwood, and “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrisson.
