Drake might be the biggest mama's boy around. He talks about her all the time, he takes her to events, he throws her magical birthday parties...what more could you ask for from the guy? –Maria Sherman

R&B multi-hyphenate The-Dream has a heartfelt ballad on his first album titled “Mama,” in which he sings to his mother that he’s “always thinking of you.” He later used the song “Take U Home 2 My Mama” to describe the ultimate level of a romantic relationship: his girl gets to meet Mother Dream. –Jason Lipshutz

The country legend performed a tribute to his mother when he covered “Mom” on his 2014 album Man Against Machine and used the song to soundtrack a video collage he made to his mother on Mother’s Day 2015. Fun fact: Brooks’ mother, Colleen Carroll, was a music star in her own right in the 1950’s. –Jason Lipshutz

There are two themes that always pop up in Justin Bieber interviews (and we're not talking about the Taco Bell thing). The "Sorry" singer always manages to thank God and his mother, who not only brought him into the regular world but the music one, too. He owes a lot to Pattie and everyone knows it. Good thing this relationship is an endlessly loving one! –Maria Sherman

Real Friends' Kyle Fasel

Chicago pop-punk revivalists Real Friends are gearing up to release their sophomore full-length The Home Inside My Head. The latest track from the release is "Scared To Be Alone," a song bassist Kyle Fasel wrote about his mom. Sometimes showing you care means showing you're concerned, too. –Maria Sherman

Usher's mama boy status goes so deep, there are multiple articles on the stuff. Seriously. Multiple. Articles. We get it, though. It's impossible not to love Jonetta Patton. –Maria Sherman

Chris Brown

Chris Brown has always been depicted as a bad boy, but the singer’s soft spot comes out whenever he’s around his mother, Joyce Hawkins. She has stood by her son’s side for an endless number of tough (and very public) times, and even reportedly helped Breezy see his daughter Royalty in the midst of a nasty custody battle with the baby’s mother. –Bianca Gracie

Big Sean

Big Sean credits his humbleness to the close relationship he has with mom, Myra Anderson. She’s a big inspiration in the rapper's music whenever he discusses his upbringings in Detroit, and she also is a big supporter of his relationships! Back when Sean Don was dating Ariana Grande, Myra adorably expressed her approval to the paparazzi. Awww! –Bianca Gracie

Puff Daddy may be one of the biggest rap moguls of all time (he recently took the No.1 spot on Forbes’ Five Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artists of 2016 with an insane $750 million fortune), but he’s also a major mama’s boy—and proud of it! Janice Combs has appeared by her smiling son’s side on endless red carpets, yacht parties and family turn ups. Puff also has no issues showing off his mother on Instagram, like he did on her birthday in 2014.Bianca Gracie
