Andre 3000 has come back into the spotlight by releasing two new singles in honor of Mother’s Day and I have to say the songs are pretty alright alright alright alright alright alright alright alright alright alright alright alright alright alright alright alright!

“Look Ma No Hands” and “Me & My (To Bury Your Parents)” might have different sounds than what’s typically expected of the 42 year old rapper, but they are still pretty awesome. The songs do not feature any flashy raps or synthesized beats, heck one of them doesn’t even have any vocals. Instead, the two songs are stripped down jazz ballads that will make your heart melt, especially when you combine it with the context of Mom’s Day. As if that wasn’t enough to get the feels started early on a Sunday morning, the songs pack an even bigger emotional punch when you realize that Andre 3000 lost both of his parents. His mother died one day after his 38th birthday, and his father died about a year after that. “Me & My (To Bury Your Parents)” actually tells of how much happier the rapper was when his parents were alive, as he recounts happy childhood memories. “Look Ma No Hands” is a 17-minute long instrumental track, that is so unexpected, yet poetically beautiful. It has been 6 years since the rapper has released any new music of his own, but obviously he has used that time to grow as an artist.

Give these songs a listen and give your mom an extra big hug today! Happy Mother’s Day!
