R. Kelly - "Sadie"

I'm not a particular fan of R. Kelly, but this song, off his 1993 album 12 Play, is absolutely beautiful. It's a rendition of The Spinners' 1974 song and was dedicated to his mother Joan, who raised him as a single mom in Chicago and had passed away earlier that year. Along with "Dear Mama," it's one of the best Mother's Day songs that hip hop and R&B have to offer.

Happy Mother's Day.
