Angelic Diamonds presents the Ultimate Mothers’ Playlist, with Beyoncé, Britney Spears, and Alicia Keys featuring in the Top 10.

As the world prepares for Mother’s Day, we’ve crawled 1,800 Spotify playlists and more than 128,000 tracks to help you recognise some of the most important women in your lives.

To celebrate these musical icons who have pioneered the empowerment of women, we collated data from Spotify playlists that included words relating to powerful women, divas, and more specifically, female solo artists who are in fact mothers, or mothers-to-be, themselves.

Looking for something to help your mum relax as you cook her a special Mother’s Day dinner?

Check out the Ultimate Mothers’ Playlist here.
